You can jailbreak but you won't be able to install Cydia via the Loader app, you can use Redsnow to install Cydia over the top though

Correct, so you'll want to download redsn0w at the start.

I believe it needs a Internet connection to download some files. Not 100% sure though

I'd recommend waiting, as hard as it sounds... Or you could Jailbreak, then go without any of cydia's features for three weeks.... Sounds like your inbetween a rock and a hard place.

GreenPois0n requires an internet connection to download certain files it needs (iBSS files) so you will not be able to use it without an internet connection. Sorry

Yah i noticed this as GreenPois0n kills USB devices connected to the laptop !!!

my DSL Adapter is a USB Stick and when GP killed the USB port i was disconnected from the Internet and YES GP failed to complete, at that moment i knew that it does require internet.

Restarted, connected my USB Internet Stick, ran GP again and voila, everything is ok this time.
