My Ipad 32gb wifi+3g running 4.2.1, itunes 10.1.2.

Itunes is closed after I connect my Ipad. I then proceed to put it into DFU mode. GP recognizes this and I am allowed to continued with the JB. However; my computer makes the connection noise like I have just connected my Ipad. Several minutes later GP gives me a jailbreak failed, try again error. I have tried this several times. Even waiting until Itunes gives me the "ipad is in DFU mode and needs to be restored" but it is still not allowing me to JB. My iPad just reboots and brings me back to my home screen like nothing has happened.

Any help would be great.

When you enter DFU mode, keep holding the home button, then jailbreak, and continue holding home button until you see scrolling text. Use TinyUmbrella to kick out of recovery if necessary.

Also make sure you're using the latest greenpois0n (RC5 B4).

This is what did it. I finally restarted my computer and tried it again. I still got to just a white screen the first time, the text never came up. So I held sleep until it rebooted again. The second time (while continuing to hold the home button) it made it through the white screen and was successful. Thank you!
