Sorry man not sure what you would do. If you don't already have step by step directions here's a great guide.

Ignition Cylinder removal and disassembly

Doesn't address how to proceed if you can't turn the key in the ignition tho...

I'm sure you've already tried this... But....

Try turning the wheel left to right super aggressively as you try to turn the key. Maybe it's stuck against the steering wheel lock.

I've gotta do that to get the key to turn in my company car.

^^UPDATE: If your key is just completely stuck and won't turn for you to unlock the cylinder with the pin/Allen key... Just keep playing with the key and steering wheel (if locked) at the same time trying to get it to turn to "on position" where you can then proceed with the Ignition Cylinder Replacement process.

careful not to force the shit out of it so you don't break anything, gentle force twisting/turning will do.
