Well, both greenpois0n and redsn0w are jailbreak tools, not unlocking tools.

Jailbreaking refers to installing Cydia and other non-Apple apps, unlocking refers to using your phone with a different mobile provider than the one you originally bought your phone from. Which do you mean?

If you really do mean unlocking, then redsn0w CAN do this, but only if you upgrade to the 06.15.00 baseband, which has a handful of risks associated with it. You can find a how-to guide to do this here:
