So I installed greenpois0n for iOS 4.2.1, went through all of the steps, got to the part with the command prompt, where an interesting error occurred:

Unable to find gBdevList

Unable to find fs_mount

Unable to find fs_unmount

Unable to find fs_load _file

Greenpois0n initialized"

At this point, the installation proceeds normally and the jailbreak software is apparently successful. However, when the iPod reboots, the logo (modified for greenpois0n) appears, and yet, when the device turns on completely, there is no change to the OS (can't find loader app, even when searching for it), and everything looks exactly the same as before. However, whenever I boot the iPod, the logo still appears. This is unusual, it suggests that the iPod has been jailbroken but the actual software was not installed. What could cause this? I have tried the download a few times and it hasn't worked at all.

Here is the site that I downloaded from: http://www.redmondpie.com/download-ios-4.2.1-iphone-4-3gs-3g-ipad-ipod-touch-final-version/

Use redsn0w 9.14b2 to jailbreak/install cydia. If it fails, you need to restore first before using redsn0w.
