I just did a complete restore of my firmare_4.2.1_8C148_Restore using Itunes, then tried to JB with redsn0w 0.9.6RC8 and 0.9.6b5 several times using the same IPSW .
However here is the step where the problem starts it tries to download ram disc, no hardisc image shows on my iphone screen it turns to white screen like its rebooting then black and it stays black screen.But redsnow says it finished which i doubt because from fetching ipad baseband to saying it finished only takes probably maximum of 30 seconds. what am i doing wrong here? this is just frustrating

I tried to JB my 3g with greenpois0n latest ver and it will not recognize my phone in dfu mode but if i switch to redsn0w it recognizes dfu but will not complete reboot to JB so I have to restore with Itunes every time.
the funny thing is this phone was JB and unlocked with jailbreakme.com for a year until i upgraded to 4.2.1
I am trying to upgrade the BB to 6.15.00 to unlock like my other 4 phones but this older one is giving me major headaches
