Im tethered jailbreak using redsnow. Have a few issues (none important ones). My reminders icon changed to the calender icon w/o the date. Also I can not get any notifications to show up on my lockscreen Any ideas why? Under notifications I have it ticked to include on lockscreen.

I've been using 4.3.5 tethered jb, and have just upgraded to 5.0. I used a Mac to jb with redsnow, but regularly use windows. I'd like to know if it's fine to use redsnow 0.9.9b3a to boot up tethered? or strictly stick to the version the I jb'd with

I'm on iOS 5 and JB with redsn0w and after my phone froze once when I installed sbsettings I'm currently having 0 issues with my phone. I haven't added many tweaks however (mainly due to needing sleep ha). Hope everyone has it figured out

This is a hugely stupid question, however what's the difference between tethered versus untethered?
Is it just the fact one you do not need a cable?
Also on a side note does anyone know if PDANet will work with iOS 5?
I doubt they have updated it so just curious.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't previous versions of redsn0w allow you to reapply an updated jailbreak without the need to restore first. Eg. going from tethered to untethered? I'm 99% sure you can, so may as well play with the JB now, then reapply untethered upon release.

I've used another tethered redsn0w jb for 4.2.1 then when the untethered released I rejailbroke without restoring with no problems. Now if that's how I was supposed to do it, I'm not sure, but I had no problems.
For those of you who have upgraded and JB I found this link helpful:

I'm just gonna wait. No rush. Did fine without it for so long.

Is it safe to update 3GS 4.2.1 04.26.08 ? And will it be untethered?
10-13-2011, 07:49 AM #37
I'm getting an "unknown error occurred (11)" in iTunes. I deleted 184.108.40.206 gs.apple.com from the hosts file thinking that is what the Dev-Team meant when saying (and your hosts file cannot be pointing to Cydia’s servers due to the new blob nonce mechanism they’re using in iOS5). Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions on how to get past this?

Untethered if your 3GS has the old bootrom otherwise tethered for now. Wait for an untether.
If you don't know which bootrom you have, try this:
How to Check iPhone 3GS New Bootrom / Old Bootrom (iBoot) Version | Redmond Pie
What's happening is that you're using a tethered JB, but not tethering.
To fix, shutdown the phone, go into DFU mode and use Redsn0w's "Extras-> Just Boot" option.
You'll have to do this every time you reboot or reset the phone, until a new untethered Jailbreak comes out. This is why "tethering sucks". ;(

Usually, just letting Cydia sit there for a few minutes, and then closing and restarting Cydia helps.
The issue with installing a few tweaks is that many/most tweaks aren't fully compatible with 5.0 yet.
And the default Winterboard and SBSettings definitely aren't compatible. Probably you shouldn't install ANY tweaks until Cydia is behaving stably and you have added the "BigBoss Beta" repository and the new Winterboard/SBSetting/etc from there.
