redsn0w beta Jailbreak for iPhone3G, iPod touch 2 on iOS 4.1, 4.0

The Dev-Team have released a redsn0w beta Jailbreak for iPhone3G, iPod touch 2 on iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.0.

It uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that we’ve been using since the 2.x days. It does not include the SHAtter exploit developed by pod2g. Nothing new is revealed to Apple with this jailbreak.

If you use the ultrasn0w unlock, they tell you to wait for pwnagetool as redsn0w requires you to update with Apple's firmware which might shut down the possibility for you to unlock "forever".

Hmmmm ... certainly soaking grains, legumes etc (and nuts) helps rid them of phytates and other anti-nutrients. Actually, regarding cooking, Charles Poliquin recommends cashews and almonds be roasted not raw, as the roasting kills anti-nutrients. So I guess I have to go partially back on what I've said about eating food in it's natural state! There are some good arguments that we're adapted to eating a partially cooked diet.
