iOS 4 was made available to Public at 10:10 AM PST.
But, like always, Apple has surprised us again, though in a negative manner.
While Installing iOS 4, “Backing up…” your iPhone/iPod touch is COMPULSORY. However, many people around the world are reporting that, their iTunes is stuck at “Backing up…” and it shows them 72 Hours to Back up. This is highly unacceptable. Some People seems to look into the matter and want to wait until this “Backing up….” is over. Whereas, some have left their hopes and will wait until Apple looks into the matter and solves the Problem.
Then, again, iOS 4 Update doesn’t have “Game Center” Application that WAS present in iOS 4 Golden Master version. Reason is unknown for as to WHY Apple removed Game Center from OS.
Unexpectedly, Apple tells that this iOS 4 version is same as that of Golden Master version, however, when i tried to “Jailbreak” this iOS with Redsn0w 0.9.5, it failed to process the .IPSW file.
This proves it’s NOT the same OS.
iBooks is available in App Store now.
iOS 4 has been Jailbreaked!!!
Redsn0w Beta 5, 1 is working with iOS 4 (Official). When it asks for the .IPSW file, just feed in the ORIGINAL GOLDEN MASTER (GM) .IPSW file. It will continue to Jailbreak your Device and enable Multitasking and Homescreen Wallpapers!
While using Redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta 5,2, it crashed in between the Procedure.
Download the new iOS 4 GM version now and install it even when you are NOT a developer.
YES! GM version doesn’t need UDID registeration, however it does need iTunes 9.2 Beta (Mac only).
SO, If you are a Windows User, you CANNOT get the iOS 4 before 21st June.
If you are a Mac User, get it FREE today!

I have tried restoring my iPod touch 2G to iOS 4 GM and it’s working awesome.
Redsn0w 0.9.5 for Windows is also out to enable Multitasking and Background Wallpapers on iPod touch 2G and iPhone 3G.
