    All over the place I see errors and crap about this p.o.s. program. I tried it and dang near permanently broke my computer. Is there a way to use redsn0w without it?

    its nothign more than a dynamic library, it cannot hurt your computer unless you're on vista and you install it like a retard, the wrong way.

    yes, its needed. it has all sorts of methods used for connecting to the ipod that irecovery/redj0hnny both use.

    Great. Just great. I cannot wait for the untethered, hopefully it will not have to use this crap program.

    What exactly does this program do? Could I get rid of it after I jailbreak?

    Yeah you can get rid of it after the jailbreak, but you won't be able to restart your iPod if you do.
