    Its up to you.
    Its already sluggish as it is with 4.0
    If you enable it you will have to restore it again to remove it after if you dont like it.

    I wouldn't if I were you but go for it as you prolly will anyhow. I did it and it was real slow. I switched it back then ultimately got an iPhone 4 for the true experience. I guess worst case is try it and you can always set it back.

    I did. Mine ran very slow and shut down. I restored and went with battery % and wallpapers. It runs just as fast as 3.13. Not as fast as my wifes iphone 4.

    I had multitasking enabled on my 3G and it was more trouble than its worth. The 3G doesn't have enough memory to truly take advantage of it. With Pandora running in the background and trying to check email, surf the web, etc. the phone would just slow to a crawl and often reboot.

    After you jailbreak you can enable or disable multitasking or wallpaper by editing System/Library/CoreService/SpringBoard.app/N82AP.plist after doing that just reboot your phone. there's no need to restore or jailbreak all over again.

    look for these entries and change them to true or false depending or what you want enabled or disabled.

    <key>multitasking</key>

    <true/>

    <key>homescreen-wallpaper</key>

    <true/>

    Good info.
    I didn't know it was that easy.
    All you gotta do is ssh into it.

    Are you jonesing for a jailbroken phone yet? I am about to lose my mind. I have the I4 and I love it, but I need tethering! I am not about to give up my unlimited data plan for it though. Does anyone have any ideas how long it could be until we get a jailbreak?

    If you don't like it, just rerun the Redsn0w and untick the "Multitasking" and "Install Cydia" options... No restore required.. I did it since my iPhone 3G was sluggish with multitask... I miss the orientation lock and new Application change animation though.. :p

    I just added Multitasking back on with the above mentions SSH method and noticed no slower performance. Recently I was running a combo of apps mentioned here(Remove Recents, Backgrounder, iMemory Enhancer) which along with SBSettings to display/kill still running apps, my phone was stable/ crash fee. The one thing missing was the IOS4 "app switcher" and the hidden iPod controls and "rotation lock." I tried the SBSettings "Rotation" toggle but for some reason with it switched on/ off. my photos wouldn't switch from Portrait to Landscape? As I said before, so far so good. As long as I can still "close" apps when not in use, I don't see battery life/ performance being an issue? With all the issues plaguing iPhone 4 I think I'll hold on to my trusted 3G just a little while longer!
