Apparently redsn0w hasn't been updated to support 4.2.6 yet. However, Sn0wbreeze was updated 2 days ago to support the Verizon iPhone on 4.2.6, so you should give it a try. http://ih8sn0w.com/index.php/welcome.snow

Note that the description still says for 4.2.1, but it has been updated, I downloaded 4.2.6 ipsw to test it and Sn0wbreeze recognized it.

Install Cydia with redsn0w instead.

I have the same problem. I installed redsnow and downloaded the 4.2.6 ipsw file but redsnow is saying it cant recognize the ipsw.

I also have this problem, i jailbroke my iphone 4 that came with 4.2.6 firmware, the loader app loads up but when it tries to load the sources nothing comes up. redsn0w also doesn't work with 4.2.6 firmware as it can't recognize the ipsw.

Redsn0w probably doesn't support verizon iphone, if it's not recognising the ipsw then that has to be why, the only tools I can see that claim to jailbreak the verizon iphone are GP & Pwnage, (dont know about Sn0wbreeze)

For installing Cydia, see http://jailbreakqa.com/questions/126/how-do-i-install-cydia-if-greenpois0n-failed-to-install-iloader

If you need your IPSW for 4.2.6, see http://jailbreakqa.com/questions/12797/where-can-i-download-firmware-for-my-iphone

Seen a couple of reports that the RedSn0w method may not work for 4.2.6... :(
