    I just jailbroke my ipodtouch 2g on the 3.1.2 firmware using blackra1n. I've heard blacka1n is unthethered meaning you have to jailbreak it again (which is a quick step when using blackra1n) every time u turn it off or it runs out of batteries but I can still see all my jailbroken applications and they still function fine.

    I have IPT 3g with 3.1.2 jailbroken with blackra1n as well. Confirm, I just rebooted the touch and rejailbreak with blackra1n, all my apps are there.
    tenthering mean you have to reboot and rejailbreak every single time you turn it off and back on or reboot. Or else, itune will think the touch is in recovery mode.

    I have no idea what you two just said, but I do sure want a jailbroken ipod touch so I can play those awesome apps in cydia.

    so if I get a ipod touch 2nd gen with 3.1.2, I can still jailbreak it? does this work on any version or just 32gb and 64.

    2nd gen? Don't you mean the 3rd gen (32 and 64 GB)?

    In any case, currently, all ipod touches can be jailbroken on 3.1.2, but the 3rd gen 32&64 GB, and the "new" 8GB models with the MC model numbers have to be tethered.

    Jailbreaking iPod Touch

    tethered is when, if your ipod is jeailbroken, and it turns off somehow, or it ran out of battery, you need to plug your ipod back into your computer every time you boot it up. you will have to open the program used to jailbreak it to make your ipod turn on. most of the time you keep the ipod on sleep anyway.
    untethered is when it will turn on and off like a regular ipod, and you wont have to worry about anything i said above.
    the jailbreak for every ipod except for the third generation ipod touch are untetherd jailbreaks. so if you have the third gen, and your gonna jailbreak it, just keep it on and put it on sleep when you dont use it.
    yes, you will still have all your other apps and they will all still work. ;)

    Blackra1n is tethered and will always be tethered for the iPod Touch 3G.

    If you have the 3G 8GB MC model, you cannot untether it. Also, when you run blackra1n, it will not delete all the apps.

    no you are all wrong, tethering is using your phones internet connection on your computer. a tethered jailbreak is where you have to rerun blackra1n every time you turn off your ipod and turn it back on. untethered jailbreak means that you are fine.

    is it possible to install applications on non-jail broken touch 3rd gen. ?

    they are all located in the iTunes folder, so can the applications itself be modified so it appears like you downloaded them yourself ?

    no u cant. only itunes is capable of installing apps on an unjailbroken ipod. itunes has access to the filesystem of unjailbroken ipods. only itunes, and you cant hack itunes to gain ur own access to it. you have to jailbreak.

    Tethered jailbreak sucks

    I've just blackrained (whatever) my iPhone 3GS... I've just found out I have to re-run this thing every I shut my iPhone off... well... can I just restore my iPhone using 3.1.2 original firmware, the one my phone came with?

    What about the 32Gb models with the MC model number?
    I have researched a lot and have found some people having problems doing the tethered JB on the 3g itouches

    3GS Jailbreak tethered/untethered Depends on S/N

    The ability to have a tethered vs untethered jailbreak using blackra1n on a 3GS appears to have to do with WHEN your 3GS was manufactured.

    For earlier 3GS's (prior to WW40 in 2009,) if you run blackra1n to jailbreak, you will be OK in the event of a power cycle.

    For later 3GS's (after WW40,) the blackra1n jailbreak will work, but if you power cycle, your phone will be bricked until you connect to a computer and re-run the blackra1n jailbreak. No loss of data, but your phone is completely unusable until you re-jailbreak.

    Here's a video from wahoofan5 on the serial number thingy:


    Oh, here's a much better thread explaining all this:

    U need to run BlackraiN so that it can help it boot whenever you restart your IPT.
