but for some reason both
greenpois0n and redsn0w dont recognzie it and they tell me to read directions, and try again

I agree.
Different computer, try different usb wire, different port etc....
Both Redsnow and GP do work so there's something else not right.
Like mentioned below you cant just use anything for any firmware version.
GP doesnt work with 4.3.5 and redsnow will give you a tethered JB.

thnx guys ur info really helped
i tried other usb port as well as new wire

also it helped me to have itunes open in the background
with redsnow open

and i held the home botton down through the whole process and then
it finally worked and went passed the "expanding limrain"
bec the first time it got stuck there, then i tried it again holding home and
it worked perfect.

thanks guys
