Jailbreak Complete in the desktop app doesn't mean much. It just means it sent the right files over, or thought it did. You need to keep holding the home button until you see stuff scrolling down the screen.

If you're on Windows, run it in administrator mode.

If you're on a Mac, put on your desktop, open terminal and type: sudo ~/Desktop/ and hit enter, put in your Mac password, hit enter, and it should work. Keep holding the home button until the text scrolls, it may take some time.
