    Just hours after Apple released the highly anticipated iPhone iOS 4 update, the folks from iPhone DevTeam has also released a new redsn0w beta "to hacktivate iOS 4.0 for iPhone 3G." According to the team:

    Update #1: redsn0w beta has been updated to hacktivate iOS 4.0 for iPhone3G (in addition to jailbreaking the iPhone3G and iPod Touch 2G). The download links for redsn0w 0.9.5b5-3 are:

    Mac OSX (x86)
    Windows

    For now, the redsn0w beta release supports only the iPhone3G and iPod Touch 2G at today’s 4.0. It’s still a beta, so you’ll need to let Cydia reorganize, reload, and update after using redsn0w.

    So there you have it folks, stay tune for further updates.

    If you're referring to the iPod Touch 2G, then I'm afraid that multitasking wouldn't go down well at all due to lack of memory [​IMG].

    PwnageTool 4.0 Released
    http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/726179754/foursome-news

    In other news, I went from Jailbroken 3.1.2 on my 3G to 4.0, then Jailbroke using redsn0w (With multi-tasking and home screen background enabled) all worked fine, minus the fact that Cydia had a white icon, but that is fixed as soon as you load the app and reorganize. Then I connected to iTunes and re-set-up my iPhone from a backup with a few of my apps in it, installed the backup all good, Springboard resprang, but then all my official Apps (The ones that come when you first get your iDevice) had all dissapeared, baring Weather and Youtube app. Even when I rebooted multiple times it was still the same, told the Dev-Team about the issue, dunno if it's just me or what but I restored back to 4.0 Official and re-jailbroke again, all's going fine so far, if anyone can recreate the problem so I know it's not just me please do tell.

    Is this tethered or untethered?

    Untethered, it's safe to reboot and keep the Jailbreak, everything seems to be working fine for me now, multi-tasking is pretty sweet, even on a 3G it runs fine. Especially loving the orientation lock though!

    Works fine on my 3G so should work fine for your iPod Touch 2G, you can just select the option 'Enable Multi-tasking' when going through redsn0w.

    For those of you who have NO idea how to use redsn0w (like me), my friend has just posted a useful link on my wall on Facebook.

    Sharing is caring, right? [​IMG]

    That's basically what redsn0w tells you to do throughout. Also noteworthy is that iBooks after Jailbreaking ceases to function properly, seems i'm not the only one with this problem aswell, happening to everyone.
    EDIT: I don't think orientation lock is iPhone-only but it might require Multi-tasking to be enabled to access it as you access it on the multi-tasking screen (Double tap home button)
    Currently uploading redsn0w 0.9.5b5-3 (Windows) to FileTrip, will post mirror when done.
    EDIT2: FileTrip Mirror

    Oh, it says that stuff right on the program? I didn't know, seeing as how I still haven't even opened the program (iOS 4 IPSW for iPT 2G is still downloading). However, it's good to have it all there.

    EDIT: So does this mean that installing Backgrounder and Multifl0w is a bad idea on iOS 4? [​IMG]

    I just loaded 4.0 on mine (3g) and redsnowed it seems to work okay so far, but it appears as if some homebrew needs to be updated cycorder just kicks me back to the main screen as well as mx-tube and springboard just freezes on startup but that is too be expected , but so far so good busy testing out multitasking


    PS My battery still doeesnt show percentidge any ideas?

    Mine shows percentage, but any idea why TextPlus simply won't install, neither through the App Store or *snip?
