That's the now-classic "I'm on iOS 4.3.1 and trying to use greenpois0n" error. Greenpois0n doesn't work on 4.3.1. Use redsn0w 0.9.6rc9 (Windows) (Mac). You'll need a copy of your 4.3.1 firmware. If you don't have it, get it here. Make sure you have the latest iTunes installed on the computer you're using to jailbreak.

If you're on Windows, don't run redsn0w from inside the zip file. Extract the redsn0w.exe to your desktop first. Then right-click the redsn0w.exe on your desktop, choose "Properties," go to the "Compatibility" tab, and under "Compatibility mode" tick the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" box and choose Windows XP, with the highest Service Pack listed. At the bottom of the dialog tick the box under "Privilege Level" to "Run this program as an administrator." Click OK.

Now double-click the redsn0w.exe on your desktop and follow the instructions.
