    No, you can't untether it yet. You'll just have to wait...
    As your iPad is new you won't have 4.2b3 SHSH's saved so you may have a longer wait as you will need a jailbreak which is not based on the dev-team "backup plan"...

    Being tethered however should not cause you too many problems. Once the initial set of jailbreak apps are installed you hardly ever need to reboot your iPad, so the tethered nature of the jailbreak shouldn't be an issue...

    It is tethered. You must use redsn0w and select the "just boot tethered for now" option EVERY time you reboot your iPad.

    It is impossible to brick an iPad unless you physically damage the hardware.

    Afraid so. That's why it makes a lot of sense to read the instructions carefully and understand exactly what you are getting yourself into and whether any restriction on the current jailbreak is right for you. ;)

    Hopefully you wont find tethered too bad. Once you have the basic Cydia packages installed you almost NEVER have to reboot an iPad so you should not even notice it is tethered unless you run out of juice!

    Yeah, I was going to support that. Tethered isn't really a problem at all, just make sure you are always close to power.... Also force quitting backgrounding apps before putting the pad away really improves battery life.

    Wish there was a utility that would quit all the backgrounding apps at once.

    RemoveBG is the tweak you are looking for. Puts an sbsettings toggle that you can press to close everything... Or even better, trigger it as a gesture in Activator... very useful if you are about to run something you know is a memory hog...
