3GS Jailbreak - redsn0w 0.8 - DevTeam Style
While geohot may have beaten the DevTeam to a 3GS jailbreak, they were not far behind - redsn0w 0.8 (the DevTeam's official jailbreak tool for all 3.0+ iDevices) has just been released, and is compatible with the iPhone 3GS.
Oh, and check it out - works on Linux too!
EDIT: To clarify, this is NOT compatible with 3.1 - 3.0 only.
redsn0w is a easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G/3GS and also the iPod touch(1st generation and second generation). Currently it is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

So after work, I'll be restoring and then re-jailbreaking with redsn0w just in case GeoHot missed something with his jailbreak.Gamertag - TJ McHoonigan

geohots jailbraik (purplera1n) has been tested by many tens of thousands, if he'd missd somethng I'm sure it would have been picked up by now. If anything Redsn0w could need updating once the masses start using/testing it.

why didnt they make this front page on their website

ok just tried it. seems a bit easier than their previous jailbreaks but nothing compared to the purplera1n. i unchecked add cydia and icy since i already had them. everything seemed to be working fine. i installed updated ultrasn0w and rebboted device. when it rebooted a window popped up that said my springboard had crashed i was in safe mode. so i clicked the restart button and it restarted to my springboard there i had wifi but no phone signal. so i uninstalled ultrasn0w and rebooted everything is working fine now.

What's the proper way to use redsn0w if the iphone has been jailbroken by purplerain? Can I just run redsn0w or should a full restore be done first?

But, but I thought they were waiting.....
