    The current ios 5 JB(Jailbreak) is tethered. Whenever you reboot the device it has to be connected to the computer and you must re-run the JB tool each time. The untethered ofcourse means you can reboot the device like usual. The other things you can search for so do a search for SHSH, Pwnage Tool, Sn0wbreeze, redsn0w, Cydia. If you want to know what you can do with it look through some of the lockscreen, theme threads.
    can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

    When you download redsnoe, it'll pretty much walk you thru it. It's easy. Put phone into DFU mode and the rest will run itself. Def do research in it before you do it though. Being tethered, it takes a little more work then an untethered.

    I'm having an unsuccessful time trying to get my iPhone 4 8GB for AT&T to jailbreak. Using RedSn0w, I get it to the white screen, then black screen, then RedSn0w displays "No identifying data fetched." And it just stops.

    I cannot get it to go any further.

    What am I missing?

    You can get the semi tether in cydia just search it. You can just use iTunes and do a restore to your phone and the jailbreak will be gone.

    Google search Redsn0w (with a zero for the o) and you'll find it.

    You have to add a source to cydia http://thebigboss.org/semitether. Then search for it in cydia.
