    If you were to jailbreak the ipad with redsn0w [tethered] then just rejailbreak when greenposi0n comes out with untethered does that mean your iPad will be jailbroken untethered?

    and all the data and etc will be kept?

    thanks!

    While that might be possible, I would recommend starting with a fresh unbroken jailbreak if and when the untethered 4.2.1 comes out. So I will restore to 4.2.1 then jailbreak again--that is if I even bother with it.

    To be honest I have not been bothered much at all by the tethered nature of redsn0w. My iPad seems to need far less rebooting than my iPhone, and when I do it is planned so I am at my PC. But I won't be doing a tethered jb on my iPhone.

    I agree Michael, that's why I'm going to tether jailbreak my iPad.

    Rarely if ever does my iPad need a reboot, but sometimes an app might freeze.

    The only way to fix this is to hard reset and I might not be a computer.

    This is rare, but it does happen.

    That's why I plan to do the tether jailbreak to get a feel of the new iOS, then when, if ever, jailbreak it untethered.

    Guess when that happens I'll just restore and do all that jazz.

    Thanks.

    I should note I do use SBSettings to "respring" my iPad, probably daily. While not quite as good as a reboot it does clear out any running apps, and frees up RAM. In addition, before running a CPU or memory intensive I app I check the running processes with SBSettings and kill anything that I don't need in memory. Hopefully this minimizes my chances of running into a completely unresponsive app.

    What I think would be awesome, if a tethered jb is going to be around awhile--at least for the iPad--is some kind of little dongle that plugs into dock connector that mimics what redsn0w does to reboot tethered. I'd pay for something like that. Well, duh... no one is gonna be giving them out for free.

    Thanks for all the great information.
    I'll wait for the weekend to get some "real" time to JB my iPad.
    I already have saved my BLOBS (I know what it is, but what does the abbreviation stand for???) yesterday.

    Read 4.3 will early 2011???

    If so, I think they will wait to untether jailbreak that...

    That's a long wait.

    I'm happy with my tethered jailbreak, but it's hard at times.

    For example, when I'm downloading something with safari download manager, it keeps retrying and can't download it properly. Only way to fix this is a reboot, but when I'm downloading, I'm mainly on WiFi, and my computer is around.

    It's just tedious to do.

    Try downloading with goodreader. It's a little cumbersome to get to the dl-address via surfing, but if the dl-address is available, it's just a matter of copy and paste. Worked for me. I don't know though it goodreader uses safari.

    I assume that 4.3 won't bring new features I'd be interested in and I also use my iPad at home (mostly). So tethered seems fine for me.
