    I had successfully jailbroken (semi-tethered) with
    "[HD Video] How to Semi-Tethered JailBreak [Windows, Working Cydia]".

    Then I followed the Winterboard patch tutorial
    "(Tutorial) How to Install Winterboard Patch".
    And in the midst of that I missed a step and rebooted, and for some reason, the touch just died and its stuck on the apple logo screen with the black background, I tried putting it in recovery mode but iTunes doesn't seem to detect my touch (nor do I get the sound when you've connected something to your computer), so I'm unable to restore it.

    Any help guys? It'd be much appreciated.

    Sorry, but what do you mean by that? Re-jailbreak it?
    Also every now like every 5 mins or so, the apple screen blinks off then back on.
    And tried using using that decovery.exe but it can't find my touch.

    Yeah put it into DFU mode before you run Decovery.

    Yeah did that, just keeps searching for my iPod. Nothing else.

    Edit: I can get it to DFU, its that my computer can't seem to detect/find my iPod. Even though it's obviously connected to it. No beep sound saying that I've connected something with USB to my computer.

    Decovery uses the same internal workings as iRecovery, so your iPod MUST be in DFU mode first. Usually, getting it into DFU, it doesn't matter what state your iPod is in, on, off, doing something, you can always get it into DFU. If not, check if you are timing it correctly.

    Try just holding power. sometimes this can give it the power cycle necessary to fix random issues like this, and you might be able to DFU it at that point.
