[Solved] How to Get iPod Touch Out of Recovery Mode

user reviewWhen I was updating my iPod touch to iOS 10, it went into iPod recovery mode. While connecting my iPod to my computer, I do hear the alert from the iPod to notice me a device is connected. And then iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode and needs to be restored. But it won’t let me reset iPod touch without updating first. I let it update, but it still doesn’t reset my iPod afterward. I’ve tried multiple times but it did the same thing. Is there anyone knows how to fix iPod stuck in recovery mode?"
