    So I have the bootrom exploit from limera1n on my iPod touch...does this mean now if there is an update I can just click update or do I need to dfu restore like normal? Plus if I wanted to get rid of the jailbreak what would I do since it's permanently jailbroken?

    You are back to normal when restore but no jb you need to wait for the tool to jailbreak you again. To get rid of your bootrom you need to send it into apple where they can tell you jailbroke, pay a fee and get a new one.

    I think you are a bit confused.

    Bootrom jailbreaks imply that the iPod can be jailbroken forever on any firmware that comes out. This does not mean that its permanently jailbroken though.

    If you update your ipod, you will lose the jailbreak and have to re-jailbreak (provided the tools are available) each time.

    To get rid of the jailbreak, you simply need to perform a restore in iTunes

    Edit: iBricked beat me to the punch...info still applies

    Sorry I missed my brain a bit. Bootrom means that the hardware exploit cannot be patched and you can jailbreak every firmware as long as there is a jb tool. When you update you are not jailbroken at all, but some small detectable info may be left

    So what's the point of a bottom exploit then?

    With a bootrom exploit, jailbreak developers dont need to find a new exploit for every firmware, they just need to update the tools. This means that every firmware will be jailbreakable, and usually they can be jailbroken very quickly after release.

    It can't be patched by a firmware update, the tool will just need a simple fast patch to enable it to work on future iOS versions.

    can't be patched, the tool just need to be updated to use that same exploit on the newer IOS version, limera1n bootrom exploit is tethered, the reason the tool makes it untethered is because it also users a 2nd userland exploit which is patchable so we might only receive a tethered jailbreak next time

    True, but Comex has a lot of Kernel and userland exploits on hold he will use for major updates like iOS 4.2
