    Default Upgrading to a new Jailbreak
    Hello all, I am relatively new to the jailbreak scene, I jailbroke my iphone 4 iOS 5.1 about a month ago using reds0w with the tethered jailbreak, and I was wondering what the process is, or how do I go about upgrading it to the untethered jailbreak whenever it gets released?

    We wont know for sure until it is released. When the last untether came out it was as simple as installing a package in cydia.

    Let's hope it comes like that again. Before, I remember that you had to restore to get the untether if you were tethered jailbroken already

    Well in the 4.3.X untether days you could run a new redsnow over the current jailbreak to untether. On 4.2.1 people could run greenpoison over the tethered jailbreak to untether. I dont remember when it was required to restore to do it.

    I remember reading that somewhere...But, oh well, I can't say for sure because I've never had a tethered jailbreak (except for 5.0.1).
