Are you on a Mac or PC?
You're using GreenPois0n I assume? If you're on a PC have to set GreenPois0n to use XP Compatibility Mode?
Note: I posted this in your other thread, but please don't repost in different forums. It will get moved if in the wrong forum.
i am using windows, running xp media edition, and yes trying to use greenpois0n, what im really after is to unlock the personal hotspot, is there anouther way to do it? i posted twice cause i didnt think the other place was the correct place to post it, tnx for any help u can give

I would advise you to download the Greenpois0n(GP) file again. If you're doing this at home and your computer is connected by Wifi I would say connect you computer directly to the cable coming out of your modem or a cable out of your router for the process. I had problems at work and my thought was it had something to do with the firewall.
and yes i am updated to the most current version of itumes, do you think updating to 4.3.0 might help? and once greenpois0n is downloaded do i even need an internet connection to do this or do you think a possible firewall is messing up the download? is there anouther way to unlock the personal hotspot or untether it i guess

Updating to 4.3?? if you mean firmware although I didn't think it was released then no don't upgrade to 4.3 I do believe you will need an internet connection while you're doing it and try it from home you might find like me it was no problem at all from home.

Do you have a computer? are you on Windows or a Mac? if Windows PM me I could make you custom firmware in pwnage tool so that you could restore your phone. This will wipe your phone so make sure you back it up before you do it so you can restore. I don't answer my PMs fast so it might be a bit. You can also add me on Twitter and ask me there too.

Add me on twitter then, no your phone will be JBen on 4.2 after you do a restore with the custom firmware I will make for you. All you will have to do is put your phone into recovery mode and restore with the custom firmware I send you. It will wipe yoir phone because it's reloading the firmware so do a backup before.
