    Cool iOS 4.3.4 or iOS 5.0 b4 ?

    Hi,
    I have new iPhone with (out of the box) iOS 4.3.4,
    so No SHSH = No downgrade to 4.3.3

    As of now, No untethered jailbreak for 4.3.4, & probably never will !

    So,
    Is 4.3.4 "Tethered Jailbreak" better ? then say

    iOS 5.0 b4, "tethered jailbreak" ?
    Non developer = I have to use activation hack.

    If Apple releases 5.0 b5,
    Is it compulsary for me to update to 5.0 b5, or I can still use "b4" ?

    And, In a Tethered Jailbreak, (4.3.4 or 5.0 b4)

    If a reboot of iPhone is done (without PC),
    will the iPhone boot in "Non-jailbroken " state ?
    or will it go in recovery mode ?

    If you are not a developer, stay with iOS 4.3.x until iOS 5 exits beta.

    Also, you need to ask yourself, is it worth dealing with a tethered jailbreak? Think about the reasons you want to jailbreak, are they things that you cannot live without for a few months?

    Just adding my 2c -- as someone who played with both 3.0 and 4.0 betas, I distinctly do not want to go through that hassle again. I side with Olethros very much in that if you are not an app developer, you really don't want to be playing with the betas. They cause a lot of problems, force you to keep upgrading every few weeks when new ones come out, break things if you restore from backups, and ultimately don't provide a working upgrade path -- if you go from 4.3.4 through all of the 5.0 betas and then go to 5.0GM when it comes out, I can almost 100% guarantee you will see sporadic and hard to troubleshoot issues that will only be resolved by completely wiping the phone and setting it up as new.

    If you're looking for a headache and don't mind having your arms up to your elbows in your tech, then by all means -- 5.x beta away . If you just want your phone to work and like having a jailbroken device, stay at 4.3.x for the moment, even if it's tethered.
    The preceding forum post has been brought to you by the letter "N" and the number 42.

    sure its tethered but thats not to big of a deal for most people you know like your phone never dies much. and if you want to but not recommended. you can always downgrade from the betas. i put my iphone 3Gs on beta 4. got bored with it and a restore back to 4.3.4 or 4.3.5 is still possible. its just more work if you ask me though. but it works just to play with beta for a bit.
