If you’re like me, then tethering is a big motivation to jailbreak your iDevice. Actually, I think it was the only reason I ended up freeing my phone in the first place. You can imagine my frustration then, when, after using Absinthe 2.0 to open my iDevice, I wasn’t able to tether using the famous MyWi. Thankfully that has been fixed.
An update to MyWi has added compatibility support for iOS 5.1.1. I don’t believe I was the only customer to notice that the beloved tethering lifeline wasn’t working after the latest jailbreak. I actually ended up trying out several other jailbreak options like TetherMe and pdaNet, but I am extremely glad to say that I have tested the updated MyWi and it is working.
Make sure you guys grab the update in Cydia so you can tether to your hearts content. I do have to add that most major carriers don’t allow jailbroken tethering, so please do so at your own risk.
Have you guys had similar problems with MyWi? Has this update fixed it? Let us know down below in the comments
