Well, here’s something great for the jailbreaking community! The famous well-known iPhone hacker and the developer of Sn0wbreeze jailbreak tool, iH8sn0w, has just recently updated his Sn0wbreeze jailbreak tool for the newly released iOS 5 beta 1. Also, this new version of Sn0wbreeze includes untethered iOS 5 jailbreak support on iPhone 3GS, sporting old bootrom. Let’s have more information on this from below.
Hence, if you are enough lucky to have the old iPhone 3GS with old bootrom, then you can gain the profit of jailbreaking iOS 5 beta 1 untethered right now using the Sn0wbreeze 2.8b2.
However, apart from getting the untethered iOS 5 beta 1 jailbreak support for iPhone 3GS with old bootrom, everything else remain same, i.e. you can jailbreak iOS 5 beta 1 on every iOS devices (except iPad 2) on a limited tethered boot only, which means you’ll have to connect your iOS device to your PC/Mac on every reboot.

Also, you have to remember one thing more that the iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) users won’t need to follow “Booting Into Tethered Mode”, since they have got support for the complete untethered iOS 5 jailbreak.
Well, for both our Windows and Mac users, the Redsn0w 0.9.8 is also available that can jailbreak iOS 5 beta 1 tethered all devices except iPad 2. You can get the step by step procedure for jailbreaking using Redsn0w from here.
Another important point is here to note that the new beta version of the iOS 5 is only meant for the registered Apple developers only, and Apple plans to release the public iOS 5 version on this fall.
