Yes, but use RC6.1, the latest, it fixes some issues from earlier builds. Whatever you do, don't update to 4.3 in iTunes, or you'll be stuck there waiting for the jailbreak release.

Greenpois0n just jailbreaks, it doesn't unlock. If you're not unlocked now, you won't be unlocked after running greenpois0n. I don't think that baseband has an unlock yet.

Same situation for me... For now it is impossible to jailbreak 3.10.1 baseband using greenpoison rc5 and rc6.

Please document that fact. It isnt written anywhere...

It doesn't matter your baseband for jailbreaking. In case something goes wrong just hacktivate. the problem is if you want to use ultrasn0w for unlocking. Then you have to check if it supports your baseband.

(If you want/rely on an ubnlock use sn0wbreeze to create a custom IPSW with hacktivation and baseband preservation.)

If jailbreak fails with GP, try this: Get GP RC6.1

Make sure you have a good, non-proxied internet connection on the computer you're running GP on.

Make sure you have the latest iTunes installed.

Delete the 2 payload files from the previous GP attempt. They'll be in the folder GP is in, named iBSS.nXXap & kernelcache.release.nXX.

On a Mac they will be in greenpois0n.app/Contents/MacOS

Run GP again.
