    Hi all
    I'm a total noob when it comes to jailbreaking and want to jailbreak my iPhone 4. 
    I downloaded greenpoison, plugged in my iPhone And clicked jailbreak
    I was following the instructions when it unexpectedly closed and I was stuck with an iPhone in recovery mode
    So I just restored my iPhone using iTunes
    Then after watching a video On how to use greenpoison I put my iPhone in recovery mode first and then pressed jailbreak
    It ran through the timer and at the end nothing happened and a try again button pops up
    After trying again a couple times the app quits again. 
    While still in recovery mode I tried the sleep/home button combination again a couple of times and my phone just booted up without restoring it
    First off, what just happened
    And second, how do I jailbreak?
    Also when greenpoison was open, there were times when my computer just froze. Sometimes it would go back to normal while at others I had to 
    manually restart
