How to fix some mysterious problems.

I just have jailbroken my iphone 3GS IOS 4.2.1 (no simcard included) with greenpoisn 1.0 RC6 as I thought seccessfully. The readme my says "7. start the Loader application (green icon on the SpringBoard), and follow instructions to install Cydia". After the reaboot I don't have a green icon. My intention to jailbreak is to use it with my own simcard.

Just run Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 over the top of your GP jailbreak and select 'install Cydia' only...

.....and if your intentions are to unlock to use it with your own sim card, then that will depend on your baseband version, if it's 05.15.xx then there is no unlock for that.

I have 05.15.04. So there is no way to use my own sim card?

You will have to use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 and take the ipad baseband update to unlock, go here and read the blog post, as there are some issues with the taking the ipad baseband.

If you have no Loader, you can just run greenpois0n jailbreak again. As an alternative, you can also use redsn0w, as someone mentioned already.
