    Ok, have you tried to reboot it? you hold down the power switch, and the the home button for ten seconds. this should make your ipod turn off then on, and boot normally.
    Hope this helps...

    the only solution really would be to bung it into dfu mode and restore and try again.

    plug iPod into pc and if off the ipod should be stuck at the apple logo

    hold down the home and the power buttons till the device goes off

    wait a couple seconds after it turns off

    now again hold the home and power buttons down for 10 seconds and then when you get to 10 let go of the power button only and hold the home button down for upto 30 seconds (you will know it's worked when windows beeps and iTunes detects iPod in recovery mode)

    click the restore button and let it restore

    once complete run quickpwn again and hopefully you should be up and running at some point with a jailbroken iPod
