1. Press and hold the "sleep/wake" button and "home" button at the same time for 10-15 seconds, until the Apple logo appears on
2. After the Apple logo disappears, and the main menu is shown, ensure that all of your music/files/photos are still in tact.
3.

    Sorry that the solution I gave you did not work. Also try this. This should clear up everything:




      Complete a Regular Restore

    1. Back up your iPod Touch's data to your computer before the restore to prevent losing data. You'll need to reinstall it after the restore process.

    2. Connect to the Internet and install the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website.

    3. Make sure your iPod Touch is connected to your computer.

    4. Pick "iPod Touch" in the Source pane of the iTunes program.

    5. Click on the Summary tab.

    6. Choose "Check for Update."

    7. Select "Restore" and follow the instructions to finish restoring your iPod Touch.
      Complete an Advanced Restore

    8. If following the steps in the previous section did not work, follow these steps to perform an advanced restore. Turn off the power on the iPod Touch.

    9. Plug the iPod Touch into your computer.

    10. Power on the iPod Touch.

    11. Press the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons together for 5 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

    12. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button but continue holding down the "Home" button. The iPod Touch should reboot, and iTunes will notice the iPod Touch in recovery mode.

    13. Return to the above section and follow those steps to restore your iPod Touch.

    WARNING

    Restoring iPod Touch software will return the iPod to its factory condition, and the restoration process will erase all data.

First you need to completely charge your itouch, away from your pc. If it is completely charged you should try it using a usb port and wire, not a firewire. If you still can't get it out of recovery mode, try to reset sync history in your itunes account, make sure not to delete it(that is your back up information of your itouch) and if that still doesn't help you, you can try what worked for me and if your using wndows xp set up a new user name for windows log on, and then click on itunes when it opens it will walk you through as if your new setting up your account, to get all of you past purchases, and software back login with your existing account and then you should see the button to restore to original factory mode, because your still in recovery mode until this completes. this worked for me I was shocked and happy at the same time.. Good luck CClark

Help please tell how to exit recovery mode


How to Fix an iPod Touch Stuck in Recovery Mode With a Free Program
An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues. Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit. The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version. Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods. In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore. When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process. You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.

Things You'll Need
-Apple iTunes-USB cable


Instructions
1 Turn on your computer and open iTunes. If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding.
2 Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer. Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet.
3 Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step.
4 Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch.
5 Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen. At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode.
6 Click "OK."
7 Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen.
8 Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore." Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again. The restoration process takes a few minutes. Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.

*Must have iPod plugged into computer while doing this*

Be patient, the force restore part may take up to 20 seconds.

1. Press and hold the home button and the sleep/wake button. (the power off option will appear, ignore it)
2. When the apple logo appears let go of the sleep/wake button (keep holding the home button.)
3. After a few seconds you should see the connect to iTunes image (you can now let go of the home button.)
4. Open iTunes .
5. iTunes should automatically recognize your iPod once the image comes up, if not unplug your iPod and plug it back in.
6. Restore your iPod by clicking the "Restore" button.

a. Uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes or
b. restoring on a different compute

I have an iphone I downloaded the ants application which seems to have closed the phone down completely I cant get to restore


Products Affected iPhone, iPod touch
Symptoms that may have occurred with an unsuccessful restore may include a frozen screen—either at the Apple logo or some other application—or the device may repeatedly reset.
  1. Verify you have iTunes 7.5 or later. Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch.
  3. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
  4. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting USB cable. When you reconnect USB, the device should then power on.

    Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again. ht1808_01.jpg
  5. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  6. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: ht1808_02.jpgIf you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore iPhone or iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available). See document 305744, "Updating and Restoring iPhone Software."
If you are still unable to restore the iPhone using this method, check Apple support for further troubleshooting and/or service options.
Note: If you sync both an iPhone and an iPod touch to the same computer, make sure you select the correct backup to restore your settings from (don't select an iPhone backup if you have an iPod touch and don't select an iPod touch backup if you have an iPhone).
