Iphone 3gs i think it's 4.2.1 or 4.3.1 been trying everything to get past it. redsnow, greenpoison, pwnagetool, nothing works :-( I can get it into DFU mode. I've got it all the way up to the skeleton face for greenpoison, but it just stays there, NOT loading. Then it eventually shuts off and cuts back on on it's own. then its back at recovery mode :-(
I just need to get into my phone so that I can bluetooth all my info to my next phone, or back it up or something. I have close to 2000 pics, 1000 contacts, and hundreds of important notes. Please Please Please help. thanx

Well, to get into Recovery you most likely had it plugged in to your PC/Mac, and iTunes automatically backups all your stuff when you sync.
It's natural to sync (at least for me) when I'm going to do some jailbreaking-related task on my computer, so if you have this same habit, your data is all safe. If you end up restoring your device will prompt you to "Restore data from Backup". Just agree and you will have all your data back how it was on your device.
To get out of Recovery Mode I'd try doing what @venusanann said, as it's certainly better just to get out of that than restoring.
