It is very, very hard to actually brick an iPhone (most of which happened back when you had to run commands in terminal to the phone to do the jailbreak). All you have to do if the jailbreak does not work is go into DFU mode and restore.

You don't have to use greenposion to do that. A simple restore can do the same too.

There are many succesful stories of Verizon iPhones being jailbroken with greenposion.

oh ok well thanks.... so if greenpoison doesnt jailbreak it do i just keep trying? or do i need to do a restore from itunes?

Keep trying. I don't have a Verizon i4 but my ATT i4 took 2 times to get it to jailbreak. My 3GS once and my iPad 3 times.

i see so sometimes it will not work on the first time? what does it normally do when it doesnt work on first try does it just freeze up? or what? and do you just keep trying to jailbreak until it works?
02-10-2011, 01:34 AM #92
Mine froze. But sometimes it looks like it freezes too but will work anyway.
Important first thing to do after you have jailbroken: After you open Cydia and do the updates then make sure to click "Make My Life Easier" This is important if at a later point you need to downgrade.
But when you do get your phone and if you have issues you can find help on ModMyi. Plenty of people on here willing to lend a hand to help out.

downgrade for what? what is that for?
02-10-2011, 01:39 AM #94
When a new firmware is released it is not jailbroken most times. Sometimes it takes months. But this version (4.2.1 or 4.2.6) is and with that button it allows you to go back down to those firmwares to jailbreak because Apple will not let you downgrade.

i see... does the jailbraking make the phone slower or not allow you to do certain things? and if i do a restore on itunes it will take me back to factory settings?
02-10-2011, 01:46 AM #96
Somethings may make it slower but the i4 is pretty fast. It all depends on what you install. It operates like a normal iPhone but better with the tweaks.
Hitting restore in iTunes will take it back to normal firmware. You can sync just fine though.

Mods - It's pathetic that the majority of posts in this thread aren't even on topic.
This is a Verizon jailbreak thread. Everyone posting about 4.2.1 and ipads, needs to seek another thread to ask their unrelated questions in.
Kinda hard to find information that's relevant in this thread if you have a Verizon iphone don't you think?I write Mac only tutorials for the iPhone. Check out my iOS 6 and iOS 7 tutorials: modmyphone d o t us
