Okay, just make sure you're doing the following on Windows:

  1. iTunes must be installed, it provides the drivers to communicate with an iPhone in DFU mode.
  2. You must be in DFU mode. (Black screen, no "Connect to iTunes" image)
  3. You must run greenpois0n in Windows XP SP3 Compatability Mode
  4. You must run greenpois0n as Administrator
  5. You need to have an active internet connection
  6. Temporarily disable any antivirus or firewalls running on your machine.
