Voila! You have successfully enabled Multitasking and “Background in Homescreen” on iPhone Firmware 4.0 beta1.
It is important to note that multitasking on iPhone 3G might be sluggish and may not be able to handle the workload, as the amount of RAM these devices packed is 128MB only, just half of the third-generation iPhones.
