Can someone please tell me the pros and cons of a tethered jailbreak.... Should they be avoided?
They are not to be avoided, as they work well (as long as you are near your computer when you want to turn on or reboot your iPad. But - as of right now, there is an untethered jail break for the iPad, so you don't even need a tethered one.
I guess I need to ask - where are you reading about a tethered jail break? Cause there isn't one, currently, for the iPad...
Well really I was asking because I read u can still jailbreak ipod 4 even if iOS 6.1.3. And I've seem a few people say to avoid them all together so I wasn't sure what to do.... I know this more for iPads stuff but you all are so helpful here I was hoping someone would know
I'm not sure where you are reading that, but its not true.
There are no tethered jailbreaks for the iPad2, 3 or 4 as things stand, and there aren't any on the horizon that we know of. 6.1.3 on iPad cannot be jailbroken yet.

I'm talking about a iPod 4
Right, my bad. I just assumed being an iPad forum you would be talking about an iPad and didn't read your comment properly. You were talking about an iPod Touch 4.
It's simple. If you have to reboot the device, then you need to use your PC to reboot it if you want the jailbreak to operate on a tethered jailbreak.
If you don't think you can live with that, then don't jailbreak it. If you don't know, then give it a go and see. If you don't like it, then restore it. Only you know whether you reboot your iPod regularly enough for this to be a problem for you.
