How to fix some mysterious problems.

my 3G iPad was jailbroken on 4.2.1 using redsn0w. I tried to run greenpois0n rc6 without restoring and immediately greenpois0n crashed, iPad got stuck in restore mode, and my macbook stopped responding to keyboard/trackpad input. Anyway, I've rebooted, am restoring to 4.2.1 and will run greenpois0n immediately, but has anyone else had this problem? Scared the crap out of me.

Running greenpoison using sudo fixed it. Really weird that it would disable the trackpad and built-in keyboard, though.

What the hell is this "Loader" business? Why not just install cydia and shut up?

Yeesh. Problem solved.

Seem to be alot of issues being reported regarding rc6, I've jailbroken both my ipads, admittedly without the use of Redsn0w beforehand and with an earlier version of GP, but never has any issues.I hope it goes well for you after the restore.

Same issue after the restore. Trying it using sudo this time.
