I used redsn0w to create a DFU IPSW so I could attempt to jailbreak my device since the Home Button is broken. I created it, went over to iTunes, began to restore to it, it wiped my iPod, but at the very end, it gave me an error. (I forget what kind). Now, my computer will not recognize the device, it won't show any sign of turning on, I've tried holding down the power button for various amounts of time, nothing. redsn0w, iTunes, tiny umbrella all will not recognize the device.

Help?
Remember, the home button is broken. I do have SHSH blobs from iOS 6.1.3 from before trying to jailbreak- and I don't know much about this.

Device: iPod Touch 4th Gen, 32GB

Does the iPod have battery? If not then USB to computer won't charge it. Plug it to the wall.

Try another cable or USB slot or another computer.

iOS 6.1.3 is the current version therefore at this very moment, you can restore it to 6.1.3.

The iPod has battery, I've tried multiple USB ports, cords and computers, and it won't recognize anywhere to restore. And nothing happens on the device. I feel like I should take it to the apple store and just say it messed up when I restored to a backup.

Yes. Bring it back to Apple.
