Ive noticed that since I jailbroke my iPhone on one computer that I can not just tethered boot it from another. Am I doing something wrong? I copied the whole torrent file from the other computer onto a geek stick and moved it over to another laptop. When I go to just boot it gets to the point of holding down the home button and normally it stops around 8 seconds but on the other computer it just counts all the way down and then says a device is not connected. Any thoughts?

The PC you are booting with must have DFU and Recovery Mode device drivers installed. The standard way to do that is to install iTunes as the drivers are embedded in there.

It works like a champ now. Thanks for the info. Now I can just bring a netbook with me instead of a full sized laptop.
