It jus says update fail on my phone! To restore I jus put in shut down mode and restore w iTunes? Sorry kinda new at this lol tks
I would plug into laptop or computer and open iTunes if it does not auto open. Then press "Restore". It will update and you can then re-jailbreak if you'd like, and restore from backup etc.

Thread moved to the iPhone Jailbreak section.

Jailbreaking 'breaks' the OTA (Over-The-Air) update. You have to connect you device to iTunes and update/restore that way.

What do you mean? So they don't have to rejailbreak with the untethered? That would be nice.
It's happened before, you've been able to run Redsn0w over a tethered jailbreak in the past, to make it un-tethered. Corona was also released with the last jailbreak which un-tethered previously tethered users by simply installing a .deb package from Cydia :)
