How to fix some mysterious problems.

I finished installing greenpois0n, installed Cydia, installed the upgrades, and my iPod still isn't jailbroken. I have iPod 3rd generation, version 4.2.1. My friend jailbroke his iPod and the screen has a picture on his background, while mine is still a simple black. I tried making a photo my wallpaper, but it made it for the startup screen or whatever (the background is still black). What do I do?

What you do is you go to Cydia and Download SBSettings(free) and MyOS(not free). To Get MyOS for Free: Go To Cydia Manage Sources Edit Add Http:// and add source and if you receive any message tap Add anyway then look for MyOS and Install it... Go TO Settings>Scroll Down until you find MyOS and turn On HomeScreen Wallpaper..then restart your device..

AFter the device done booting should see a "Picture" on your wallpaper :)
