What is this 'tethered jailbreak' I keep reading about?
I'm unaware :-S
It means that you have to have your ipad connected to your computer to jailbreak, and need to re-run the jailbreak everytime you restart your ipad.
Going to JB my iPad when the untethered option is available and starting to get a little impatient Whats taking so long, does it normally take so long after an update before the JB is ready or is there some particular problem with 4.2.1. Not complaining, I understand it must take a lot of work to JB but just wondering if this is a normal wait.
WOW! Are you serious? Why would people even run this 'tethered jailbreak' and go through all this?
Just wait for another release with untethered.
After reading the second post... I guess I'm going to wait.
It's really not that bad. A few reboots when installing JB stuff but in reality it is like an iPhone where you literally never have to turn it off. Just do not be irresponsible with the device and charge it when you can!
It is still annoying even reboot is less frequent, especially when after jailbreak you need to install some Cydia software. But more importantly I feel the current JB is still not stable from my experience. I think the untethered JB will also fix many of the bugs in the previous version.
I JB'd with redsnow about 2 weeks ago and have installed lots of apps and tweaks and I have never had to reboot or run redsnow since.
I have also had no issues with stability either.
What happens when you reboot while mobile? Do you just lose your JB, or is the device unusable?
Youbjust lose JB until you redsnow again IPad is still fully usable.
I just got my iPad and I'm so tempted to jailbreak it grr
Not always true with this redsn0w jailbreak. If you install system level mods like mobile substrate, it gets stuck at the Apple logo until you rerun redsn0w.
I've had mine jailbroken since this firmware came out. The tethered jailbreak has only been a problem a couple of times.
And considering it's been a while since it came out, I'm glassed I jailbroke it
Well if you really want to be pedantic about.
But how often would the average user need to do this ? Personally I haven't had to yet.
A lot of people like to install Winterboard for themes, which uses mobile substrate. SBSettings and Activator are other commonly used JB apps that use mobile substrate. In fact, I'd say features that use mobile substrate are the reason I jailbreak. Obviously, your mileage does vary.
Thanks for clarifying, I knew about this but not specifically what apps used MS.
On the other hand it has been weeks sense I have rebooted my iPad.
No it isn't. Safari doesn't work.
Im having trouble also.
I do the whole JB, tether and all. And when it finalizes, I open Cydia, and it runs for maybe 5 seconds and closes. My Safari also doesnt open.
Help would be appreciated.
Did u run redsnow twice?
excuse my ignorance, what version of redsnow?
I already have an ipad jailbreaked (3.1) and jailbreked another with 3.2
I'm using itunes 9.2.1
We got an ipad for one of our parents, and when I connect it to the mac, it says I need to upgrade itunes to 10.1. I believe updating will conflict with my other jailbreaked ipads.
Do other browsers work like icab?
