Hmm make sure to turn off iTunes while do this process. If it fails then try to jailbreak again. If it still doesn't work then restore and jailbreak.

Make sure you have a good, non-proxied internet connection on the computer you're running GP on.

Make sure you have the latest iTunes installed.

Delete the 2 payload files from the previous GP attempt. They'll be in the folder GP is in, named iBSS.nXXap & kernelcache.release.nXX.

Run GP again.

If you unzip it to another folder, it will create the files there. If you're running it from inside the zip, the files get put in whatever TEMP is set to. In Windows that's usually c://windows//temp or c://windows//system//temp.

what does fresh restore mean

Start with a stock 4.2.1 firmware restore, you can backup first and then get everything back after GP (hopefully) works.
