    Well, I recently patched to the RUN RS jailbreak. Here is what I have to say.

    I attempted with 2 tools.

    First Chris Stroud's RedTool:
    Don't get me wrong, this is a fine piece of software, and with a few bug fixes, it could be great, BUT, as of now I would not suggest using this, it still has a few bugs that desperately need fixing.

    Second dancool999's QuickTether:
    I would reccomend this HIGHLY! I have not encountered one bug with this, and listen, it automatically boot's your ipod every time you plug it in in DFU/Recovery mode.

    You can use a tutorial if you want, I just like GUI's.

    Now, the RUN RS jailbreak itself:
    Pros:
    • Quicker boot
    • Dongle's can be created
    • More Portable
    • Less bugs than Semi-tether
    • No ned to enter DFU
    Cons:
    • If you do not have a dongle...it's just a tether
    • The GUI's and tutorials aren't 100% working for everyone
    • Still some issues with bugs

    Conclusion:
    Although I am enjoying my Ipod RUN RS Jailbroken, and it is easier to boot etc. I dont see what is so different than a tether. Especially if you don't have a dongle or TI-84 calculator. Just my 2 cents, feel free to flame, compliment, or input freely.

    also all these ipsws that are NEEDED for these tutorials seem to be bringing the banhammer down on many ignorant users.

    Quicktether is RedTool. Dan ripped the code out of RedTool and used it in his application. Don't use Quicktether.

    Actually that's a rumor, and I'm not giving bad press to redtool, in fact I support it.

    Remove the "use this instead of that" and it's a great post...

    So...
    If I don't have a dongle, and don't have another iPodT/iPhone it's basically useless? (I got a 1-click-boot script)

    No it's not. It is proven.
