tnx to @yasir777 this is how to fix for those who hv this problem ''1) Get latest itunes
2) get iPod touch's firmware 5.0.1 ! 5.0 will not work ! USE 5.0.1 !
3) connect ipod and shift + restore ! Dont use any other software like tinyumbrella etc ...
When ur ipod is updating ! It will still have blank screen , but after it restarts (when update on itunes finish) it will automatically power on and wont take u to dfu mode! it will boot up ! Now you did it !
If u get error 3194 , dont use tinyumb... Just get the original host file from internet and rename the old one as hosts.old and then place the downloaded one there ! (in directory c:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/
If u get error 2005 or 200someting ... Download irebr4 ! and select ipod touch 4g ... then it will be in pwned dfu ! NOW update from itunes and you'll have no errors !

Hi, im having the same problem as you are right now. After i downgraded my ipod touch 4g on ios 4.3.5 to ios 4.3.3 my ipod never opened since the restore. I tried (holding the home + power button for 10 seconds) but it never worked and itunes don't let me update my idevice to ios 5, Error 3194 keeps popping up. I have the black screen on my ipod touch 4g, would it work if i try restoring to ios 5.0.1 firmware ?
CAN ANY1 HELP ME PLZ ???????
