How to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 On iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G using Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 For Mac

I have informed about the new version of Redsn0w on the previous post. The tool is designed to jailbreak iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G using iOS 4.2 also iOS 4.1, but the bad thing is your unlock ability will be gone because of jailbreaking your iDevice using the tool will also update your baseband.

Thus, for unlocked iPhones that are using ultrasn0w it's not recommended to jailbreak using the just released version of Redsn0w.
