Which iPod you have and which firmware are u trying to install? If you have the latest 6.1 update available for your iPod then just put you iPod in DFU MODE and update it to the latest ios 6.1 You would get a jailbreak for that soon

No. That won't work. You're trying to downgrade between iOS 6.x.x versions.

This downgrade is not possible U have to update to the latest ios update for your iPod and then jailbreak it You can update by putting your device in the DFU MODE Or the recovery mode

You can force the restore by pressing both home and sleep buttons. When the Apple logo appears keep pressing until apperars the connect to iTunes symbol. Then connect your device to your computer and iTunes automatically will start the restore process.
