Ok, I will try and be as descriptive as possible.

I am attempting to use greenpois0n on an itouch 3G, 32GB. It has been restored and updated to 4.2.1. I follow the steps listed through greenpois0n to the tee, and as soon as the ipod reaches the white screen (right before the text is supposed to show up), the ipod restarts and greenpois0n comes up as "Jailbreak Failed :( ) I have tried doing the reboot on the ipod via, holding down both the sleep and home buttons through the entire reboot process, nothing. I have tried restoring about 3 times now, nothing. I'm not sure I understand what's going on. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try to turn off anything iTunes related. Just in case. If it still doesn't work then restart your computer and try again. If that still doesn't work then I'm out of ideas.
