will the new redsnow work for my 3gs?
i just read that redsnow .9 is out and that it will work untethered unless you have one of those late model 3gs's. How can i tell if mine is one of those? and is this different than Blackra1n? meaning .. if i have to boot tethered with blackra1n .. does that mean that i would have to boot tethered with redsnow? or is it a slightly different exploit(i sorta got the impression that it was different from reading the little description of it)?Can anyone clear this up for me?

Find out when your iPhone was produced. If it's before week 40, then it's untethered. Otherwise it is tethered.
It differs from blackra1n because:
It uses our original Pwnage bootrom exploit for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, and iPod 1G. (Because it's a bootrom exploit, it can't be fixed by Apple without a new hardware release.) Note that redsn0w 0.9 does use the USB exploit for iPhone 3GS and iPod 2G running 3.1.2, but that exploit will be fixed in Apple's next FW release.
It offers custom logos and verbose boot
It installs Cydia without needing a separate download
It's not as fast (but redsn0w handles more variations )
