Are you running GreenPois0n before you put your device into DFU?

When GP is running, and your device is in DFU, does GP give you a "Jailbreak" button?

((Right click your taskbar, open Taskmanager, Go to Processes tab, Click Description, Close iTunes.exe & iTunesHelper.exe)) Close greenpois0n, delete the files it left on your desktop, and reopen it.

Out of curiousity, are you trying this on a computer with itunes installed? when the device is in DFU mode a new driver needs to be installed for "iPhone in DFU mode", this driver can only be installed when Apple Mobile Device Support (AMDS) is properly installed which is part of the iTunes package.

If iTunes is not installed, then install the latest 10.1.2, if iTunes is installed then you can try to reinstall it following the steps outlined in the Apple support page this is a full and comprehensive resinatllation steps for all items that come with iTunes, note that the elements need to be removed in the oreder they are listed from the control panel, the order is as follows:



3.Apple Software Update

4.Apple Mobile Device Support


6.Apple Application Support

Sounds like you're not getting into DFU mode (or else GP would give you the "Jailbreak" button. Try the method at and see if you have any more luck that way.

Fail! (Enough said) Reboot your computer in Safe Mode (With Networking) and Download, Install, and Update Malwarebytes from Once your scan is done, remove anything infectious and restart the computer, then download and install iTunes, restart again. And rejailbreak. (Make sure iTunes is closed, and iTunesHelper)
