Semi-tethered jailbreak for iOS 5

iOS 5 has already been jailbroken¬†to allow running on unofficial 3rd party apps, but the current jailbreak with Redsn0w is considered a “tethered” jailbreak because it requires that the phone be tethered and re-jailbroken any time your jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iTouch is rebooted.

We still await someone clever enough to create a fully untethered jailbreak of iOS 5, but in the meantime, there is “Semi-Tether” a semi-tethered jailbreak available from Cydia, one of the premier app stores for jailbroken devices. ¬†Unfortunately, some apps won’t work after a reboot, but at least most of them well. For more info, check out App Advice’s article on SemiTether.
