Thinset over greenboard??

Been searching but couldn't find what I was looking for.

I'm about to install 12x12 tiles on the walls of the bathroom but I think I screwed up. I installed greenboard on all the walls, except the shower...that's all Durock.

I'm planning on bringing the tiles up about 48" from the floor but I finished it with regular compound. Will thinset (Customblend Standard Thin-set Mortar) work? According to this it indicate it will. Your thoughts......

If not, what type of thinset do you recommend?

If it can be used. Will have have to seal the walls first? OR just set the thinset on top of it?

How about Mastic, will this work.
