BigBoss today released an interim solution for iOS 5′s tethered jailbreak that allows users to use their devices to some extent after rebooting. This solution is very handy if your device that is on tethered jailbreak gets rebooted when you are away from your home and you cannot connect it to RedSn0w for tethered boot (in case you don’t know, it can make your device useless until you connect it with RedSn0w for tethered boot). With SemiTether you can now use your device even after it reboot. Read on
After installing SemiTether you will be able to make calls, send text messages, use stock and third party apps. Please note that Safari and Mail.app won’t work in Semi-Tethered mode.
