Redsn0w 0.9.8b2 Released to Jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 3
The iPhone Dev Team has released a new version of redsn0w to properly jailbreak iOS 5 beta 3. Previous versions of redsn0w apparently worked to jailbreak the latest iOS beta, but caused a bug where all App Store apps would not launch, this is what Redsn0w 0.9.8b2 fixes.
If you already jailbroke iOS 5b3 with the prior version of redsn0w, you can just use this updated version to perform a tethered boot which resolves the problem. Otherwise, if you are new to jailbreaking iOS 5 beta 3, then just point this new version of redsn0w at the latest 5.0b3 IPSW file.

Note: this does not activate an iPhone, you will still need a registered UDID with Apple.
This version of redsn0w only works on iOS 5 beta 3 on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 GSM & CDMA, iPod touch 3rd & 4th gen, and iPad 1. iPad 2 support is lacking. The jailbreak is tethered, meaning you must connect it to a computer on each reboot. This is not intended for wide consumption, but mostly for Cydia app developers.
