Make sure you running greenpois0n in windows XP compatibility mode and as administrator. This should fix those issues.

my friend DFU mode and connect it to itunes and fresh 4.2.1 , then Jailbreak again .

Im not sure if the JB from tethered to untetherd will work 100% everytime , it's different codes and both could make Systems crash & conflicts :)

Hope this help ...
