Mac must be online to do jailbreak?
I think I figured out a part of my problem. I ended up at How To Jailbreak iPhone 4 On iOS 4.2.1 | The Iphone Spot (sorry, cant post url as this is my first post here and it won't let me post link) which had this comment:
Run that new Greenpoisi0n with root access like this:
1: Open terminal, type sudo(space)
2: Then go to a finder window and goto the location you downloaded Greenpoisi0n RC5_2, open as "Show package contents" then goto MacOS, and drag "greenpoisi0n" into terminal.
3: make sure theres not an extra space after the file is placed into terminal, if there is; a simple backspace will take care of it.
4: Hit enter.
You are now running Greenpoisi0n in root. ...
When I did this I was able to watch the process details in the terminal window which stalled when it came to this line "Preparing to fetch DFU image from Apple's servers"
It could not fetch that because my Mac is not online! I live in a remote location and use the iPad to get online via MIWI! So, at least for me, my failed install might be related to this step. Though, I'm not sure why I was getting a completed message in my earlier attempts. I think it is assumed that everyone doing this jailbreak are online but it is not state as a requirement.

Ok so I got Greenpois0n to jailbreak. Restarted my iPhone, loader app was there, startd loader and it goes "loading sources" then I get an error that I must make sure I'm connected to the internet which I know for sure my connection is working properly

Damn didn't work for me, I was on a tethered JB on my iPad. I got it as soon as I heard about it. I tried to JB and it didn't work just got stuck. So I put it into DFU and restored to OEM firmware. I tried again and no dice it froze my MBP, I had to hard boot. I tried once more without my virtual Windows running and the same thing it just sits there for 10 or 15 minutes and then crashes. Oh well I'll wait until next week or 4.3

I have the "Loader" and I have tried "redsn0w", it finishes, but no Cydia. Am I suppose to have the "Greenpois0n" icon on the iPad (4.2.1) while booting?? When I tap "Loader", it says loading, however I don't see any wifi activity on the status bar like I usually do when something is trying to download, like it's not even trying to connect to anything.
