What's the difference between restoring an iTouch while it's in DFU mode vs NOT having it in DFU mode? While in DFU mode iTunes forces you to restore where's if your NOT in DFU mode you can still click on the RESTORE button in iTunes and restore just the same...
So what's the difference?

Difference is sometimes restoring in recovery mode when your having issues just wont work when DFU mode will. Also, programs like pwnage require it.
Now, what exactly is the difference you say.....
DFU mode DOESNT boot up the OS and so doesnt communicate as much to the computer (Itunes). Recovery mode is a much more booted state and can cause problems doing stuff.
