Ground-breaking news everyone. We have a “Semitethered jailbreak for iOS 5. YES, we are out of the “tethered”cage. A few minutes ago BigBoss released Semitedthered jailbreak for iOS 5 which allows you to reboot your device while you are away from your computer. That`s without a doubt a life saver.

To Semitether your device:
Step 1: Tether Jailbreak your iOS 5 device with RedSn0w (Complete download and guide HERE)
Step 2: Add http: // to your Cydia sources.

Step 3: Install SemiTether and rebootm.
Step 4: Since it’s still tethered, you’ll need to make just tethered boot from redsn0w.

STEP 5: Once done with the tethered boot, you’ll be able to reboot your device without being stuck on Apple logo.

It`s a great help and a major advancement, but it still has caveats:

According to the BigBoss:
1) Can use phone, sms (text messages)
2) Can use every other stock app on iphone.
3) Cannot use mobile safari
4) Can use other appstore web browsers such as atomic web browser
5) Cannot use mail app. You could install a gmail app from appstore or such instead.
6) You cannot use any jailbreak tweak, app, cydia until you boot tethered.
7) While in the semitether booted state, you should not add a jailbreak ios5 notification such as sbsettings to notifications during this state or your device will be stuck in a respring loop until you get home to “boot tethered”.

Despite the limitations, it`s still great news for everyone.
