Device Firmware Update, hence it’s a mode where the iPod
Touch device will be made to force restore into whatever versions it’s
If you're not trying to 'restore' it, take it out of this mode
[If you are, you should be installing firmware]
Here are instructions that are Windows & MAC compatible:
[remember this is HOW to get to DFU mode
Before you begin, turn on your iPod Touch (make sure it won’t auto
lock, to prevent mistakes), and connect it to iTunes. Once iTunes shows
your device, perform the following steps:
Step 1: Hold down the “Home” button
Step 2: Hold down the “Standby” button
Step 3: When it says “slide to turn off”, ignore it. It
should restart with a blank screen. Look at iTunes, and your device
should be removed. Now lift the Standby button, while still holding
onto the Home button.
Step 4: Keep holding the Home button until the iPod
reconnects on iTunes. When the device shows up in iTunes, that’s when
you’ll need to lift up your button. If you wait any longer, it will go
into Recovery Mode, and that’s not what you want. Your iPod should be blank.
Step 5: Now iTunes will tell you that the iPod Touch is in Recover Mode.
If you didn't know exactly how you got where you are, or you want to change the mode, use the directions to guide you.
If that doesn't solve it, post back with more details
