More details would be helpful, but I think my answer below pretty much covers it.

Use redsn0w. 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. If you're running Windows XP, skip to the last paragraph.

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.

It should look like this: alt text

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

In Windows XP, click redsn0w.exe once to select it, and then hold down the Shift key and right-click redsn0w.exe. You'll see a contextual menu from which you can select Run as... and then choose an administrator account.
