Earlier today, ih8sn0w uploaded the latest update to the unofficial pwangetool for Windows, Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 4. This new beta of sn0wbreeze now comes with support for jailbreaking iOS 5 beta 3 which was released yesterday. You’ll be able to jailbreak all supported devices using sn0wbreeze 2.8b4 except the iPad 2, for which you can use JailbreakMe 3.0.
Sn0wbreeze 2.8b4 will jailbreak iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G tethered and if you have an iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), sn0wbreeze will jailbreak that untethered on iOS 5 beta 3.

* Intended only for developers (as usual).
* Hacktivation is disabled (again).
* MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE TO iTunes 10.5 BETA 3!
iPhone 3G[S] (old bootrom) [UNTETHERED]
iPhone 3G[S] (new bootrom) [TETHERED]
iPhone 4 (GSM) [TETHERED]
iPhone 4 (CDMA) [TETHERED]
iPod Touch 3G [TETHERED]
iPod Touch 4 [TETHERED]
iPad 1G [TETHERED]
Those wondering, the jailbreakme exploit
cannot be integrated into applications
such as PwnageTool/redsn0w/sn0wbreeze.
redsn0w seems to be having sandbox errors
due to it using the old b1 kernel.
I and many others have not seen any issues
with sn0wbreeze related to AppStore apps.
If you prefer to use redsn0w, I am sure
@MuscleNerd is working on a fix.

Please keep in mind that iOS 5 beta 3 is meant for developers only. We would recommend that you refrain from upgrading to it, if you are not enrolled in the Developers Program.
If you’re a software unlocked iPhone user, then iOS 5 beta firmware is not for you because if you upgrade to it, your unlock will be lost, meaning that you will not be able to use cellular services on your iPhone. Mac users can use redsn0w 0.9.8 beta 2 for jailbreaking iOS 5 beta 3.
