I've seen some reports of people who's GreenPois0n failed to install Loader/Cydia trying to use RedSn0w, and having it fail (even with the 4.2.6 firmware download). Can anyone confirm getting this working?

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.

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. Redsn0w didn't.

Well that's good then, it's confirmed that Sn0wbreeze (Win) & Pwnage (Mac) both work for verizon iphone, so those owners maybe shouldn't even bother using GP.

If you look at the timeline of Redsn0w & Verizon iphone4 release, they're about a month apart and Redsn0w has not been updated in that timeframe, or up until now.
