How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi all,

Just successfully jailbreaked my iPhone 4 running 4.2.1 with greenpois0n RC5_b2 for windows

Just so everyone knows you need to have an active internet connection to run greenpois0n, no your internet tethering on your iDevice will not work as a valid internet source. Make sure any virus scanning software is disabled, allow firewall exceptions for Greenpois0n.exe, also not unholding the home button after you finish getting into DFU mode in Greenpois0ns may help or may not help not 100% sure on that.

Also i was running Greenpois0n on Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit), with run as administrator checked and compatibility mode Windows XP (Service Pack 3) checked.

Hope this helps anyone having problems with "failed :(" error did for me! :D
