Hi using both my ipad and my iphone greenpois0n does not work. I Put them into DFU mode and then not only does the jailbreak say it failed, but my computer also says that the USB Device has malfunctioned and cannot be recognized. Any help?

Do you have your iDevices plugged in through a hub?

The USB failure seems to be what's causing the jailbreak to fail.

Retether your iphone and ipad. Or you can restart the computer.
