How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have to admit I am a novice at this but I followed the instructions on greenposion and get to the last 15 second section and when I get down to a four count I hear a click and then it counts down to 1 and asks me to try again. This tends to happen on both my laptop and desk top. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong here. My 3G has never been jail broken before and is running on the 4.2.1 update.I have gone so far as to make sure that the current version of XP is selected. I have Windows 7 on both units as well and selected as administrator. Where am I going wrong. Thanks in advance!

3G won't be detected on DFU. gp doesn't work with it.

Greenpois0n won't work on the 3G, as the included readme states. You could use Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze though.

Sn0wBreeze, seeing as how its Windows 7. ((Don't hactivate if your using At&t))

Redsn0w is also for Windows

the current version is supposed to work with my 3rd gen iPod Touch, based on the included readme, but it does not work for me either
