    I followed the Windows guide. It restored with the patched ipsw file.
    Now the screen is black and it shows up as an unrecognized device.

    I've held the home and sleep button for over a minute. There is no response from the iPod. I can't connect to it with iRecovery anymore.

    I boot into Ubuntu and it won't recognized it either.

    What else can I try?

    Any body have any suggestions?

    I have tried a whole bunch of ways to get it out of DFU mode but the screen remains blank.

    I'd hate to use the dreaded b word but that's what it seems like right now.

    Okay here's what to do. Hold down sleep and home button until you hear the usb recognized thingy on your computer. once you hear that let go of sleep but keep holding home. iTunes should come up and should tell you are in recovery mode. Restore.

    Unplug the ipod for a few minutes first. Then try to get into DFU mode.
