Jailbreaking process getting stuck.
I've got an iPhone 4 with 4.2.1 and I can get all the way to the step where you need to install Cydia. I put the phone in DFU mode and then the redsn0w program gets stuck at the, "Exploiting Limra1n" step. I've tried it about half a dozen times and it keeps getting stuck there. The blue status bar goes to 100% but the "Finish" button never highlights (so I can't click it to continue).
Has anyone encountered this? If so, what did you do? Any ideas from the seasoned JB'ers?

i had this very same thing happen to me. turns out i was not putting the device into DFU mode correctly. if you are seeing the Apple logo at all during this time then it's not done properly
instead of waiting for the next step 3...2...1... and then release the power button you have to almost anticipate it. keep trying you're almost there
edit: also, you do not have to wait for the device to turn off again when trying. just repeat everything as if it is turned off
hope this helps

PM Georgia she also couldn't get it after 8 or 9 tries just kidding wit ya
Well, I busted out my Apple usb cable (was using a Griffin one) and it got further this time but RIGHT as the phone's screen said, "Dowloading Jailbreak", the freakin' Redsn0w program crashed!! Uhhhggg... Imma try this ONE more time...
Any other advice? I wish this was as easy as the last time I did this. Went to a website link and BAM! Jailbroken! I miss that. Why the heck can't this be just as easy?!?!
