    Try limera1n. It's the exact same jailbreak.

    Make sure you have iTunes open while performing the jailbreak. Not sure if that's your problem, but both jb tools won't work if iTunes isn't open.

    Funked your wrong. I've jailbroken with both. Making sure the process was ended before I jailbroke and works perfectly. I would go with gp, I've seen bugs with limerain. GP is clean so far.

    A few of my friends tried to jailbreak with greenpois0n and it didn't work, and they had iTunes closed. Once they opened iTunes and tried it again, it worked. I've also read on twitter that iTunes needs to be open to perform the jailbreak (both GP and limera1n). I personally went with limera1n and I haven't had a single problem yet. Once 4.2 is out, I'll prob use GP and see how that goes.

    Well maybe it just depends on the device, or firmware, or even version of iTunes. Lots of factors to take in to account. As for what jailbreak to use, the outcome is all luck. Some people have bugs in both jailbreaks. I for one completely lost mms capability when I jailbroke with limerain.

    What device are you using, and what firmware? Can't believe I didn't ask this question earlier lol. I think both greenpois0n and limera1n don't work on iPhone 3G. Both jailbreaks require firmware 4.1. I think I'm right in saying that, maybe someone can confirm this.

    Ah, you'll have to use redsn0w or PwnageTool for iPhone 3G. I think redsn0w works on both mac and windows, though PwnageTool is mac only. Search this site for guides on both and you'll find out more about them
