How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm running v.4.2.1 (8C148) on my iPod Touch. I have tried to jailbreak with Greenpois0n 3 or 4 times now.

I thought I have successfully done this twice I clicked on the Jailbreak button on Greenpois0n and it went thru with the green line going across the GUI ...and on my iPod, I could see the white screen then the verbose text scrolling down the screen. When it finished, there was a white skull that replaced the white Apple that you normally see when rebooting the iPod Touch. It would never do anything past the skull. I ended up having to reboot it myself. When I did, I would have to connect it to my PC for it to continue booting up (like you have to do sometimes when it have to connect it to a computer in order for it to get past the white Apple screen). After it would finally finish booting, I could not find the green icon anywhere. I Googled that problem and found that I should install iPhone Browser or iFunBox to see in the OS of the iPod Touch, which I did. iFunBox said that my iPod Touch is still jailed. =/

Aha. Nevermind. I tried it once more...and then just let it sit frozen for about 5-10 minutes and it rebooted. I can now see the green Loader icon.

BTW, it's not clear if you are supposed to keep holding in the Home key until the whole process finishes.
