How to fix some mysterious problems.

I followed all of the steps using Green Poison's software to try and Jailbreak the iphone 4 Verizon OS Version 4.2.6.

I get as far as completeing the sleep/home button sequence instructed by Green Poison and the software telling me to click on the jailbreak button in the software. The software begins some activity, the iphone screen turns white and remains white. The code that I am supposed to see on the screen never shows up and of course the jailbreak is never completed.

I am using Windows XP Pro SP 3. I have tried being a default user as well as the administrator on the PC as well as turning off my firewall/antivirus software. Itunes is up to date. Nothing gets me past the stuck white screen.

Thoughts or ideas?

did you make sure you werent holding the home button the whole time? cuz that might be the problem if not than try this restore your iphone on itunes than delete GP of your computer than re-download GP. GP RC6 did not work for me so download GP RC5 than run RC6 over RC5

if you cant find a download for RC5 than just try RC6 which you can find on green posi0ns official site

uhh this may sound dumb but you held the home button the entire time after it said to release the sleep button right?

I have a similar situation, I'm running W7 64b and I want to JB an Iphone 4 4.2.6 and Itunes, I have downloaded GP RC6 and after following all steps, GP states jailbreaking but nothing happens on the iphone and it turns on automatically, and GP says try again, I have tried changing USB ports, having iTunes open or closed, turning my FW on and off but nothing seems to be the answer, am I missing something?

Try to run it in Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode and in administrator mode.
