    I installed a bestskinsever the other day and had to shut off my touch, usually I just let it fall into sleep mode but had to shut it off the other day as I was dealing with water and applying the skin. When I shut it off all my apps were gone and I had to reinstall blackrain/cydia etc and then reload all the apps.

    Is this what is mean by tethered that when it shuts off I lose everything?

    Is this fixed now?

    If it is fixed, should I be shutting off my touch or is sleep mode unharmful to battery life etc.

    I believe I am running 3.12 if this makes a difference

    Well, if you restored, then you lose everything, but you're not supposed to restore. When you get the screen with the iTunes logo and the USB plug, you're supposed to run blackra1n press 'make it ra1n' again.

    what, go to the blackrain website and run it again or somehow get to the app from my touch?

    Will that keep all my apps or will I have to sync again?

    Well, download blackra1n from the website again and run it on your computer, you won't lose anything. It'll just be as if you turned it off and turned it back on.
