How to fix some mysterious problems.

  • Connecting your iDevice obviously
  • Make sure you have iTunes 10.1.2
  • Make sure that you have a fresh restore. (No apps/music/videos)
  • Run greenpois0n with Windows XP SP3 and administrator
  • Turn off your iDevice because the countdown won't give you enough time to do so.
  • When it is jailbreaking make sure to have iTunes turned off. (Check task manager just in case)
  • A small cup of tea 'cause it will take a while :D

I don't think I'm missing anything am I?

"Make sure that you have a fresh restore. (No apps/music/videos)"

is it really necessary to have a fresh restore? I'm on 4.2.1, with loads of apps/music/videos. Have not used redsn0w or whatever: it's still in an unjaibroken state. Do I need to remove everything before I proceed?

you can keep the apps/music/videos after you have done the jailbreak. You can just resync everything after.
