    Just try plugging it into iTunes and restoring it if you can.

    Even if you jailbreak, you should always be able to plug it in and just restore it to factory settings through iTunes.

    Can anyone confirm: if OP tries to restart in DFU mode will it go into Restore mode if no target OS is loaded?

    This is my best guess. If it's bricked, I don't know what you can do to hurt it at this point. I don't however, recommend it unless someone can confirm my belief that restarting using DFU mode is safe. Apple will likely find out it's jailbroken because you would be sending it in with a jailbroken OS.

    There is a mode of restarting the iPod called DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode. You had to have used DFU mode to jailbreak your iPod most likely. It's specifically meant to let a computer connected to the device to be able to target the device with a new OS. From personal experience, (this is what I'm looking to confirm) using DFU mode with the iPod not connected to a computer causes it to go into recovery mode.

    First, let's have you try a regular reset. To reset your iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears. If this doesn't work, reply indicating so.

    I'm going to toss out things to try here. With iTunes open, attempt to connect the iPod's cable to the iPod while holding the home button. Hopefully it will show in iTunes in 20-30 seconds.

    I'm extremely glad that worked. It would have been a shame for you to lose an iPod. Happy I could help!
