    Greenp0ison requires that you do it in DFU mode.....make sure to start with the phone plugged in and OFF while doing what it says in DFU mode.....hope it helps.

    i had issues with greenpois0n seeing it was in dfu mode. I tried limera1in and got it on the first shot. Not sure why greenpois0n didn't see my phone was in DFU.

    Try to restore your iPhone first. Wait for activation. Then turn your phone completely off.

    Open greenpois0n and get it started and follow the on screen instructions. In order to get your phone into DFU mode hold your home and power buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds at which point you release your power button and continue to hold the home button until greenpois0n recognizes it. At that point greenpois0n should take over and do it's magic....

    Got new phone, have tried everything, and I know how to get an iPhone into DFU mode, not to insult anyone out there, usually when it comes to tech stuff people come to me, so for me to have a problem is just rare and just my luck ! lol

    You mentioned being on a Mac. Do you have access to a PC on which you can try? The Mac client is newer and could be buggy. But I haven't tried it myself.
    You could also try a different sync cable, if you have or can get one.
    And are you on the latest version of iTunes?

    I would recommend using limera1n, i have experienced quite a few troubles with greenpois0n and limerain is easier to follow in terms of instructions.

    I had to give up and do a lot of things on a PC lately that should have worked on a Mac. You would think that it would be the other way around.

    It seems this jailbreak on 4.1 no matter what tool is not a clean jailbreak at all. Like everyone on here or at least most. Had to try numerous things to get the jailbreak to go through fully.

    Do you guys have iTunes open when you're putting it in dfu mode? It should be so iTunes can recognize it.

    And as Farbod stated, make sure you have all your software updated. Uninstall whatever jb utility you are using and reinstall too. Maybe the download went corrupt.

    I've used all 3 tools to jailbreak iPhones and haven't had an issue. One time greenpois0n didn't want to recognize dfu but I was on a pc that didn't have iTunes and that was the problem.
