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

Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 Released, The Fastest iOS 5 Jailbreak for Mac & Windows

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Cydia, Featured, How To, iPhone, Jailbreak, Tutorials

Dev-Team pushed another update to Redsn0w jailbreak for iOS 5. The news came from @MuscleNerd as always via Twitter explaining that Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 for Windows and Mac is the fastest jailbreak solution for iOS 5. Total jailbreak time has been reduced to 80 seconds which was previously around 210 seconds. However, this will stretch the first time loading of Cydia after jailbreak, during which the stashing of applications will occur. An option in Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 preferences allows you  to choose whether you want redsn0w or Cydia to stash applications.

Via the official Dev-Team blog:

After some feedback on reddit, we’ve decided to make the initial jailbreak as quick as possible by no longer “stashing” the applications by default during the redsn0w run.  This reduces the time to actually perform the jailbreak from 210 seconds to 80 seconds (60 percent!).  However, you make up for much of that the first time you launch Cydia, which will then want to stash the applications.  You can choose whether you want redsn0w or Cydia to stash in the Preferences pane.
