Hey I am trying to fixed this screwed up iPod...

It is an iPod Touch 2nd gen 8g. I think it is a software problem. When it turns on it just gives me the apple logo known as "The Black Screen of Death". Anyway, I have tried to reset it but keep getting the logo. I think i successfully put it in recovery mode and tried to restore it on iTunes. It did not restore it successfully, however, and I tried it many times. Each time it gave me either the 1604 error message or the 1611 error message. I research the cause of these messages and tried several things including different USB ports, restarting my computer and I even tried to jailbreak it. All of these things failed. Advice? I just want my iPod to work. I am not concerned if all my data is gone.

Did you put it into recovery mode or DFU mode? You want to try DFU mode and then do a restore.

I'm pretty sure I put it in DFU mode actually, but whatever it is in now, It won't come back out.
