How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have tried the break several times and nothing happens. My Mac locked up on several of the attempts and the phone appear to shut down before I get to the end of the 10 seconds holding both of the buttons. Nothing happens and I have to restart the phone using both buttons again. Nothing is installed and it takes a long time to start the phone.

3G iphone with 4.2.1 and Firmware of 05.15.04

Thanks for the help!

If you are using greenpois0n, it does not work with the iPhone 3G. You need to use redsn0w. I'm assuming that you think that when the screen goes blank, you think the phone shut down, right? If that is the case, it did not shut down. It is in a special recovery mode called "DFU mode" which is necessary for the jailbreak to occur. If it looks like the shut down screen, you are not following the instructions properly to get to DFU mode.

Greenpois0n does not support the iPhone 3G.

Use PwnageTool 4.1.x or Redsn0w 0.9.6 or later.
