    I'm having some huge difficulty trying to find working directions to jailbreak my Verizon iPhone 4 running 4.2.8. I found a link that told me to use greenp0ison and i followed it. It said I successfully jailbroke it and it created the loader icon. However, when i click the loader icon, nothing happens. It acts like the screen will open up a new app, but it flashes and goes back the same screen. I have rebooted many times, i have re-JB'd, even had to restore my device because i got it stuck in recovery mode. So currently i'm still stuck with the loader icon that won't install Cydia. I've seen many people have this issue but i never saw what the fix was. What is the fix?

    Is there a foolproof way to JB 4.2.8 ?

    I was unaware that greenpois0n had a jailbreak for 4.2.8, I thought only redsn0w had one. I used redsn0w with the iREB tool you can get on the website and it worked flawlessly. If you can't get it to work with greenpois0n, I would say do a factory reset, and try the redsn0w method posted here.

    If (and probably when) you get an Error 16xx (unable to restore error), load the iREB tool, select iPhone 4 while its in DFU mode and it will put it in PWN state so you can flash the IPSW file redsn0w created. Yea sounds a lot harder than greenpois0n but I'm the kind of person that doesn't want to wait .

    Edit: must have posted this same time or close to you had the second post... sorry :X
