    Hi!
    I just came back from holiday and received the wonderful news that redsn0w is no longer tethered. At this point: Thanks to the Dev Team.

    My problem: I see about 2000 Threads telling me how to make untethered, but they all seem to need a restore. Isn't there a way to make this untethered without losing my data?

    Thanks a million,
    lionstarr

    Basically, you just Shift+Click on Restore after putting your iPod in DFU, and select the 29mb .ipsw flash only file...You'll have to find it on Google or something, try using this keyword:
    Code:
    NOR_flash_untethered.ipsw

    Ok, I found the file. Do I have to do anything different than Restoring it to my iPod Touch holding Shift while clicking restore?

    I'm on a mac.

    Yours,
    lionstarr

    P.S. Why does it still say I will loose my data, when I Shift-Click Restore?

    Because a restore will take away your data...

    you can untether it without a restore ill upload a link:

    here it is: http://www.[PIRACY.mu].com/?d=NVZK1PUQ

    It will say that, because iTunes does not know you are only flashing your iPod. As long as your ipsw is 29mb you won't lose your stuff. You might have to follow some iRecovery commands though...

    Oh sh*t! I did the Nor_flash_untethered.ipsw method (clicking alt instead of shift, cause shift does not work) and it didn't work (itunes error 6). Now restoring to original firmware.
    sh*t!
