An untethered jailbreak is a type of jailbreak where your device does not require you to reboot with a connection to an external device capable of executing commands on the device. http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Untethered_jailbreak

Tethered means being basically "attached" to your computer in a way; you must boot your device by running code on it (via the dock connector) to make use of an exploit.

untethered means the device doesn't need to be connected to a computer when it reboots. tether needs to be connected.

Well it doesn't need to be connected, it's just that when it boots it won't be jailbroken...

When it boots with no jailbreak it's SEMI TETHERED.
