Untethered is a must.
Untethered is the ONLY good JB......tethered is a bomb waiting to go off regardless of what they say.
Thumbs up for a unteathered one
I have been jailbroken on 4.2.1 for over two weeks now. The only time I actually needed to reboot my iPad is while installing critical software from Cydia--such as SBSettings, Backgrounder, etc.
I do reboot every few days just to clear things out... but those are planned and of course I make sure I reboot via RedSn0w. I have never once had my iPad spontaneously reboot or lockup to the point I had to reboot it. (I can't say the same thing about my iPhone.)
My iPhone is a different situation though: that is my phone. So I will not accept a tethered jb on that. And as I mentioned it seems more likely to need a reboot.
But if god forbid my iPad rebooted while away from my PC my iPhone can pretty much do just about anything my iPad can. I try to keep and apps I can loaded on both.
I think some of you are overreacting to the tethered nature. See if you can really go by a week without having to reboot, and I bet you will find you can. OTOH, part of the very reason I can do that is I have jailbreak apps that make it much easier to see what processes are loaded and kill them if my iPad feels sluggish or is not acting right. I don't have this need to reboot just to make things better.
Also remember it's a reboot, not a respring. You can still respring with the 4.2.1 jb... and I probably do that every other day or so, usually when updating something from Cydia. (I would not do any Cydia updates if I knew I was going to be far from my PC--I don't take that chance.)
I see where you are going Micheal and you are correct for the most part.....however it is those times that IF the iPad freezes and a reboot is the only way to fix it AND you are away from your computer.....that is the time when untethered JB is the better option.
It could happen.
For that reason alone is why I say untethered is the only good option.
yea untethered is the only way I will go so I will wait till it comes out im sure it will be a few weeks or so....I do miss my SBSettings though
i will wait for untethered, and continue with 3.2.2 for now.
Yep, still on 3.2.1 until an untethered comes out.
