    So yesterday in my multiple failed attempts to fix my jb iPod, i finally realized that if i time my DFU perfectly, iTunes will read it.
    So that's exactly what i did and now my iPod is restoring!!!

    here is what u do.

    unplug your ipod from ur computer and turn it off.
    the hold down the homeb button for about 5 seconds and while still holding it down, plug in your ipod. the screen shouldn't turn on, but your computer (if your running windows) should recognize it in DFU mode... much easier in my opinion.
