redsn0w 0.9.5 beta 5 was released a few days ago by the iPhone Dev Team to jailbreak iOS 4 on iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G. This release was Mac only and enabled features such as multitasking and springboard wallpaper which are disabled by default by Apple. redsn0w 0.9.5 beta 5 has now been released for Windows as well.
The instructions are very simple. Upgrade your iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G to iOS 4, then use redsn0w to point to that iOS 4 firmware and follow the simple instructions by going to the next page. You can also deselect the enabling of multitasking and springboard wallpapers your unsupported device to save battery life.
Important Note: Don’t try this if you use an unlocked iPhone 3G to use it with other carriers. This is only a jailbreak solution. When the unlock for iOS 4 is available, we’ll let you know. Also, don’t try this if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Can you confirm that “You'll still need a properly-registered developer UDID to get past activation” is not accurate? I've heard from several places that the GM build of iOS 4 does not require a developer UDID.
Also, can you confirm that this works fine with iTunes 9.2 that was just released?
Yup, this build doesn't require a UDID and it should work fine with iTunes 9.2 since it's not a Spirit based jailbreak.
I can also confirm that is works w/o UDID.
i know right
Is this jailbreak applicable only for 3G? Can I jailbreak my 3GS 4.0.1 phone using this tool?
