I know that you can't with a tethered jailbreak but I would like to know if this is possible(already untethered), I just want it for the new animated boot logo.

*Update: Tried it, didn't work, so as the readme says, don't try it. I was expecting it not to work anyways, made a backup, so restoring...

Directly from the greenpois0n readme: "if your device is jailbroken with iPhone Dev Team's Monte, please restore to fresh 4.2.1. first"

i used gp over my redsn0w tethered iPad and it works.

I think i came arcoss a tweet when the muscleman talking about how gp didn't interfere with rs and vice versa

I didn't get the too (not that I care too much). I don't know wether this is a bug or a normal behaviour, because of Cydia already being there.

@MuscleNerd MuscleNerd @pod2g (but those with tethered redsn0w JB can just go ahead and run GP over it, since they don't interact in that setup)

You can run GP over tethered redsn0w. You CANT run GP onver untethered monte

It is if it's tethered but the Redsn0w Untethered Jailbreak Monte? NO! You must restore. D:
