Yes, yet another topic about this error: "AppleBCMWLAN:handleOKitbusywatchdogTimeout(): Error, no successful firmware download after 60000ms!! Giving up..."

The answers I found so far are: - make sure you're connected to the internet - turn off your firewall - try it on another pc if it doesn't work - try it multiple times until it works - run greenpois0n.exe as administrator

Well... I tried it more than 30 times, on three different pc's, with firewalls turned off and as administrator, without any success. I even tried it using a VPN connection.

I haven't been able to use my iPhone for over a week now. Is there anybody who knows a solution to this?

Have you tried one of the other jailbreak methods (RedSn0w, PwnageTool, or Sn0wbreeze)?

The "60000ms" error tends to occur when the servers are overloaded, you are firewalled, or there is some other error with your internet connection.

Make sure you have no firewalls enabled, you are running on as unfettered an internet connection as possible (i.e. not at work), and just try again.

Awh.. too bad I didn't know there are other tools too that can jailbreak 4.2.1. I actually thought greenpois0n was the only one. I brought it to this shop now. They said they could do it for me. Hope it works.

Hi. I'm having this problem too, but my internet connection is very limited (15kb/s, yes I live out in no where). Is there anyway I go around this? Is it trying to download the ipsw file? Since I have the ipsw, can I use that file to speed things up?

Since you already have your ipsw, your best bet is to use Sn0wbreeze. Once you have it (it's about 15MB I believe) you won't need to download anything else.
