    iPod reboots to cable and iTunes screen. As soon as I connect to my PC it boots to lock screen. Can this be fixed? It's a 3rd gen IPT.

    if your ipod is a 3G its tethered
    1G and 2G users are untethered

    tethered means you have to run blackra1n whenever your turn off your touch. just wait till greenp0si0n comes out.

    Yeah, it's no fun :( You can work around it a bit by putting the iPod to sleep rather than turning it off, only installing software from Cydia when you're near a computer, and managing your battery life carefully, but there's no question that it's more of a hassle than it should be. There are persistent rumors of an impending untethered jailbreak for the 3G Touch and later 3GS models, but nothing has been released yet...

    geohot has already made an untethered jailbreak for the ipod touch 3g, and is releasing it as soon as apple releases 3.1.3

    That's the rumor, anyway. Of course, he's also sworn to stop even working on the iPhone OS due to the entitled morons bugging him on Twitter and his website, so it's hard to say what exactly is in the pipeline :(
