    i may sound like a noob, cause i am, but what is the difference between a tethered version and a untethered version of the jailbreak?

    like what benefits exactly does one have over another?

    Tethered - Slower, and has to be connected to the computer in order to reboot
    Untethered - Faster, and can reboot on its own.

    With untethered you don't need a computer to boot into jailbroken fw.

    tethered requires you to plug into your computer and run a program for it to boot. untethered doesnt require anything to boot. the ipod can boot itself.

    damn 2 people posted before me. lol

    Untethered owns, Tethered doesn't.
    Untethered has everything Tethered does, but it's not tethered to the comp...

    I don't know where this stupid rumor started, but tethered/untethered firmwares shouldn't have any difference in speed; it's your imagination.

    That's what I thought too, but I thought I would be flamed with things like "stupid noob", and "wow your stupidity amazes me"
    lol so I didn't speak up
