Running greenpois0n RC5 B2 in Windows 7...have already done this for 2 ipods and 2 iPhones however on my ipad 3G, once I am done with greenpois0n I get the Loader but when I tap on it, it just blinks and nothing happens...

That means it was a bad jailbreak. You can try again by rejailbreaking but I wouldn't suggest that. You "should" restore and rejailbreak.

ok trying again, althought there is an error starting with YAFTL_OPEN (L:2988) error when the ipad is in black screen and all the text is being displayed

Maybe the RC5 B4 is not yet ready for an ipad 3G?

Could be from server load, though that's easing now. Try again in a little while, and if it still doesn't work I'd just try a restore and re-jailbreak.
