How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm trying to jailbreak my iPhone 3G but for some reason can't. My iOS version é 4.2; I go through the DFU process on Greenpois0n but I keep getting the message "Try again?" and can't turn on iPhone - have to fix it with iTunes.

Where I'm going wrong? Can someone help me?

the iPhone 3g is not supported by Greenpois0n. TO jailbreak a 3g, use redsnow.

Heres a link with direct downloads of the files you need as well as a link to a tutorial.

Good Luck!
