There is a space between man’s imagination and man’s attainment that may only be traversed by his longing.
Ok, many guys love asking, love what I’m sure they know, and love steps.
They sent me after the main post Redsn0w 0.9.8 Download Available.. Brings iOS 5 Jailbreak, hop to write the steps they have to do. Although I don’t love repeating myself, here is the steps because I love them.
Note: I added How To Tether Boot because i’m sure many other will ask about it.

First: How to Jailbreak iOS 5 with RedSn0w 0.9.8b   

Step 1

Download RedSn0w 0.9.8b
Download iTunes 10.5 beta
Download iOS 5 beta

Step 2

Restore iOS 5 beta on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and keep it connected to your computer via USB.
Note: You can skip this step if you’re already running iOS 5 beta.

Step 3

Execute the Redsn0w 0.9.8

Step 4

Hit the Browse button and select iOS 5 beta firmware (that downloaded in Step 1). 
RedSn0w will recognize your IPSW file. Then hit Next.

Step 5

Check mark “Install Cydia” and hit Next.

Step 6

Make sure your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch is turned OFF and Plugged in to your computer. Hit Next.

Step 7

Now you’ll be instructed to put your iDevice into DFU Mode (Read More Below). Follow the on screen instructions.
  1. Hold Down The Power (Corner) button for 3 Seconds
  2. Without releasing the Power button, also hold down the Home (Bottom Center) button for 10 seconds
  3. Without releasing the Home button, release the Power button BUT KEEP holding the Home button for 15 seconds
Once you’ve successfully entered into DFU mode, RedSn0w will start jailbreaking iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPod Touch 4G, 3G on iOS 5 tethered. When done! your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will be jailbroken tethered on iOS 5.

Second: How To Tether Boot

Each time you reboot/restart/turn off your iDevice you will have to connect it to a computer in order to boot it into jailbreak state. In order to do that:
  1. Open Redsn0w
  2. Provide it the IPSW file
  3. Choose the option Just boot tethered right now and proceed.
What Is DFU Mode DFU stands for Device Firmware Update. Unlike Recovery Mode, DFU Modedoesn’t load the firmware/OS currently installed before restore attempt. DFU modewill be considered as a last resort to restore if a restore using Recovery Modedoesn’t work and you are getting error while restoring you device.
How to Put iPhone in DFU Mode
Step 1: Open iTunes and connect the iPhone via USB.

Step 2: Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time. (for exact 10 seconds)

Step 3: Release the Sleep/Wake, But Keep holding the Home button until iTunes pops up that it has found an iPhone in Recovery Mode.

It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Wake/Sleep button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!
