    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.

    I tried going to the dev site first, but the redsn0w site is extremely slow.

    Thanks op for the info. Just to share info - I didn't have any luck with this yet.

    The new redsn0w recognizes the ipa file, unlike previous versions, and everything looks o.k. until the iphone reboots. When it reboots... nothing's changed, my iphone 3G is still at 3.1.2, weird.

    one quick question: should I update my iphone first to iOS4 before using redsn0w?

    Thanks - so this uses the Official 4.0 release for the iphone 3g? What's the best procedure to install it? Should I first upgrade normally to ios 4 from itunes 9.2, then run redsn0w, using the official 4.0 release (not the GM release)?

    Thanks for the info!
