    I know you all are fed up with people asking questions about jailbreaking the verizon iphone 4, but I really need help!

    I've been on an AT&T iphone 4 jailbroken on 4.1 with limerain since last october so I haven't kept up with how to jailbreak the verizon phones. I got one yesterday and it has 4.2.6 firmware on it. I found this site (http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-verizon-iphone-4-4.2.6-ios-greenpois0n-how-to-video-guide/)

    it says you can jailbreak 4.2.6 with greenpoison RC5.4, but on the greenpoison website all there is for download is RC6.1

    of course I go to plug my phone into my itunes and it says I have to have at least 10.1 to use this phone in itunes.

    so my question is can I upgrade to itunes 10.3.1, restore with my backup from my AT&T phone and then jailbreak with the RC6.1? I don't want to ruin my verizon phone because it's in the process of porting my AT&T number right now and I can't afford to not have a phone lol

    your help is much appreciated and thanks in advance for any advice given =)

    you can use the latest version of greenpos0in. it's a update just like a app in the app store. if your talking about putting att firmware on a Verizon phone no you can't hence the different firmware versions. you can transfer your contacts. apps and purchased music.

    I was actually able to find the 5.4 greenpoison.

    So yesterday I couldn't make or receive calls because my number was being ported, I was able to use 3G data though. I updated iTunes, restore from a backup of my AT&T phone and then jailbroke with greenpoison.

    Now I don't have data, can't make calls and when I call to check the status of my number port they say it's complete =(

    So I screwed up something.

    That was for Mac, I have a PC. I did all of the jailbreaking last night before you posted anyway, but I do appreciate you linking that site.

    Actually, I got my phone all sorted out. The number we gave verizon to text so we could finish the port had messages blocked on it lol I just had to call and they told me what I had to do to finish the process.

    I'm all jailbroken now, trying to figure out the different names on the icons and UI, such a hassle.

    Thanks again for trying to help me though!

    I am having issues with this, in expert mode it tels me to browse for the IPSW but all of my options are grayed out.

    I followed the 3 steps from the link you provided.

    Ok i am not sure what happened, looked like it was working and after a few nerve racking moments trying to hold the power button and the home button. The Pwnage Tool said i was successful.

    However iTunes wanted me to restore the iPhone so i did. The first time it went through the re-store and then gave me an error saying the phone could not be resotred, i then tried it again and this time it restored and then gave me the option to restore from backup or setup as a new phone. i chose to use the "from backup option". looking at the phone i am pretty sure it is not JB so i guess i failed on this attempt.
