    Just been through the same process, I eventually restored from a work computer no problems, but now I'm nervous about using iTunes at home in case it extracts the operating software again and puts me back to square one.

    @niclasua,

    Hold power and home for about 20-30 to put it into DFU Mode. Then restore it.

    I was getting an error code restoring mine, so you might want to check for updates because then next day I tried it restored fine.
