    this is what i've tried:
    restore to 4.2.1 in itunes 10 on win7 64bit
    run greenpois0n in admin mode
    hold down power + home
    release power after 10 seconds during black screen
    GP says it's in dfu mode
    select jailbreak
    white screen
    connect to itunes screen
    lots of disconnecting and reconnecting
    GP says "jailbreak complete" without displaying any code on the screen!
    Reboot - Not jailbroken.

    So I restore and try the process with limera1n
    same thing, doesn't work.

    so i go to a 32bit winxp machine and try both
    Same thing, jailbreak acts like it's complete but fails.

    What in the world is goin on here? Why Can't I jailbreak this ipad?

    after doing some reading i'm thinking that jailbreaking 4.2.1 is impossible until the new unteathered is released? Is that right? Eg. Limerain and greepoison only support 3.2.2. However all the guides all over the net say 4.1, but don't specify that it's different for the ipad.
