    I know this may sound noobish and all, but I need to know the difference between making a normal IPSW and a NOR-Only one. Is it simplier, quicker, or cleaner? Please respond and yes I have googled it and searched IPTF

    the NOR-only IPSW is only a fraction of a full firmware file... when u run this IPSW, it will flash the NOR, which will (for the tethered jailbreakers going untethered and for custom boot logos) will allow you to make a change to the some of the core files without having to fully restore.. again like upgrading from tethered to untethered, or for adding a custom boot logo..

    Remember to say that the Fusion Dev Team Helped u!

    if you're not Tethered already, a NOR Flash will be of no help to you, and many more people have problems with a NOR Flash than using a full Firmware.

    True, but I'm saying it's not going to do anything if he's not already jailbroken yet.

    Oh, then go ahead.
    Use redTool though, it works great.
