    I really want to jailbreak my iPhone 4. It's currently running iOS 5.0.1.

    I know that there is a 5.0.1 tethered jailbreak available, via redsn0w 0.9.9b9. I was wondering if I should go ahead and do this. But on the other hand, I know Pod2g is working on an untethered solution.

    What would you recommend, doing it now, or waiting? Is it possible for me to go ahead and jailbreak now, and then "switch" to the untethered version without losing data/restoring?

    I don't want to jailbreak now and then have to jailbreak again later, losing all my stuff.

    If you dont want to lose everything, then wait for the untethered.

    No reason you should lose "all" your stuff, worst that can happen when "IF" anything goes wrong is that you need to restore and restoring from backup should bring all your "stuff" back.

    You can go head and Jailbreak now if the untethered part doesn't bother you, and then once the untethered JB is out, chances are you just have to re-run the tool and will be done.

    Sorry to bump up this thread. I have an iPhone 4 as well with io5, and wishing to do the tethered jailbreak. My first question is that if i do this, i will choose the baseband preservation jailbreak right with custom ipsw? And my other question is that, say I wish to restore it to factory settings with stock ipsw, will i be able to do that after doing this jailbreak?

    Thank you in advance for your help guys. :)

    If you're already on iOS 5, then you don't need to preserve baseband. Just do the regular jailbreak, followed by "just boot tethered"

    1. Answer to your first question, you don't need to do any of that customs firmware, just jailbreak it with redsn0w and you should be done within 5 mins.
    2. Yes.
