Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 for iOS 5 Beta 5 Released
Jailbreaking on the iOS 5 beta is done at your own risk. Be aware of the consequences and risks of jailbreaking on an iOS beta.
MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) tweeted out that the iPhone Dev-Team has released an updated version (0.9.8b5) of redsn0w for iOS 5 Beta 5.
To jailbreak iOS 5 beta 5, you must point redsn0w to the beta 5 IPSW. Remember: this is a tethered jailbreak so you jailbreak and use redsn0w at your own risk.
Here are the respective links:
redsn0w 0.9.8b5 for Mac
redsn0w 0.9.8b5 for Windows
Note: This jailbreak does not work with the iPad 2 or any devices that are jailbroken with a non-bootrom jailbreak.

It still amazes me how many people don't understand tethered vs untethered and ask why they cant reboot their phone after doing this. lol

After the premature code release (out of his control)- 4.3.4 was just a matter of time.
