Finally it's untethered! But would a tethered jb hinder the performance of the iPhone? I just don't like how most all "cool" cydia apps (like multiflow) cannot function on the new ios! I think I might go back to the old ios until us iPhone 4 users can have a fully functional Siri!

I'm going to do this for two reasons and none of them have to do with Apple. One, I want my phone to think it's on wifi when it's really on 3G. AT&T locked down the iPhone and watching YouTube is terrible. The other is to tether. I shouldn't have to pay extra to tether my unlimited plan. The web on the phone shows up the same as web on my computer. f**k you AT&T...

Also...for those who are weary about jailbreaking, it's actually quite easy. Making a lot of modifications can definitely slow your iPhone down. But a tweak here and there isn't bad at all.

Just used this on my iPhone 4 and it worked perfect, no problems during the actual Jailbreaking, however it is really slow when loading sources to Cydia and the iBooks app comes up with a few errors.

I know theres a fix for the iBooks app out there but seeing as how I never really use it, I'm not all that bothered.
But excellent Untethered Jailbreak!!
