    does this mean it'll be tethered when it is released?

    Will it be untethered on ALL devices.

    is what is asked.

    Expect loopholes and enraged users everywhere.

    From the most things I've read, it is going to be untethered for all devices running 4.2.1

    It would be useless for Posixninja to release another tethered jailbreak, since the Limera1n exploit already jailbreaks every device on 4.2.1 tethered. The exploit would be wasted.

    If greenpois0n weren't untethered, it'd probably be released now. (It doesn't that long for the bootloaders to be patched.)
