I get it into dfu then the green loading bar goes up and then says jailbreak failed. Quit to try again. What do I do?

Did you try again?

You may need to try a restore in iTunes, then try GreenPois0n after that. Other things that may help include rebooting your computer, using a different USB port, or trying a different computer.

Failing all that, try using Sn0wbreeze instead of GP.

It says it does, what OP should find out is whether it's an MC model or not, if it's old bootrom then Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 will give an untethered jailbreak.

There is honestly no need, Greenpois0n works fine :3

Well when OP posts back he/she should first try your method and report back the findings

Don't you just hate when they take off with their problems solved, and not even have the consideration to leave a thank you, or close the thread?

I've got the same device, Rejailbreaking it as we speak. Just open task manager, go to processes, find iTunesHelper.exe and close it. ((And iTunes.exe....) ((Delete temporary greenpois0n files from your desktop before reruning greenpois0n))
