For one thing, you can't use TinyUmbrella to restore anything later than iOS 4.x. You need to use redsn0w to restore, or to stitch blobs for an iTunes restore. Try putting it in recovery mode by opening iTunes, unplugging the iPod from USB, then hold the home button continuously while reconnecting to USB, until it pops into recovery mode. Then you can restore to 6.0.1 with iTunes, or downgrade with redsn0w (Extras> Even more> Restore), assuming you have blobs.
