How to fix some mysterious problems.

so i have no problem getting into dfu mode. i did a full dfu restore on my iphone after 20 tries without it. the only time GP did anything besides go straight to the end of the status bar and fail is when the phone went into itunes restore mode by accident one of the times. then it went through the jailbreak process and completed it, but it stayed on the itunes restore screen and obviously didnt work.

ive held down the home button, and im on xp so i shouldnt have any admin or compatibility issues. before the itunes recovery bit it only places the iBSS file on the desktop. during the itunes bit it also placed the kernel file, but still no luck.

i think i've done everything there is to do, any ideas?
