    Hi, my dad just bought a new 3GS, and I really want to convince him to jailbreak his phone XD
    So, one of the features he really doesn't like in iOS 4, is the multitasking, I mean he really doesn't need it, so it's just a waist of battery for him.

    So my question is, can you disable multitasking on iPhone 3GS by changing the plist the same way you can enable it on iPod Touch 2G / iPhone 3G?

    I'm pretty sure you can, haven't tried it myself though.

    I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Yer, it will work. Just follow a tutorial for enabling multitasking on a 3G / 2nd gen Touch but disable it.
