    it won't turn on and it won't be recognized.
    and please don't restore it to factory settings since the computer won't even recognize it.

    why people post the same again and again and again???

    search for posts THAT ARE EXACTLY LIKE YOURS!!!!

    Rite, I think i´ve gotta help you.

    First, check your timings, you can use your cellphones stopwatch or ask your mom to count for you, look at the clock, but make sure you press both buttons for EXACTLY 10 seconds, not 10 seconds and 1ms, not 9 secs and 999ms, 10 seconds.

    Then, boot yor ipod using your computer, or any GUI that supports that, like cyw00d´s, redTool, wahtever.

    Now, use redTool to make your tethered iPod an UNTETHERED!! so that yo dont have to mess up with DFU just to turn it on.



    AND CHECK FOR OTHER POSTS

    let me rephrase the issue for u.
    my ipod is BLANK. it's not on. holding the power and home buttons for ten and then for 8 seconds doesn't work for me. the computer still says the usb device is not recognized. however, when i try to put in DFU mode i still get that same not recognized message.

    Hi, If you havent sorted out your iPod Touch then what i done is hold down the Home and Power buttons until the screen comes on and it should boot into the original ipod Software but wont be jailbroken no more so you will need to use a tethered jailbreak solution as the person said above
