    ok. so there are a lot... and i mean A LOT of people who don't understand what tethered and untethered are. people are getting tethered confused with untethered, and vice versa...

    tethered is where we are right now, with the having to reapply patches...

    untethered is where we want to be, permenant jailbreak.

    a more proper term is persistant and non-persistant...

    persistant=untethered

    non-persistent=tethered.
