    I have a tethered jailbroken iPhone 4 and everytime it dies due to low-batt discharge and I plug it i to recharge, it turns on automatically before I get the chance to jailbreak it. As a result, all my files get deleted. How do I get around this?

    I hate to point out the obvious, but don't let your phone die. There is another reason not to let it die other than to prevent losing your JB. The battery does NOT like being completely drained. Its a lithium polymer battery that works best if you keep topping it off. Either get a back-up battery or have a charger on-hand and charge when you have the opportunity and you should be fine.

    Hawk, oh I know. I've been careful not to let my phone be drained of battery. It's been months since the last time it happened. But the other night, I went out drinking and woke up late the next day to a discharged phone :(

    Maybe invest in a batter case that will keep it going longer?

    When her phone dies and she connects to a PC, it immediately starts booting and she loses her stuff. I haven't ever used a tethered boot, so if she's doing something wrong, let her know.

    I just assumed the OP understood the requirements of running a Tethered jailbreak....
    Every time you lose Power or ReBoot your iDevice you need to run "Just Boot" in Redsn0w( or any equivalent tool) to complete the boot sequence..... my point is, if the OP does this and still has "missing files" this is a new one on me...:)
