Jailbreak iOS 5 GM with Latest Redsn0w
Disclaimer: Jailbreaking on the iOS 5 beta (GM) is done at your own risk.
As we all know, today was Apple's long-awaited day to shows us what the company has in store. Details for the iPhone 4S are out as well as the iOS 5 GM, which is now available for developers via the Apple iOS Dev Center. This brings up the question; so how is the jailbreak community handling it? According to MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd), redsn0w seems to be on par with jailbreaking the newly released iOS 5 GM.
One thing MuscleNerd noted is that you must point redsn0w to the iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW, not the new GM IPSW. This is a matter of redsn0w not having updated the detection mechanism - but no matter, it works nonetheless!
Here are the download links for the latest version of redsn0w:
MMi Member Mirror for Mac
redsn0w 0.9.9b2 for Mac
MMi Member Mirror for Win
redsn0w 0.9.9b2 for Windows
Note: This version of redsn0w does not allow you to jailbreak the iPad 2 on the iOS 5 GM. Also, this is a tethered jailbreak. When a untethered jailbreak is released, it will be heavily exemplified on.
Update: redsn0w 0.9.9b3 was released. It now auto-detects the IPSW - no longer do you need to point at the beta 7 IPSW. The download links are below:
redsn0w 0.9.9b3 for Mac
redsn0w 0.9.9b3 for Windows

Nice. I just wish my GM would download quicker.

Is it tethered or untethered?

While this is good news, I'll wait until an untethered JB can be performed on the GSM iPhone 4 before going to iOS 5.

will this be able to unlock the iphone 4s?

So, since Siri is not included in the iOS5 GM for iPhone 4, will we (meaning the people who do the jailbreaking) be able to hack that in ala multitasking following 3GS release?

I can change it accordingly.Note that if the jailbreak was untethered, I would specifically note in the title. It's important enough for it to be noted in the title.
