    Ok, so I have a 3G iphone and yesterday I downloaded and updated to iOS4, right now im super pissed as the fetures I wanted like Multitask and even home wallpaper arent supported.

    Whats the easiest way to "jailbreak" iOS4 and get the features I want?

    redsn0w, enable multi-tasking and home screen wallpaper, then enter DFU and jailbreak, redsn0w will guide you through all of this.
    Works fine on my iPhone 3G, been using multi-tasking and the home background for a few hours and running very smoothly so far.

    Redsn0w FileTrip Download (Windows)

    They go, photos and apps can always be backed up easily though iTunes (Well apps) photos you can just copy to your computer then copy back to your device.

    Uh, no?

    Apple distributes the software packages freely, and in fact, the above links are directed to Apple's servers.

    By the looks of it, 4.0 compatibility + jailbreak isn't possible on a iPhone 2G, is it? I haven't really heard anyone mention the 2G and iOS 4.0 together on the internet.

    Apple decided to nix iPhone 2G and iPod touch 1G support with iOS 4.0. Their excuse is the hardware can't support it, which is utter bullshit since the iPhone 3G has nearly the same hardware.

    There's legitimate reasoning to exclude the iPhone 2G, as it requires unique drivers for it's radio, which increases code complexity.

    For the iPod Touch 1G however I can't say.

    So then if I were to somehow gain 4.0 on it, it'd be through homebrew. I saw a video "proving" that it can be done, but it was French and made independently.


    Skipping the 4.0 issue, is there a way for me to update to 3.1.2/3 and jailbreak it? I'm still on 2.2 right now.

    Yup; Just update or restore via iTunes to 3.1.3, and use Spirit.

    On another note, regarding that video you saw... It was probably a video of whited00r.

    It works on 3gs and 3g, the last just removes some features like multitasking. And unless you're jailbroken you should have nothing to worry about when updating.

    @Dialexio: I don't think that spirit works with the newer version of itunes, the one that is required for ios4, you need to use something else.. redsnow or something. And if its a mc model, you can't jailbreak on ios4

    I was responding to Devil May Cry's question on jailbreaking 3.1.2/3.1.3. But you are correct, Spirit will not work with iTunes 9.2.
