Jailbreak: MyWi 5.5 tether update adds compatibility support for iOS 5.1.1

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

    So the obvious question is how do you all avoid your carriers from changing your plan when they catch you? I have an unlimited data plan from at&t and do no want to give that up.

  • Joel, you need to inform your readers the dangers that illicit tethering bring. The cell phone companies have been known to kick the customers of an unlimited plan, or switch whatever plan their on to the highest data hot spot tier.

     @amsmagic I apologize if I didn’t stress enough that carriers do not allow tether outside of their own plans. We try to make it apparent that while jailbreaking and the perks that come with it can be good, they should only be done at ones own risk. Thanks

     @maejs5 I have an unlimited plan as well and have used this jailbreak app, so far I haven’t had any problems. There are others that claim to make all the data appear as if it is coming all from the iPhone, but I can’t vouch for them. Again we have to reiterate that all modifications that are done through jailbreaking could void your warranty, or worst case scenario, brick you phone. They should only be done at your discretion.
