Try disabling your firewall and antivirus temporarily. If that still doesn't work, try downloading the latest Greenpois0n from their website.

I have successfully jailbreaked my idevices using Greenpois0n RC5 b4. If you're using windows, make sure that you've disabled your firewall and anti-virus (temporarily), closed iTunes, ran GP as an administrator, connected your idevice, and powered it down before clicking on jailbreak. Follow the onscreen instructions to the letter, here, timing is EVERYTHING. If it says "Jailbreak failed" or something to that effect, exit and start GP again, wait for your device to boot up then power it down and try again. No need to restore.

After you have jailbreaked with GP, rebooted, and Cydia is having a tough time being downloaded and you end up with an error message telling you that you're running out of space, relax, just open "loader" and try installing Cydia again. I think this is because Cydia's servers are receiving too much download requests, just keep on trying. Lastly, after you have downloaded Cydia, reboot.

Cheers! :-)

Your explanation is really helpful but i have the same problem and tried everything maybe more than you suggested. The problem is not the failure of the jailbreak, it is something related to windows because it doesnt allow the rc5 to continue the jailbreak. Windows closes the program by saying a problem occurred.
