At the beginning of the application when it is instructing me how long to hold down sleep and home buttons in order to prepare the iphone(3g, 4.2.1) for jailbreaking. However i have tried numerous times and the application still states 'waiting for DFU' and am told to try again. Help?

GP does not support iphone 3G, use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 (Mac & Windows) for an untethered jailbreak, or latest PwnageTool (Mac only), can probably use Sn0wbreeze but I have no experience of it.

Not sure what your unlock needs are but the 5.15.xx baseband is not unlockable, have to take ipad baseband if you want rely on ultrasn0w for service.
