Who here has the new 3gs jailbroken with the NEW bootroom? Worth it?
Is it worth it? That every time u have to start phone or if battery runs out u have to rerun blackrain . I am always near a computer and the biggest problem I see is when I travel on the plane. If my battery duns out I'd have to take ou my laptop. Also if te phone were to freeze. Does this freeze that often that you would reatart?

If the original question was actually is it worth jailbreaking if you have to be tethered, then the answer is YES.
Let's face it, if you're on an airplane and your battery runs out, you're gonna break out your laptop anyway, right? Cause at that point, you've got some charging to do before anything matters. If you're rarely away from a charging source or a computer, then it really won't matter. I've been on a tethered j/b since the end of December, and have had to do a reset (unplanned) twice: once to reset my battery meter, and once because AT&T had upgraded cell towers locally and I had NO SERVICE. Both times I simply reset by running Blackra1n on the closest pc.

And Data, blackra1n doesn't jailbreak because of the bootrom. Every jailbreak is created by finding "holes" in the code of the firmware/OS that the sclera find. They use this hole, and then create a program (blackra1n/redsn0w) that "sneaks" the jailbreak code into the firmware through that hole (a/k/a 'exploit'). All that code does is modify the firmware so that it can allow open source coding and third party coding to run on the OS.
It actually had NOTHING to do with the bootrom.
Why doesn't an older jailbreaking tool work on newer OS, you ask?
Because with every new release of an OS, Apple LITERALLY 'closes/fixes' the hole that the hackers previously discovered.
That's why it takes so long for a new jailbreak tool to be released whenever there's a new OS. Because the hackers have to find a new exploit.
Geohot currently claims that he's found at least 2 exploits that he is keeping quiet about until the 3.2 and 4.0 OS release, because he doesn't want to utilize them NOW and have Apple fix them yet.
