Earlier this week we told you that the popular SemiTethered Jailbreaking solution was updated to version 0.7.9. This update included numerous stability improvements and fixed a lot of errors users were experiencing while Jailbreaking their iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad Semitethered with the SemiTether Cydia package.
Today BigBoss along with Saurik (creator of Cydia) has updated the SemiTethered Jailbreak to version 0.9.1. This new version of the SemiTethered Jailbreak contains an updated version of MobileSubstrate that is currently in a beta testing period (expect bugs). The benefits of using this beta version of MobileSubstrate, however, is that it will get rid of all the daemon patching which in turn means you will be able to use Notification Center plugins and also Mobile Safari (with patching) upon restarting into a SemiTethered state. Overall you will additionally notice the SemiTether 0.9.1 Cydia package is much more stable than in previous versions.
BigBoss has noted that the following changes come in to play in the SemiTether 0.9.1 Cydia package:
Summary of changes:
- 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.
- Keep in mind that I am additionally looking into a patch for the mail.app
If you were experiencing any of the errors with previous versions of the SemiTether Cydia Package we suggest updating version 0.9.1. Let us know if this update has fixed errors with your SemiTethered iOS 5 Jailbreak in the comments section below…
