    Semi-tethered means you can boot without a computer, but it will be unjailbroken.

    Greenpoison isn't 'meant' to be semi-tethered, they never said anything about the payload.

    If it's "semi-untethered", that's probably something in between tethered and untethered.

    Exactly WHAT that something is, I don't know. I presume it'll be like Shawa says, can reboot without a computer but you need greenpois0n to reactivate the jailbreak.

    What I said is exactly what it is. It was first used on the iPt2G during the era of rslite.

    GreenPois0n will be fully untethered, NOT semi-tethered.

    I sure hope Greenpois0n isn't semi-tethered. Something inside of me says stay with tethered. lol

    But what if you connected to a computer after a reboot into no jailbreak? Would it still be jailbroken with all of the same settings, themes, etc.?

    Semi tethered means if you reboot the iPod, it will boot, but into an unjailbroken state. You will have all your content sync'd through iTunes.
    You can then connect back to your computer and rejailbreak, which will bring back all your jailbroken apps, themes etc.
    But GreenPois0n will not be semi-tethered.

    GreenPois0n will have a beta that will be semi-tethered, but the full thing will NOT BE TETHERED.

    Okay so WTF is GreenPoison anyways???? I've heard so much about it but what is it and who is working on it? What device/firmware is it supposed to unlock/jailbreak? and is GeoHot working on it?
