We're talking iOS 6.1?

You want to go from ethered to UNtethered?

(08 Feb '13, 21:33) eYe-I-aïe eYe-I-a%C3%AFe's gravatar image

I dunno how you can be tethered.

Do you have a backup?

If not, do so.

If so, I'd start everything from scratch.

and i dont know how its tethered . i downloaded the Evas0in untethered jailbreak and it worked fine. i could turn my device on and off anytime i wanted. i downloaded ifile, sbsettings/activator, localiapstore, and was trying to dwonload displayout but my ipod froze in the middle of the download so i force rebooted it by holding the power and home button. when it turned back on none of my jailbreak features worked. i cant even open up cydia.

Reboot and hold volume up till springboard. Launch cydia and remove recent installed apps. reboot to return to JB state.

Well, he seems to be saying that he is always in safe mode, as far as I understand his last comment:

i force rebooted it by holding the power and home button. when it turned back on none of my jailbreak features worked

But then he adds:

i cant even open up cydia

So what happens when you boot tethered?

thats what i thought at first but at the top it doesnt say "safe mode" and i cant touch the status bar to respring. i cant open ifile, cydia, or activator and sbsettings doesnt work. plugged my ipod back into the computer and opened the jailbreak file. i clicked jailbreak and it started injecting files but then came up "error: your device appears to be using a semi-tether jailbreak.please use the evasi0n untether package from cydia to untether instead." so i dont know what happened or what to do.

and i dont know how to reboot tethered

When you first jailbreak with evasi0n, the first new icon you see is not cydia, this is new, you had to click on this file, you remember? Can't ou locate that file now?

I think I'm starting to understand this semi-tether thing...

(08 Feb '13, 22:12) eYe-I-aïe eYe-I-a%C3%AFe's gravatar image

evasi0n works differently then previous jailbreak tools. It works in two times. First, it JB tether. Then, when you click on the new icon, before cydia, it kind of "untether" the JB, and I guess your dowload somewhat screwed something up at that level. As for the solution, I'm not there yet. sorry.

(08 Feb '13, 22:15) eYe-I-aïe eYe-I-a%C3%AFe's gravatar image

when i reboot my device the file reappears on my springboard. and when i open it it quickly exits out. i can delete it from my springboard but everytime i rebbot my device it reappears.

(08 Feb '13, 22:15) jandersont21 jandersont21's gravatar image

you're talking about the evasi0n file?

(08 Feb '13, 22:17) eYe-I-aïe eYe-I-a%C3%AFe's gravatar image

i believe so. its the app that appears with an arrow pointing left. its named "jailbreak"

(08 Feb '13, 22:20) jandersont21 jandersont21's gravatar image

Yup. That is a new issue I'd say as, again, this JB tool works in two times. Maybe someone else would be better "equipped" than me to help you out at that point. Else, I'm afraid your best bet would be to start from scratch. Good luck pal

If it is one of the modern userland jailbreaks, Corona (5.0), Absinthe (5.1.1), or evasi0n (6.0-6.1), you can "undo" (rather disable) the jailbreak by uninstalling the appropriate package in Cydia (see the package description as it will confirm that you will be "unjailbreaking" your device).
