I have an iPhone 4 and I have the new iOS 5.0.1 firmware installed and heard about the new jailbreak that is untethered. I wanted to try it out and had a few questions for people that know about jailbreaks.

My first question is about how I should jailbreak it. Is it better to jailbreak it tethered then to install the thing in Cydia that makes it untethered? Or should I jailbreak it untethered and just be done? My last question is whether or not it is important to restore your iPhone before jailbreaking it?

I believe it would be more efficient to just jailbreak it untethered.
There's no need to restore your iPhone before jailbreaking it

Ok thanks, I was unsure whether or not the untethered jailbreak was less buggy than untethering via Cydia. The untherthered jailbreak seems to be more reliable to me so I'll probably use that type of jailbreak.

Most tools have been updated for the untether so you would have to specifically look for one of the tools that used the tethered version as if you get the updated programs they are already hooked up with the untether.
