Unhappy iPod restore stuck on "Restoring iPod software"

Hello guys, yesterday I tried restoring my iPod 3G to factory settings, (restoring to 5.1) everything went well until the "restoring iPod software" phase got stuck.

I tried restoring on a PC it didn't work, I tried putting my iPod in DFU mode it didn't work either.

I gave it too much time but it won´t proceed… please help.







UPDATE: It turned out the firmware bundle was corrupt, I redownloaded the 5.1 firmware right through iTunes and restored my iPod on my friend's Macbook Air, it worked like a charm, thanks for helping.

I tried, it didn't work.
Do you think it's a firmware bundle problem?

If you are using a custom firmware, probably yes.

Try going to felixbruns.de
Download the ipsw for your ipod
And Shift+Restore in iTunes and reflash with the one you downloaded from felixbruns.

Also might be an Apple Server issue too. Update iTunes, try a different USB cable

Hey, my firmware is already downloaded from felixbruns.de
I tried different USB cables, different laptop… it's not working
PS: My firmware is not customised, I´m not jailbreaking

May be a hardware problem on the iPod then. It should not be like that
