    I have just completed a jailbreak of my iPhone 3G running the iOS4 GM using redsn0w 0.9.5 and a iOS4 Beta ver.4, basically using the same loophole as when I jailbroke 3.1.3 using the "previous version loophole".

    I'm just checking that everything looks fine, but cellular signal and everything else seems fine.

    Now to update Cydia, download iPhone Reader, and get that plist edited so I can enable home screen wallpapers ... :D

    Me too. Stay away from things that use mobilesubstrate.... they don't work well yet.

    The phone runs great with the wallpapers and multi-tasking. I think it's snappier than 3.1.2, even with the features that aren't supposed to work. Time will tell what happens to the battery though.

    Yeah?

    Thanks for the heads up mate, appreciated.

    All I really want is the home-screen wallpaper, which I'm about to enable using iPhone Reader/Text Wrangler to edit the plist.

    Looking forward to getting these features.

    I'm interested in doing the same thing to my 3G but I have never jailbroken my phone before.

    Any place to get step-by-step instructions? I'm not familiar with this "previous version" loophole, and I also don't know what to edit in the .plist to enable wallpaper and multitasking.

    Plist file edited, rebooted, and I have the features. :D

    Could you explain what you used to jailbrake and how you enabled the features?

    Please and thank you :D

    Is this the new "in" question to ask on here just now?

    This thread isn't about how I or the (literally) hundreds of other people on MacRumors have obtained iOS4 for their various devices. It's obvious that there's people who aren't developers running it, if you were on here on Monday evening you'd have followed besweeet's Twitter feed and seen lots of people downloading via the links to his uploads.

    To answer your question, my iPhone is UDID registered as a developers device thanks to the kindness of a member on here who, out of respect of his privacy, will not be named.

    I think it is worth pointing out that having your UDID registered is not necessary for the GM release. All that is needed is a Mac with iTunes 9.2 (you can't activate without 9.2 -- sorry PC users).

    Jailbreaking is possible for the 3G using Redsn0w and for previously-pwned 3GS using a custom firmware created using a modified version of PwnageTool.

    Posting links to software like that is frowned upon here.

    Look deep in besweeet's twitter feed.

    I've updated and jailbroken my iPhone 3G and then enabled multitasking and the wallpapers. The only problem I have is that went I enable multitasking I can get settings to open. Just closes, which is a bit of a let down.

    Are the visual effects more choppy after enabling homescreen wallpapers? Because when I enabled it in beta 1 and 4 the effects became really choppy on my 3G.

    There's some mild frame-rate issues when respringing, but multi-tasking is just a complete no-no as expected.

    If I open messages, phone, settings, and mail ... it slows to a halt.

    So I'd not recommend enabling multi-tasking, even if it does mean you lose the ability to access orientation lock.

    this device is not part of the iphone dev program.

    What features is jailbreaking giving you? I was under the impression that the 3G will have some of the features of iOS4, (i.e. menu wallpapers) but not the multi-tasking aspect.

    Does it support menu wallpapers as standard?

    You're probably using a beta of iOS4, not the GM. Make sure it's version 8A293.

    I am not having any of those issues... It feels snappy. I have Settings, Mail, Photos, Phone, Messages, Safari and Facebook in the multi-task dock and it seriously is running better than 3.1.2 did for me.

    What have you installed from Cydia?
