You said its stuck at the pineapple bootlogo? What did you use to jailbreak? Pwnage tool? I dont believe its been updated to 5.1 yet.

Umm the latest version and I use Windows. I thought i should restore but now its stuck in DFU mode and itunes is taking ages on the preparing ipod for restore bar

Ok yea your best to try a restore. Cancel the restore and Put the device in recovery mode (not DFU). Since your restoring to a stock 5.1 you dont need DFU. And see if this does the trick.

To put the device into recovery mode just pop it out of DFU by holding both the power and home button at the same time for about 8 seconds then continue holding down the home button till you see the itunes logo and usb
