Ok so I've downloaded the newest version of Greenpois0n for windows, running as administrator, and doing everything the instructions tell me, but can not for the life of me get into DFU mode with the home+sleep button process.

As far as I can tell this is the only way to start the jailbreaking process, so I would really appreciate any help you can give me.

Yep, I've found 10 secs a little long too.

You're starting with the device powered off, right? I think the readme fails to mention that.

yeah its turned off.

More questions (sorry)

1] Do I turn it of THEN connect?, as info varies 2] Does it matter if you connect before opening GP?

Thanks again :)
