okay i have an iphone 4 which was previously jailbroken with greenpois0n on os 4.2.. or 4.3.. and i just recently updated to ios 5.0.1 and i try running redsn0w 0.9.10b1 (also tryed b2 and b3) and it upacks the 2 packages but when it says 'waiting for reboot' my iphone turns on the apple logo comes up and it fully reboots. I know its supposed to upload and unpack the data on the phone at this time.
Now before anyone says im doing something wrong, i jailbroke 2 other phones with the same process. i did my g/fs phone first with redsn0w 0.9.10b1 just to make sure everything worked b4 i attempted my phone and it worked. So right after that i updated my phone with itunes, same firmware as hers, and tried redsn0w and the same problem i've been having for 4 days i keep getting stuck at the 'waiting for reboot' screen. redsn0w doesnt even recognize the reboot.
I also did my friends on his computer, hes running windows 7. I tried to even restore my phone on his computer and use redsn0w, still no good.
I have restored my iphone countless amount of times, ive downloaded programs like tinyumbrella and the only thing i could find was that after all the restores there are still greenpois0n files on the phone somewhere but idk how to acess them to remove them.
Any ideas anyone?

Have you done a DFU mode fresh restore to 5.0.1 before you attempted to jailbreak? Also, are you restoring from a backup?
Your best bet is to put the phone in DFU mode (as you would before attempting to run the jailbreak), restore to stock 5.0.1, setup as new phone, then attempt to jailbreak.

Do a full restore from itunes first(be sure to back up your data), then run redsn0w again.

put your phone in pwned dfu mode in redsn0w. Ive had the same issue pwnd dfu is really for loading custom firmwares but, it will sometimes help fix stupid issues
