Under CARRIER row, you'll see either MB or MC and then some numbers.
If it's MB, he's safe
If it's MC, the fourth and fifth digits (numbers) represent the week when the phone was produced. It was either week 40 or 41 when Apple switched over to the 'new MC' model making it tethered. Hope that makes sense...

If ur that concerned about a tethered JB, just wait for comex to give the okay. Patience is a virtue!!! :-p

Hmm whats all working on 4.2.1 as far as jailbreak goes....we need a list like they did with 4.0

If your Cydia icon is white, then you need to run redsnow again and tell it to boot you tethered only.
As for what works from Cydia? I can tell you grip does not!!! It Bricked my iPad. I had to reformat and StarT over.

OK... here's a question I don't recall having ever seen asked. Maybe because it's never been relavent until now.
Let's say I have a device I JB that's tethered for now. Is it the general concensus that when a future JB becomes available that does NOT require tethering, that I would simply be able to run that JB and not have to deal with re-installing everything and the device would simply become bootable w/o tethering or would I have to start all over again from scratch? Granted, I have Pkgbkup but I just want to know.
Anybody know for sure or want to rip through my logic and tell me why this wouldn't be the case?
FYI... this more personal intellectual curiosity. I generally wait a month or so for everything to stabilize before I jump in. I'm fine with what I have but I have an older 3Gs, a 2G, a 4 and an iPad. I'm more excited about getting everything on an even keel than the feature set proper. I have most of the same features now with JBs anyway.

When can we expect an untethered JB for iPhone 4's?

So ur asking, hypothetically, if one were to JB 4.2.1 right now with an ip4 making it tethered; and then the untethered JB came out, hypothetically, next week. Would they lose all their JB apps/info from the tethered JB if they upgraded to the untethered JB?
If that's ur question, it depends on the 'type' of JB created for the untethered. Obviously, a custom FW tether would erase everything. A JB allowing us to keep all of our apps/info (like blackra1n, jailbreakme 2.0, limera1n, greenpois0n) would just give us the option to reinstall Cydia. Reinstalling Cydia will not remove ur current JB apps BUT those current JB apps will not appear under Packages anymore.
Hope I'm accurate regarding this and hope that helps!

If, for S&G (!), u open up limera1n and reinstall Cydia, you will see what I mean. BTW, greenpois0ns 'Loader' will not let u do this...
