To jb with gp windows you just open up gp. Follow the instructions that are given to you on screen and ta da! You're jailbroken. I would suggest that you run as admin and run with Windows XP SP3 compatibility.

Download GP RC5. You may need to extract files first. READ ME should be a file that will ask you what application to use to open up. Open with Note Pad, Follow ALL directions, and the jailbreak should be a breeze.

First of all, make sure you have the latest iTunes version installed. Then, if you have Windows 7/Vista, just run it as Administrator & Windows XP compatibility mode and then follow instructions on screen.

That's it, enjoy.
