I tried to restore to 6.1.2 using redsn0w, but it is stuck on waiting for device and the apple logo is on my ipod touch. Is this supposed to happen?

Redsn0w has not been updated to support 6.1.2 restores. Use iFaith to build signed 6.1.2 ipsw and do itunes shift+restore while device is in ireb pwned dfu mode.
