This is now the second time trying it, getting to DFU is easy, it shows the verboose boot screen and stops at "AppleBCMWLAN::handleIOKitBusyWatchdogTimeout(): Error, no successful firmware download after 60000 ms!! Giving up..." for about 5 mins then continues and reboots, when its rebooted its still the same, no loader no greenpois0n boot logo, its not jailbreaking it.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 w/UAC off Device: iPhone 3Gs 16GB iOS 4.2.1 (fresh) new iboot

Odd error you will probably need to restore and jailbreak then sync everything back

Apparently it wasn't that, you need to set up your wifi connecting in iOS before starting the jailbreak. For some reason it won't work when just on 3G. I did a fresh update/restore so all settings were default (no wifi setup).
