greenpoison or redsnow?
Do these jailbreak devs take turns with the latest jb's? I've used greenpoison in the past to jb, but now i see redsnow (i love these names) has the latest one. Is there any difference between the two? Should i wait until greenpoison comes out with their version of jb 4.3.1? Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.

Yeah like Alli said they take turns and over time there have been different ones that don't release a tool until the next version of the OS. This could be because there is already a tool who knows. I personally prefer to use pwnage tool but that is a Mac only tool. I find I've had way less problems than some I've seen over the years. There has been a pwnage tool for most all of the firmware versions. I've been using BiteSMS since yesterday but Lockinfo I never use it on my phone anyway.

If you're on a Mac and not using pwnage tool you're missing out =•P The only difference is with pwnage tool you reload your firmware so you will need to reinstall your JB apps which might be a pain. If you're interested head over to iClarified and look in the tutorials, iPhone, Jailbreak for the Pwnage Tool imstuctions.

See, this is what i'm talking about. With greenpoisOn, it's like one stop shopping. Download greenpoisOn, plug in iPhone(after upgrading to new ios), and just follow the prompts. Someone should write a book called "Jailbreaking for Dummies". I'd buy that in a New York minute!!!

LOL I don't want to sound harsh but the difference is always the user. I've used pwnage tool to JB for 4 years now and I have had only 1 problem in all that time. I have had less problems than people with vanilla iPhones that I have seen in the forums. There are just so many variables even GP I have seen tons of questions for it when people had problems but like you said you've used it many times with no problems. Hmmm maybe I'll have to write such a book lol

I would like to ask is it ok for me to use RedSnow to jb my iphone 4? Currently my device is jb using the greenpoison. Is there anything that I need to be aware of to avoid bricking?
If I were to jailbreak it, should I just follow all steps listed in iclarified How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 4 Using RedSn0w (Windows) [4.3.1]
Will it be fine?
Thank you in advance,
As you can tell by the earlier posts in this forum, the jailbreak for iPhone is being handled by redsnOw. If you follow the directions, it should work out fine. I personally believe that greenpoison is a little bit more user friendly than redsnOw(less steps involved). That being said, i think that redsnOw should be good if you are a "computer person". I'm still learning about my Mac, and it's a work in progress.

If you're doing redsnow you have to upgrade the firmware on the phone first. You can't just upgrade the redsn0w software. So if you're unlocked then do not do it you'll need to upgrade via Pwnage tool or Sn0wbreeze. If you're not unlocked then hook up your phone and hit upgrade then once the firmware has been upgraded run the JB tool.
