    I don't want to sound dumb but I wanted to finally jailbreak my phone. I really want to use the tethering option. But I went on iClarified but I see something that says tethering and untethering jailbreak. When I read the different forums I see it to, what is the difference. Also what application do you use to tether i see something about tetherme and mywii (something like that) It seem like like this is getting alittle confusing.:confused:

    This thread may give you a better idea:

    Jailbreak FAQ and commonly use Terminology + Guides

    Internet Tethering and Jailbreaking tethered/untethered are not the same thing.

    Tethered jailbreak means you will not be able to restart your phone without plugging it into a computer and running some software. Usually this is only necessary for early versions of a new jailbreak. You want an untethered if at all possible.

    This is totally different and unrelated to "tethering" which is in reference to sharing your iPhone's internet connection with another device.
