For that, right click on "redsn0w" and go to properties > compatibility and click the latest one. Then go to the task manager (ctrl + alt + delete) and go to redsnow > right click it > set affinity > uncheck "CPU 0"

It means every time you turn your phone off or reboot it you have to plug it into your computer and jailbreak it again or it won't turn on...

i have jailbroken my phone before and for certain things like in winterboard i think it was called it resets if you change something...
would i have to plug it back into the pc if it resets the springboard like in winterboard?

Thats not exactly correct. When you install winterboard from cydia you will have to reboot meaning you need to plug it back in. When changing themes you ony require a respring so there's no need to plug back in...

Excellent, that's good timing for when I'll have my iPhone 4 for my actual carrier, no more waiting for an unlock. The waiting shall end. And an untethered jailbreak to come with it a few days later. That's good timing for the Dev team.

well its an endless waiting game, what happens when the next firmware is released and the one after?

if your happy staying on the most recent un lockable firmware then great but that would suck..

some dont need unlock but still dont upgrade firmware because of the jailbreak and some of the Cydia apps they pay for or cant go with out
