    It's currently a tethered boot only.

    Yes, the only iOS 5 jailbreak currently out is tethered. You will have to put the phone in DFU every time you shut if off and use the "Just Boot" option in Redsn0w.

    I'm waiting for an untethered jailbreak. I don't think it'll be long before we see one available..

    ugh, I had to learn what tethered meant the hard way.. will the untethered work with my gevey sim?

    I have an issue in extension of the comments of this thread; I made a custom IPSW and restored to it through iTunes, while the phone was in owned DFU, but it appears you can't make it past the introduction, when the phone is locked to another carrier... Even though I boot tethered.

    I use a gevey sim as well but you have to stay away from the normal installation with iTunes because when you update your baseband will update too. And that doesn't work, see the site: For an untethered jb you have to wait a little longer!

    Don't feel bad. I just wasted all morning learning what "tethered jailbreak" meant too.

    Gevey works, or I know Gevey Ultra works. But furious mod does not. So will have to dial 112 and do it manually.

    There should be a sticky on the untethered jailbreak.
