I assume you are on a Windows computer. Unplug the iPod Touch from your computer, then click start and search services. Find Apple Mobile Device Driver and right click and then click install. Scroll down and find iPod Service, right click and restart. Close out of services, run iTunes as an administrator, unlock your iPod Touch if it is locked with a pass code, and then plug it in. Try to sync now. Let me know if this helps.

I've got the same problem but have an iPhone 4 - I used evasi0n 1.5 jailbreak for iOS 6.1.2. I can't sync anymore to the iTunes 11.0.2 on my Mac. After it reaches the "determining apps to sync" step, it just finishes without actually syncing any apps, photos or music.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It worked! But I had to restart it instead of installing it. Thanks
