    Ok here's the deal!

    Tether- noun
    1. a rope, chain, or the like, by which an animal is fastened to a fixed object so as to limit its range of movement.

    So, knowing this the animal in our situation is our Ipod Touches!

    Tethered= We must repatch every time you connect to your computer. That is why those codes mus be inputted what that is doing is having your Ipod pass the Sigchecks.

    What are sigchecks?
    Sig checks are a precaution against people like us by apple. Every time your ipod is turning on, right before your Apple logo appears, the sig checks check for our custom Firmware!

    Well why didnt it do this in the IPT1G's Tallbus?
    I believe (from some research) that the new processor ARM_11 is the new thing that is asking us to pass sig checks. The 1G did not, and never checked what we had.

    So....Why cant they get untethered?
    This is a shaky subject, but basically, the Dev Teams are having trouble finding a lower level exploit so that they can pass the sig checks without having to reapply the patch so that the sig checks see it as normal Firmware every time.

    Ok, I get it. So untethered basically is?
    Well, it would be that they found a way to pass the sig checks everytime, with some kind of whole in security. So you wouldnt need to connect to the computer everytime you off your Ipod

    OMG WHATS THIS SEMI-TETHERED!?!?!?!?
    Ok, so here's the deal Semi-tethered is custom firware, but it stops the use of a computer, How? Well when you don't apply the patch all unsigned programs wont run, but you can still get onto your device fine, if you do apply the patch it wil be fully jailbroken!

    If anyone found this helpful...you may want this stickied.

    Thanks guys,

    Tallbus

    You are going to have to follow one of the tutorial threads on the Redsn0w subforum; they all do work. It's just a matter of trial and error for you now, I guess. Good luck.
