Hey guys. I'm using an iPhone 4 (4.2.1 [8C148]). I've followed all the instructions given by the program and it keeps failing? :(

Are you running the programme from your desktop and as administrator?

If you do the 3GS you will need to update it to 4.2.1 first. It does take a while for it to jailbreak. If it is not working try the jailbreak again. Don't forget to extract the Greenpois0n files to the desktop. Run again as administrator.

Do you mean the Apple logo and then the Greenpois0n logo or both on the screen at the same time?! Yes update through itunes but back it up first, you can then set up from your back up once it has updated.

You need to add sources to your Cydia. Go into youtube and have a look how to do it and which the best sources are to add. Tonesfx I find far better than Anyring. You need to download Tonefx to your pc too though.
