Is there a good reason to do it?

Actually, resdsn0w can’t yet jailbreak the 3gs, or new ipod touches that have just been put out, buthey are working on it.

I ran my 3gs jailbroken for awhile, off & on, but I always ran into more memory issues.

Then there’d be an update & I’d go back to “stock” for awhile.

Honestly, I’d wait if I were you. iPhone 4.0 OS will be released in June, and it’s going to be sweet. I’m running the beta 1 now and I love the folders & multitasking.

@netgrrl, oooh. Tell me, do you find yourself using the multitasking feature more or less than you thought? I feel like it’s a feature I think I really want, but when I finally get it, I’ll barely use it. Like copy & paste. I thought I wanted it, but when I did get it, I used it once & that was just to test to see if it worked.

Yes but it’s very complicated. If you just bought it, then it should have the newest firmware which cant be jailbroken yet. You’ll need to downgrade to a lower firmware but stay at 3.0. Once you’ve done that, then can it be jailbroken by blackra1n.

The multitasking became transparent pretty quickly. Plus its only been a few weeks so I’m still at that stage where I forget I can do things now. :)

But 4.0 still has some bugs. I haven’t installed beta 2 yet bc it breaks the camera.

(I have a friend who’s an app developer & he’s added me to his dev list, which is why I have it installed at all.)
