How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm in iOS 6, so when I was planning to jailbreak my iPod touch 4th gen in iOS 6 it just worked fine (since my home button is destroyed, so I tried the DFU IPSW & it worked) so after "restoring" it with a DFU IPSW File, it works jailbreaking done then just booting it also done. Then the ipod started to setup then when I was done settuping it I restored it from a iCloud Backup, after the backup it automaticallys turn to DFU Mode. Now I'm stuck! ALSO NOW!

my computer doesn't anymore recognize my iPod touch

TinyUmbrella can't do it

Again iOS 6 iPod touch 4th gen Broken Homebutton Stuck at DFU MODE Not being recognized by my Computer

THEN I tried to restored it to iOS 5.1.1 but with the error 1601, (iTunes)

After that

IT JUST STUCKS AT DFU MODE! DAMN I THINK my iPod is bricked already


DFU ipsw is not a working OS. It's only for placing a device in dfu so you can pwned dfu and restore to a pre-jailbroken custom ipsw. If your phone can't be recognized by iTunes with a broken home button, there is nothing you can do until you get that button fixed.
