UPDATE: Dev Tip: If you’re stopped at “Greenpois0n initalized.” Re-try greenpois0n again, except when you’ve entered DFU mode, don’t let go of the home button. Also, Turn auto-sleep off, then launch Loader. (I had auto-sleep on and was 15% done, my iPhone feel asleep and now I have to start over).

HotTip: If you cannot get Cydia to install, run redsn0w and tell it to install Cydia (and nothing else)

UPDATE: Greenpois0n RC5_2 has been released to address the Greenpois0n initializing freeze mentioned above. You shouldn’t have to worry about that in the latest version.
