    what's the difference between a 'normal' jailbreak (i.e with blackra1n) and this jailbreak

    A 'normal' jailbreak as you call it, is usually in iBoot level, which means that Apple can not patch it out using a firmware upgrade, they can only patch it out in a hardware upgrade as it is in Read Only Memory, that can not be changed once it leaves the factory.

    A userland jailbreak exploits the software/firmware on the phone and the exploit can usually be executed through visiting a website, these kind of exploits can be patched out using firmware upgrades, that's why it's vital to keep it until the next big firmware release.

    Ok..

    Let me have a go.

    Normal jailbreaks yes, are ussally iBoot. But so far for most of the devices bootrom exploits have made there way to the top(Apple can't patch these so the devices are "Pwned 4 Life")

    Userland jailbreaks are done from your actual iPod by going to a website, and example is Jailbreakme.com, but that is long gone.

    Userland jailbreaks aren't necessarily browser based; they're simply jailbreaks that employ an exploit that's at the same level as running applications. Comex's spirit is a userland jailbreak, but it is not a browser-based jailbreak.

    Then if it isn't comming from the browser then how exactly would he be implementing a 'userland' JB without the use of the browser...?

    through anything that runs at the user level. Terminal or SSH for example. Or any app that's developed.
