    I failed to research jailbreaking the new 3GS I got today. I guess my only option is this tethered jailbreak. I have two computers, one is a mac and one is a PC. If I reboot the phone can I only re-jailbreak with the mac? If that is the case, I may have to wait until we dont have to do a tethered jailbreak. Any idea when that will be?

    You can rejailbreak it on any computer, mac or PC. As long as the computer has Internet-access and you can download Blackra1n.

    Even if you don't have Internet access, you can just download blackra1n on a USB thumb drive from your house, and travel with that at all times.

    There is currently no solution to the tethered jailbreak, and there most likely won't be until 4.0 is released.

    Thats too bad. Are there other tethering options available if I dont want to jailbreak? I just cant run the risk of not having a computer to reboot my phone as I am on the road constantly.

    The jailbreak is tethered. So there is no problem such as tethering as long as it's not jailbroken... I think you need to read a bit more about tethered jailbreak..

    I guess I wasn't clear. I want to tether my iphone to laptop for internet access. I was using mywi on my 3G. That, obviously, isn't an option anymore. Are there other ways to bring internet access to my laptop via iphone without a jailbreak?

    Well.. Here in Denmark we use Internet-tethering thru BT or USB-cable. Works like a charm.
    But I have no idea if you have that option.. Sorry.

    You don't necessarily have a tethered jailbreak, it depends on what bootrom you have.

    I don't understad.... if you want to tether Internet to your laptop... and your worries about having a TETHERED JAILBREAK... but you travel with a laptop....

    Why the hell dontuou just bring the laptop with you in the case that your iPhone randomly reboots? You don't need the Internet to run blackra1n, and you already travel with the damned laptop, so I'm not understanding why it's such an issue for you....

    You don't need internet to run Blackra1n. You need WiFi to install Cydia when you first jailbreak, but after that if you reboot, all you need is a computer with Blakra1n installed so that you can run it. Carry Blackra1n on a jump drive and use any computer anywhere.
