    I heard that the new QuickFreedom 1.2 will be able to use a NOR firmware. What does a NOR firmware do? I remember hearing about it when you are going from tethered to untethered without a restore. I think it said something about being able to change boot logos without a jailbreak as well. Could NOR be able to apply a firmware update without a complete re-jailbreak?

    A NOR Flash, in simple terms, allows you to convert from tethered -> semitethered or untethered without a restore. Although it has more implications from that, that's what it's used for.
