    THIS IS ONLY FOR IPOD TOUCH 2G MB BOOTROM AND IPHONE 3G.
    First of all, make sure you have restored your iPod to the latest public release of iOS4, and have Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-4 and iOS4 GM at the ready

    It is up to you to find iOS4 GM i think? Google is your friend

    ^ These New Versions now do not require the GM ipsw, you can now just use the Public Release ipsw.

    1) Open up Redsn0w and where it says browse for the IPSW, click browse and choose the GM firmware that you have downloaded, NOT THE PUBLIC RELEASE. now the Public Release Firmware.

    2) Go through with the usual steps - enable multitasking and wallpapers if you want, just make sure you check Cydia if this is a fresh jailbreak.

    3) Continue with the rest of the procedure as normal (going through DFU mode and waiting while the jailbreaking takes place).

    Cydia will show as a white icon, so you have to open it and let it reorganize it, then make sure you update everything.

    If anyone feels like making a better tutorial, go ahead on this, I know that I'm not great at making them

    Okay..am I missing something here? If we upgrade to iOS4 public release, Why would we bother going to the GM version? I'm not understanding what the difference is between GM version and public release..

    So It's still not ready. I would wait for a actual launch to fix these issues , but this should be fine

    Would I be better off waiting for redsn0w to officially support the public release?

    Go ahead.

    Go ahead, I used Redsn0w to jailbreak the release and it's absolutely fine, funnily enough I was going to post a tutorial here too, but somebody beat me to it.
