RedSnow, Jailbreaking IPHONE 3G Firmware 3.0 (iPhone 3GS Jailbreak Has To Wait)

Jailbreaking IPHONE 3G with redsn0w
While looking for information on iPhone 3GS overheating problems, I came across this video on the YT.
Phill from JailBreakiTouch says that it is easy to jailbreak new iPhone OS 3.0. The video itself is not a great the information might be for someone looking to jailbreak an iPhone. I have not done this so I can not vouch for it either. Besides Apple says developpers cannot jailbreak. If you try and cook your iPhone, it is your problem.
But if you go ahead, the author of the video suggests adding some applications to make it worth the trouble.
The iPhone Dev Team blog posted the following message, refering to redsn0w in June;
"redsn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking (iPhone 2G only) tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation). Currently it is available for Windows and Mac OS X (there are some issues using redsn0w with OS X PPC, please use an Intel Mac until we have this problem resolved)."

Once it is jailbroken head to Cydia and install:
Winterboard - Changes the look
Five Dock Icons - gives you 5 icons at the bottom instead of 4
Make it Mine - Change AT&T or Rogers etc to whatever you want
SB Settings - Quick tool at the top of your phone - Slide finger across top to activate it and many other applications for jailbroken iPhones,

If you follow the youtube link, you will find liks to jailbreak applications for both Windows and Mac platforms.
