everytime i try to run greenpoison Rc6 as administrator, it always runs through the process. It attempts to jailbreak the phone, the bar will fill up, then go back to a "working stage", Fill up again and then and then "failed :( ".

Are you sure iTunes is turned off and it's in DFU?

i fixed it, i ran greenpoison on a win machine.

it was in dfu mode, becuase directly after greenpoison would "fail" it would reboot, and iphones dont take 30+ seconds(not mine anyway, and not on a clean ios) to go from off to first sign of a reboot.

internet connection is solid, and fast. idk i guess it was my greenpoison on the mac. DUNNO
