    This is an alternative method to jailbreak the final release of iOS4.

    -Step 1: Make sure you have the final release of iOS4 (the best is a clean one)
    - Step 2: Download redsn0w: http://www.[PIRACY.mu].com/?d=T2N81V4N
    - Step 3: Download the GM from here: (DO NOT RESTORE TO THIS VERSION!) http://gumballtech.com/2010/06/07/download-ios4iphone-os-4-0-gm-here-itunes-9-2-beta-included/
    - Step 4: Open up redsn0w and browse for the GM IPSW (so not the final ios4 IPSW!)
    - Step 5: Select what you want
    - Step 6: Go ahead and follow instructions.

    So, you should be jailbroken now! If it hangs, just try again, or try again on another usb port, or reboot your pc, etc...
    You will get a white Cydia icon, but this fixes when you update Cydia.

    I hope this comes out good for peoplez!

    You can use the new redsn0w 0.9.5b5-3 with the final iOS4 released today and it works. Its in my stickies guide.

    ya, but it nonetheless doesn't really matter. I mean, a lot of people have the GM ipsw still on their pc, and they have the redsn0w b5-2, why wouldn't they use this? But yh, b5-3 does have the support for it

    Your 2G is fine. You can easily jailbreak it using redsn0w.
