"Failed to get AppleS5L8920XARM7M" means you're on 4.3/4.3.1. There is no untethered jailbreak yet, and GP won't work.

Hold home+power until you see the Apple logo.

It should. What iOS version are you running? At what point did GP fail?

Just hold power and home for 10 seconds, then hold power to boot up. If you're lucky, and considering the situation, you're most likely unlucky, you'll have the 4.2.1 SHSH hashes and you could downgrade from there and untether yourself. Depending on what 3GS you have (and I could find out if you get me the 3rd, 4th, and 5th digit of your model number), you may be able to untether yourself on 4.3.1
