    tethered you have to run jailbreak again everytime you turn off device

    untherther means you dont have to do the above ^

    You mean 'untethered' Not "untherther"

    It essentially means in short, each time your iPod is shut off completely, you need to run the jailbreak program to boot your iDevice. Everything will still be there.

    Teathered means===not complete, in our case everytime you respring your iPod it will lose the JB. (Unteathered=complete)

    Lol respring. I respring my iPod twice a day without losing a jailbreak, you probably meant reboot.
