I have been trying for hours at this. I have iPhone 3gs, greenpois0n rc5 b2, internet connection, windows 7. I have tried gp and didnt get past gp initialized screen every time, the jailbreak bar ran quickly and said complete but didnt work. Now when I press the jailbreak button nothing happens. Please help

Im assuming 4.2.1 because greenpois0n is for 4.2.1
Are you using a custom .ipsw that doesnt upgrade your baseband?

yes, when it fails (freezes on error: unable to mount user filesystem, then no succesful firmware download for 60k ms) i can just boot tethered by redsn0w and it work like nothing happened, got all my data, settings, music etc. someone mentioned to do an itunes clean restores and when it fails kick out of recovery by tinyumbrella but he added its iphone4 solution only so i dont wanna try and lose all my data..

If was going to suggest restoring it with the custom .ipsw. I dont know if it matters if you restore in DFU mode or not.

i did try with restoring to fresh custom ipsw like 2 days ago with version rc5.1 and rc5.2, but my girlfriend(she owns the iphone) gets mad when she hears that i need to restore it next time so didnt tried on rc5.3 yet but i will have to, it seems. thanks for your help :)
