    I'm using the tethered JB on both my iPad and my iPhone 4 and haven't had any problems so far.

    how? i've been tethered for a couple of weeks now and no problems at all, so far..

    i am able to do a tethered reboot at work and home if needed. up to date i have not needed to use either one

    iP4 iOS 4.2.1
    I work for AT&T, so the day I put redsnow on my work computer is the day I don't work for AT&T anymore lol

    I can say being tethered sucks for me.

    unless i am completely missing something it should not "suck" for anyone..

    yeah once the device is jailbroken there are a few tethered reboots that need to be done to load the proper programs, but after that it's just resprings, which have no effect(s) on the tethered state

    keep the device charged, do not unnecessarily reboot, and if not comfortable, keep all "tweaking" for when you are able to do a tethered reboot (if needed)

    i've gone 2 weeks, so far, and not had to reboot or any issues with charging the device when needed

    i don't understand, do people let their batteries run out of charge and reboot their device for fun?

    I agree. I have been using the tethered version of redsn0w for a few weeks now, and its not all that bad to maintain.

    After initial setup there really aren't many reasons at all to re boot. Although resetting my wifi settings caused a reboot and a trip upstairs to the computer. But for some reason the springboard crashes randomly quite often on me so I'm going back to stock for a while.

    Here's an update for those of you who haven't found out otherwise. I've been using the latest beta from the redsn0w team (beta #4) and it seems my untethered iPad is operating very smoothly albeit a bug with reading free books in the iBooks app. No big deal for me since I didn't buy it for that as it's more often than not attached to my drum kit for the AC-7 Core app.

    That's where it's at so far.

    Me personally, a tethered JB will not suffice, because there have been times when I have had to reboot the phone to sort out glitches where a respring wouldn't or hasn't helped.

    The ease and convenience of being untethered wins over; at least for me.

    well it is better than nothing, really. of course in a perfect world i choose untethered but i am just dealing with what is in front of me. to be honest it is not all those horrific "things" that people, who do not know what the hell they are doing, are posting daily on forums all over the web

    now, to put things in perspective would you rather have a vanilla device or jailbroken tethered device?

    What's your point? The thread is still very relevant given the ongoing development of the jailbreak.

    I want to Jailbreak again, seeing I had to give up my old 3Gs last sunday because it wouldn't power up and I couldn't restore it before I took it to apple, It just died. Wouldn't charge up or anything. But I am worried that the same thing might happen again...I miss my Bite Sms.

    Did you have v4.2.1 and attempt to jailbreak it after which it died?

    Nope It was my old 3gs which was running 4.1 and Limera1n.

    It has survived all previous Jailbreaks before, I think I'd know the difference between not being able to Jailbreak versions now after a whole year of having started off in November 2009 with tethered Blackra1n jailbreak, then a Spirit and Jailbreakme, and finally Limera1n or Greenpoison. My Laptop's itunes was set to not update automatically in itunes...I know what i'm doing bud.

    Wow. Defensive upon impact I see. Nobody's doubting your abilities. I'm just curious as to how various iDevices have been reacting to the redsn0w public beta testing. Relax.

    This may be a little off the topic but can anyone tell me what I'd need to do in this situation.

    I have a iPhone 3Gs. Replaced today by Apple since the volume button was missing and couldn't be replaced. The rep at the store told me it was running 4.1 so I was EXTREMELY happy to know I could now jailbreak my phone again (Old phone was 4.2.1 with the 4.1 SHSH files saved). I'm back and now I see that the OS is 4.2.1. How will I know if this phone was ever jailbroken and SHSH saved to know whether or not to try it when the next JB comes out? If I can't find out, when will I be able to JB again. I miss it sooooooooooooooooooo much! The other phone started with Blackra1n all the way up to Greenpois0n. :-(

    Attempt a jailbreak on it and if it can't find the SHSH blobs at Cydia, then it was either never jailbroken or perhaps it was but the previous owner of it didn't save the blobs on Cydia's server.

    In which case, you may have to live with a tethered jailbreak unless something else is figured out.
