    Alright so my iPods basically f***ed right now (stuck in recovery mode), Im sure Ill fix it eventually, but ive spent like the last 3 days doing everything I can find that worked for some people

    Anyways, when I put it in DFU mode, it either connects but turns on and goes into recovery mode and wont restore (gives me an error message halway through attempted restore) or iTunes shows me the pop-up message "waiting for iPod" w/ the green bar sliding accross (I hear the sound that the computer makes when the USB cable is plugged in about 15 seconds into that message) and after about 2 minutes of that it gives me this error message "An iPod has een detected, but it could not be identified properly. Please disconnect and reconnect the iPod, then try again. An unknown error occured (1602)."

    Anyone have an idea how I can fix this? Thanks in advance.

    Are you restoring to The Official 3.0 firmware or a Custom firmware?

    make sure you have itunes 8.2 up and the Ipod touch connected to the usb port.
    Press power and home button for 10 seconds, then release power button but keep pressing home button for 10-15 seconds. Does itunes recognize your Ipod in recovery mode? if you have the firmware file on your computer try Shift restore and browse to the firmware...hopefully you have a successfull Recovery.
