I'll be looking forward to any help i can get

    You will most likely have to put your iPod into DFU mode before connecting to iTunes. You will lose the jailbreak - you can't update without losing it.

    Not to be condescending, but what is dfu mode to you? What does your screen look like when you are in dfu mode?

    Also are you in latest iTunes?
    Can you connect to the store in iTunes?

    Have you ever had tiny umbrella? Or
    Modified your hosts file on that computer?

    Do you have another access to another computer that has never had any jailbreak software on it? Can you try that one to update it?

    no i meant you might have modified your hosts, and the other computer that you tried today have you ever had any type of jailbreak before??
    itunes with unmodified hosts should with no problem ever, completely restore an iDevice in 5-10 minutes

    Try deleting Tiny Umbrella and try again. I had that problem once, and as soon as TU was gone, it restored perfectly.
