    I've not been able to get cydia on my iphone 3GS since the greenpois0n jb. Here's the background;

    -iPhone 3GS on running 4.0.1 jb with jailbreakme.com
    -restored to clean 4.2.1
    -ran greenpois0n RC-5
    -ran redsn0w 0.9.6b4 to install cydia
    - Put phone in DFU mode, redsn0w gets through the 'waiting on reboot' iphone goes to white screen, and redsn0w shows 'unexpected error' gives the info about rebooting and trying different USB port. Tried that, but nothing else happens.

    I've also tried several other redsn0w versions (0.9.6b4, 0.9.6rc8, 0.9.7b6) all have the same result. any thoughts?

    Have you tried shacking the device and spinning around 5 times?

    No but in all serious what version os is your macbook running?
    Have you tried using a different computer if ones available?
    And do you have the right fw downloaded for your device?

    I do have a hackintosh that I could try, or see if there's a version of redsn0w for windows 7 as well. iPhone firmware that's being used is iphone2,1_4.2.1_8C148a_Restore.ipsw

    guess to the hackintosh.... then the shacking of the phone.
