The iPhone Dev-Team has just released redsn0w 0.9.6b5 to jailbreak iPhone 3GS and 3G on iOS 4.2.1 and update baseband to 06.15.00 which can be unlocked with the newly released ultrasn0w 1.2, the redsn0w 0.9.6b5 is available for both windows and mac users.
The new redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 is out. It gives both Windows and OSX users the ability to flash the iPad 06.15 baseband on iPhone3G or iPhone3GS. It fetches the baseband files directly from Apple for now (the only IPSW you ever point it at is the stock IPSW for the FW on your iPhone right now). There may be a long delay while it’s doing this (their servers are currently getting pounded).
