I'm new to jailbreaking. I have a few questions?
I really want to jailbreak my iPhone 4. It's currently running iOS 5.0.1.
I know that there is a 5.0.1 tethered jailbreak available, via redsn0w 0.9.9b9. I was wondering if I should go ahead and do this. But on the other hand, I know Pod2g is working on an untethered solution.
What would you recommend, doing it now, or waiting? Is it possible for me to go ahead and jailbreak now, and then "switch" to the untethered version without losing data/restoring?
I don't want to jailbreak now and then have to jailbreak again later, losing all my stuff.
Thanks a lot,

might as well wait and make your first time jailbreaking one less thing to hassle with (tethered jb)
there'll be plenty of other things to concentrate on and being UNtethered makes the user experience much more pleasurable
plus assuming the new JB will be userland you can do it OTA. WIN!

I don't know how iOS 5 will work going from tethered to untethered on same iphone.

tethered or untethered meh I've been tethered since iOS 5 no spontaneous reboots. If you want to see what you can do with the phone click the link in my Sig. Like someone said in the thread whether you'll be able to go from tethered to untethered really matters on how they put the tool together. So at this point no one is going to be able to tell you. However once 5.1 or 5.2 comes out you'll have to redo your JB anyway it's part of the life of a JBer. So don't shy away from the tethered JB, pod2g did say it was coming so if you can wait then wait if not and you're itching to get started do it.

If you visit tipb often then go ahead and tether jailbreak just so you don't have to miss out on the awesome experience of jailbreaking. I personally couldn't wait for a untethered so I had to jailbreak now but I will immediately restore and re-jailbreak to an untethered state as soon as it becomes available. Unless of course I can jailbreak over my tethered jailbreak
Between tipb, twitter, and RSS I think I will know about the untethered almost as soon as it happens.
