While waiting for full untethered jailbreak for iOS 5, here is a very good deal for a half solution to that.

BigBoss has released Semitethered Jailbreak, a new Cydia package that lets you reboot your iOS 5 jailbroken iPhone at will while away from your computer!

It’s not without it’s cons, but it’s a whole lot better than a normal tethered jailbreak. How to get use Semitethered Jailbreak
Step 1: Tether Jailbreak your iOS 5 device with RedSn0w Step 2: Add http://thebigboss.org/semitether to your Cydia sources. Step 3: Install SemiTether and reboot!
That’s it. Now you can reboot your iPhone, even away from your computer! As mentioned, there are a few cons though.
  • Phone will reboot to Home screen
  • Can use every stock app on iPhone except Mail and Safari until boot tether
  • Can’t use Cydia, or any jailbreak apps and tweaks until boot tether
  • Phone can take longer to boot

That’s a pretty good compromise, whenever you want to reboot while away from the computer.

Remember to get the full functionality back you have to boot the device back into a tethered jailbroken state using Redsn0w. To do this, start Redsn0w, go into “Extras”, select “Just Boot” option and enter DFU mode. Redsn0w should now boot your device as tethered

How To Enable Facebook Timeline Right Now

Written by Gradly on . Posted in blog, Facebook, Hack, How To, News, Rants & Raves, Social Networks, Tutorials

This morning Facebook announced Timeline, a look at everything that has ever happened in your Facebook lifespan. It’s like a story book of your life. Although the feature has been announced, it is not yet available to the public – only developers can get access.

Things to consider:

  • You probably don’t want to do this unless you’re actually a developer. Expect bugs.
  • Only you will see your timeline at first (unless you decide otherwise), but it will automatically go public after a few days. My timeline was automatically hard-set to go public on September 29th.
  • It seems that if you login into Facebook on another machine, Timeline gets disabled automatically on all of your machines. With that said, it seems you can get back to your timeline (but ONLY after following the steps below) by navigating to http://www.facebook.com/YOURUSERNAMEHERE?sk=timeline
  • You’ll need to have a “verified” account for one of the steps, which means you need a credit card or phone number attached to the account.
How to enable it:
Step 1: Log in to Facebook.

Step 2: You will need to enable developer mode if you haven’t already. Simply type “Developer” in the search box and click on the top result.

Step 3: Go to the developer app, which can be found here should Facebook not automatically redirect you.

Step 4: Create a new app (don’t fret, nobody will be able to see it), and give it a name and namespace (no CAPS allowed with the namespace).

Step 5: Once that’s done, click on the “Get Started using open graph” under the “Open Graph” header.

Step 6: You will then be asked to create a test action for your app, like “read” a “book”.

Step 7: Next, you’ll be met with a config page of your selected action. Navigate through that page and the next three pages of settings.

Step 8: Once you have gone through the last page and hit “Save and Finish”, after a couple of minutes, an invite to try Timeline should appear at the top of your homescreen.

Click it, and you will be met with a page which seemingly covers every story of your Facebook life since the day you joined. Enjoy!
