    tethered: needs the help of a computer to boot
    untethered: can boot on its own like its not jailbroken

    You can't jailbreak it just yet. Some people need to get patient for once, ffs. The Dev's need a bit of time to update their tools and by posting such f41lbr34k5 here you just push the views of the video.

    A tethered jailbreak is fast (to get out) but inconvenient, as you must attach your device to a computer and run a program on the computer to permit it to power cycle, or to reboot it.

    oooh, so like tethered is when you sync it into your itunes, and then start a program like limera1n or smth ? and untethered is when you run it inside the ipod ?

    With a non tethered jailbreak you can simply press the power button and restart at will. So when you are loading programs from Cydia and you are told you need to reboot, you can simply press the reboot and wait a minute or so and you are back at your home screen.

    With the tethered jailbreak, you'll need to connect the idevice to your computer ( put it in dfu mode) and run a program on your computer that transfers files to your device. Then wait up to three minutes for your device to boot up to it's home screen. You are then good to go until you either power it down or reboot it.

    The tether jailbreak is out now, the untethered jailbreak has now been put off until iOS 4.3.1 is out, which no one really knows when that will be...

    so untethered is the best jailbreaking method ? cause u dont need to connect it to a pc, just to reboot the device ?
