i need to reboot quite often.. once in 2 days.. and always when im travelling. i go in and out of signal all the time. so sometimes the EDGE/3g gets stuck or doesnt work till a full restart. cycling the airplane mode doesnt help. so for me tethered is not an option.. been using stock for 3 days no.. so far so good..
no withdrawal symptoms yet!!

haha well i definitely would not say the Cat won but it seems to have been slow goings with the jailbreak scene
thanks to upcoming delta updates, my new anxiety will soon consist of me wanting to update but cannot due to the JB. this is where i feel the Dev Team will have their hands full and ultimately leave a lot of jailbreakers not up to date with the latest firmware/bug fixes. i'd be curious if it's possible for Apple to patch the current/ latest exploits used to jailbreak with these delta updates

Well first of all there is now a semi-tethered JB thru Big Boss. I didn't keep the link but check redmondpie.com sure it's on there. So if your phone crashes or loses power the semi-tethered allows you to use iPhone.app, SMS, etc. The untethered is already ready but they were holding on to it so Apple doesn't fix it when they release it that is last I heard. Anyway this is not the first time I've heard people doubt the JB and each time it makes me wonder why everyone is always so quick to think that devs who make good money would just walk away like it was a flash in the pan. It has also been proven by Apple ripping off the ideas that it of some use to Apple. Anyone remember how longthe iPad 2 JB took? and yet now that we have it that all gets forgotten.
im going to wait for the untethered... the semi tethered seems to have alot of short falls.its a good solution to those who are already jailbroken!
regarding untethered being ready.. i highly doubt it! if it was ready it would be out..
waiting for 5.1? then 5.2? then 5.3? makes no sense to wait.. all rumors in my opinion. just like the 2.10 unlock.that some people are still waiting for. dev team said after 4.3..it never happened!

Also, say Apple releases 5.2 (or whatever the newest ios5 will be), and then the dev team releases the JB, won't apple just fix it in 5.3? What's the logic behind waiting for the first update if apple would fix it in the following update anyways?
Anyways, I hope you're right, my 4s is full of untapped potential! Let's go Dev team!

Any clue/speculation regarding a JB of the 4s/new hardware? I realize it's only been a week or two since the 4s has been released? I don't understand how the hardware effects jailbreaking, but apparently it does.
PS, kinda off topic, but if I had a tweak, say biteSMS for example, could I download it on my computer, and then manually copy and paste it to the right place on my phone? Or must the phone be jailbroken for it to work?

The jb is hardware dependent in the sense that the iP4S and iPad2 use a different chip that isn't vulnerable to the same exploit used in older devices. I haven't heard anything about a new jailbreak, but bear in mind how long it took to find the single exploit used in the jailbreakme.com jailbreak. If that's anything to go by, it could be a while.
As for manually installing Bite: .deb files can be installed manually (do a search for Cydia AutoInstall) and I actually prefer to do it this way--I save all my .deb files so I can use an older version of a program in case a developer makes changes I'm not crazy about or releases a buggy update. However, you need to be jailbroken in order to access the file system on the phone.
