How to fix some mysterious problems.

I can't get Greenpois0n to work. I have the latest GP, fresh 4.2.1, iPhone 4 in Windows.

First stage works okay but my iPhone is stuck at 'Greenpois0n initialised'

Any suggestions?

Many Thanks.


Greenpois0n needs an internet connection to complete the jailbreak. My University was blocking the connection so after connecting to a VPN (Ipredator) it worked first time!

I have a home computer accessing the internet just fine. My iphone 4 is stuck on" Greenpois0n initialized". What should I do?

@JohnnyRockets if your computer is connected to a router try to connect directly to the modem then try to jailbreak again. If you have an internet connection then something else might be blocking greenpois0n.
