    Bit of a n00b when it comes to Apple stuff, jailbroken iPhones before but I'm a bit nervous about ruining my new toy.

    Been scouring google for days but still not found an untethered solution as of yet, anybody got any info on it?

    Cheers

    Basically with a tethered jailbreak, if you have to restart the device for any reason you will need to be near a pc with something like ibooty installed on it. If you restart the device without booting it this way you will pretty much lose the jailbreak.

    Untethered means once you jailbreak it, the jailbreak stays on the device no matter what until you decide to get rid of it.

    I presume the 4.3 JB (when it's out) will work on the iPad 2 and the iPad running 4.3, is that correct?

    Nope...lol. The ipad2 will need it own form of jailbreak. The hardware is different from the iPad 2. Plus 4.3.1 is already released so jailbreak is needed for that also. Ipad2 jailbreak is coming very soon though.

    So what will be out first ....JB for the iPad or the iPad2. I'm back to my original question. Should I wait for the JB for my 4.3 1st gen iPad or downgrade and JB it with what is available now? I'm guessing the JB for the iPad 1st gen is on the back burner.

    Apparently 4.3.1 untethered for iPad 1 will be first as they are already beta testing it. According to google it will only work on iPhone, iPod and iPad 1. iPad 2 untethered will be out ASAP.

    I've read some people have already found a jailbreak for 4.3.1 BUT it's a tethered one. Check the more recent threads here in hacking section and you can read about it plus I think someone also linked where to get it at. ;-)

    My question whenever I see a thread like this is

    DOES IT MATTER ?

    Tethered / untethered

    ask yourself this, how often do you actually turn your device off ?

    I had a iphone 3Gs, iphone 4 and currently ipad 1 untethered

    if you end up with a updated idevice you can still jailbreak, just remember to set it up fully before you take it away from your computer

    It does matter actually. Sometimes, it's not your choice whether the iPad reboots or shuts off on it's own. Perfect example some apps/tweaks in Cydia. Some require the iPad to reboot, which u never know until already in installation process. So if u not at home, then install some Cydia tweak, that causes iPad to reboot. Then u s$&@ outta luck until u get back home to pc. This is what a tethered method brings to the table. With untethered, I don't have to worry the least bit about that b.s. Happening on my device. Anyways tethered is usually always released b4 untethered. Just something to hold u down until untethered is released as untethers methods involves more details in user land in making.

    You are not required to reboot when Cydia tells you do to so. Just hit the Home Button, reopen Cydia and continue installing new apps. Once you are done, just restart once, or just wait with the reboot till your PC is nearby again.

    True. But my point is, that you don't suddenly have to reboot when you are out in the open. The reboot can be postponed, thus allowing you to still use the device in the meantime.

    Ok, I see what you saying then. Well that's definitely good news for tethered users. I don't think a lot of those users or people who want to go that route know that, yet. I'll add that info in next time someone chimes in about tethered or u tethered. You are right though.

    demandarin your point is vaild happy to admit that, but personally I don't update anything or install anything when i'm out the house anyway, I always wait till I'm near a pc to do any update as you never know if it's screw your idevice up anyway, even installing legitimate software from app store / cydia can cause's your ipad to have a conflict and not boot leaving your idevice out of use till you can get to a pc anyway, and if it's been days / week's since your last backup there's no telling how much info could be lost

    Personally I'll only use a tethered jailbreak when I'm desperate and I'm certain that a jb for the iOS I'm running wont be available for a while.

    It's happened to me on my 3Gs before, I was running 3.1.2 (from memory) and my phone suddenly froze on me and nothing I did made it work, my only option was to restore and i didnt have shsh saved, ended up going to 3.1.3. In this case if I was desperate I would have used thn tethered jb but i waited it out and didn't really wait long for the untethered jb.

    One thing I did learn from this is to always save my shsh which is pretty much the first thing I do now.

    But I will say tethered jb is sometimes very tempting...
