SemiTether 0.9.1 Released To Bring Some Great Improvements & Bug Fixes


Last week we’ve broke the news about the perfect solution for iOS 5 tethered jailbreak, a semi-tethered jailbreak developed by BigBoss which allows you to reboot your device while you’re away from your PC without full functionality. The semi-tethered jailbreak tool now updated to bring some great improvements & bug fixes.

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.

The SemiTether 0.9.1 now protects your iOS 5 notification center widgets and gives you the option to patch mobile safari so that it will work on the non-jailbreak reboot mode. Moreover, BigBoss is currently looking to fix the Mail.app problem too.

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.
