Last week’s SemiTether jailbreak utility from Cydia, yes, brings semi-tethered jailbreak but it was very limited. It didn’t allow you to open Safari or the Mail.app once you do the reboot. It also made some problems, even to me, when adding some jailbreak widgets to iOS 5 notification center.
BigBoss today released a new version of iOS 5 semi-tethered jailbreak known as SemiTether 0.9.1 which finally now supports Safari working on non-tethered jailbreak mode. After updating, you can open Safari when your device is rebooted.
However, the update brings more and more fixes. Full changelog:
- Much more stable with new mobile substrate
- Can patch safari so it works in the non-jailbreak reboot mode
- App to monitor the status of your semitether and reapply. Check after cydia installs.
In case you haven’t installed SemiTether on your iOS 5 device yet, I recommend you do now. It’s a life saver in some situations. You should follow our previous guide posted here to install SemiTether 0.9.1 directly on your iOS device.
