More difficult? True. Up until today, that is. From Sept. 2012 until yesterday, the only option has been a "tethered" jailbreak meaning that if you have to restart your iPhone it had to be connected to the computer to maintain your jailbreak.
Now, this new tool gives us an untethered jailbreak. The only way to remove the jailbreak on this one is to update the software or to do a factory restore.
