    I was in the middle of a 3.1.2 restore using a local server with my ECID SHSH file, then in the middle of the restore when the progress bar pops up under the apple itunes gave me an unknown error saying that I could not restore, now my ipod is stuck at the screen with the apple/ progress bar and my computer doesn't recognize it. I cant power it off either because my lock button is broken, which is the reason I tried to restore it. how can I get it in any working condition?

    You could use irecovery to force a reboot. Look it up, shouldn't be too hard to find. If you just get it to run and find your ipod and type 'reboot' it should boot it back into restore mode.
