It depends. Are you using SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) in Redsn0w? If you are, I think greenpois0n might break your activation (maybe, I don't know for sure.) The way to get around activation is currently: (1) Redsn0w hacktivation (2) greenpois0n (3) install SAM and SAMPrefs from (4) use redsn0w to "Deactivate" the phone and rely on SAM for improved battery life through a normal activation.

Doing things in any other order may give you problems.
