Can you power it off and if so does it just continue recovery mode? Maybe let the battery run down and not charge it for 24 hours then charge it and see if it allows you to restore.

Try putting your iPod Touch in DFU mode (device firmware upgrade) to see if that brings it back to life. Follow these WiKi How instructions: LINK

Let us know if it works for you.

Maybe let the battery die and stay uncharged for 24 hours before you recharge it.
