How to install Whited00r without getting any problems and what to do when it's done.

1) Make sure you have the original 3.1.3 firmware on your iDevice.
2) Download the stock 3.1.2 firmware (3.1.2, why? Because you need it later)
3) Download the latest Whited00r for your iDevice. (currently v4.4.1)
4) Download Redsn0w 0.9.4.

First, when you downloaded all te files, open Redsn0w 0.9.4. Click on "browse" and select the 3.1.2 firmware. Follow the steps in Redsn0w and let it jailbreak your iDevice. But, when the screen of your iDevice turns white, quickly unplug your iDevice and close Redsn0w.

Open iTunes. iTunes should come with a pop-up that says that your iDevice is currently in "Save Mode" or "DFU Mode".
If you are on a Windows PC use SHIFT + [CLICK] Restore.
If you are on a Mac use Alt/Option + [CLICK] Restore.
Select the Whited00r firmware ipsw.
iTunes is now installing Whited00r!

When iTunes is done with restoring, select  "setup as a new iDevice".
If you check the other box it will put a backup you've made on your iDevice. But this could contains errors. So I recommend you to do a clean install, so your iDevice will run smooth and fast.

When this is done, swipe to the second page on your iDevice. There's an app called "MobileTerminal". Open it and then follow these steps.

1) Type "su" [ENTER].
2) Type "alpine" [ENTER]
You are now 'inside' your iDevice.
3) Type now "./Configurator". Don't forget the UPPERCASE.
It should launch a script.
4) Follow the script to speed up your iDevice!

When this is done, it will automatically reboot.

Now your done!

Enjoy your fully featured Whited00r firmware!

(Links to the firmwares and Redsn0w will I post later. I'm now on my iPad).

Thanks to Zook024 for getting that jailbreak going.
Worked fine using sn0wbreeze and terminal mods.  However, there was still a noticeable lag using the home screen wallpapers.  Also, the multitasking transition is not nearly as cool and smooth as the original 4.2.1.  Possibly choosing "n" to more of the terminal settings would have helped.   Looks like it's back to redsn0w 0.9.6b4 with  iFile & fakeClockUp for wallpapers and Backgrounder for multitasking.  Maybe I'll try again with the stable release of  whited00r 5.
