Redsn0w won't work on a 3GS I believe.

greenpoision doesnt support iphone 3g on 4.2.1 i think that coz i tried it with greenpoision n it didnt work n it was also mentioned in the readme section of greenposion that iphone 3g is not supported ..
@moon#pie ...redsnow do have suppourt for iphone 3gs n i would suggest u greenpoision rc5 coz its the best at moment it juz takes 2 mins to jailbreak

I have a 3G with 4.2.1 and firmware 05.15.04
Using redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc8 and iPhone2,1_4.2.1_8C148a_Restore.ipsw I tried to install Cydia.
Redsn0w also gets stuck on 'waiting for reboot'
If I hold power+home for 10 seconds then turn on, the phone comes back on unaffected, which was a relief.
I have used the same jailbreak method but also installed iPad baseband for a 3GS and that worked fine.
Any idea what the problem is?
