    Hello, I am on the tethered jailbreak and am wondering if I can upgrade to untethered and then restore from backup. So I am asking if doing this would take the jailbreak off? Thanks to anyone who replies.

    If iTunes restores the device itself using an ipsw and it uses the original then yea it'll undo the jailbreak. Isn't that what the restoring backup thing does? I've never paid attention before

    So, you're saying that if I back up my tethered then I will be able to restore to it just fine?

    This seems confusing but I'm assuming you mean to back up your music/movies/apps and then make your iPod untethered and put your music/movies/apps back on....
