I ran Greenpois0n on my iPhone4 and it restarted and showed the skull startup screen. However the green icon thats supposed to be on the springboard is not there to run. I followed the steps and it all seemed to run successfully except for that portion.

Yeah what he said. reboot sometimes puts it on there also. Other wise, run redsnow as Skelster said and put cydia on there that way. Of course you will need to dl the iOS 4.2.1 file for the iphone 4 to run redsnow.

Good Luck!
