    The newest redsn0w betas CAN jailbreak the official iOS 4.0. However, they are NOT compatible with the iPhone 3G. Only with iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2g.

    what about jailbreaking through the redsn0w 0.9.5 b5-3? i couldve sworn i read something about it being able to jailbreak it as long as i used the iOS4 GM

    I believe you can jailbreak the 3GS only if it has the old bootrom.

    Possible, but the description I read said it's for second generation devices only.

    hmmm maybe...but i know this is a noob question, but the new pwnage tool only jailbreaks those that are already jailbroken right? if not how do you jailbreak a 3Gs with pwnage tool? if you cant is there any other way to jailbreak iOS4 right now on the 3GS?

    Well, if it still doesn't work, then what I read must have been correct. Wait for the official release of redsn0w as it will most likely support the 3G.

    You never know. Jailbreaks for the second generation devices are hardware based, so they will always be available almost immediately. However, I believe it is software based for third gen devices, meaning the jailbreak can be broken with firmware updates for these devices. Every time a firmware breaks a jailbreak, developers must find a new one. Only time will tell how long it will be before a new exploit is found and implemented for your device.
