    I've been searching and troubleshooting for the past 5 days already.

    So here's the case. My ipod wont get out of ,what i think is, PWNED DFU mode(Black screen no backlight). Itunes says in recovery mode and it needs to be restored.

    before anything my ipod when it was working:
    Ipod touch 4g 4.2.1 JB'ed untethered

    it started when i tried to restore from the ipod itself(General>reset all)

    after that it wont boot, it gets stuck on the greenpoison skull logo.
    then i think i restored it, then that's when it didn't show any display.

    i tried restoring to 4.2.1 first with Tinyubrella running tss server(cause i got 3194 error) and iREB (for error 14). then i Jailbreak it with Redsnow. after doing that for i think 5 times. 2 out of the 5 times i got it working in itunes and it can sync OK but the ipod has no display(black screen no backlight)

    tried fix recover, exit recover on tinyumbrella

    so that's where i am now.. i cant get out of PWND DFU mode or recovery mode(i know those are diff but i'm confused on which is which)

    Woul'd reaaaallly appreciate it if someone could help me. thanks! :)

    Same with me 2

    I did that recently today trying to restore my ipod touch 4th gen
    Then I thought restoring it from the inside of it would help but made it same as yours.
    Did you find a way to fix it so i dont need to send it in.
    I had green poison on it to 4.2.1 and then tried jailbreaking it from redsnow.
    But nothing is helping me
    IF you find anything email me

    1. Enter unpwned DFU (important)
    2. Open Redsn0w 0.9.9b8
    3. Go to extras--> fix recovery
    4. Start the process and eventually your iPod touch will reboot
