    Keep your iPod plugged into the PC. Hold the Home and Sleep button until the ipod turns off. When it turns off, let go of the SLEEP button while continuing to hold the HOME button. After a while, your ipod will go into restore mode, and itunes will be able to restore it.

    okay this is exactly what happened... i was jailbreaking... for some stupid reason i downloaded AppTapp... when i ran it I chose to restore the iphone (even though it was an iPod Touch) to the 1.0.2 firmware... after doing that I realized what the hell i just did and then i tried to restore through iTunes... got an error saying The iPod "iPod" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (-50)...

    Now i am totally stuck i tried pressing hold and sleep key to force the restore but it just didn't work it keeps giving me this error

    restore

    You installed iphone firmware on your ipod touch? :confused: yeesh. Well, i have no idea if the touch would appear in your disk utility tool (HD/applications/utilities) if it does try erasing/reformatting it?...If its bricked already, its worth a shot..

    I got the same problem that the ipod touch cannot be restored

    I tried the above restore method but it did not work, i found on google that the correct way is to "continue to hold both the sleep button and home button for 20-25s after the ipod touch is off" instead of let go of the SLEEP button while continuing to hold the HOME button

    Finnally my ipod is turned to recovery mode and i could restore it now~

    Well, also got the error -18.
    I managed to recover, though unsure of how.
    First I tried to restore through iTunes, but it kept giving the -18.

    I tried the "hardware reset" by holding the two buttons, same stuff.

    On the IPT, I used Settings>General>Reset>All (unsure of the English label)
    then Clear contents and settings

    THEN I was able to restore through iTunes :)
