    ..the progress bar in itunes is still stuck in the end and the ipod is showing the apple with the wait icon..
    Is it normal that it takes this long? Should I disconnect the ipod and restart the process?

    thanks a lot for your help.

    edit: I couldn't wait much longer (almost 2 hours

    Yea try DFU mode. It's just worth it to wait the first time.
