How To Semitether Your iOS Device On iOS 5.1

Today, I’m going to show you how to install Semi-Tether on your pre-A5 devices.

First off, let me begin by explaining what semi-tether is. It is an application which boots your device into an non-jailbroken state even when you have a tethered jailbreak on your device on iOS 5.1. This comes in handy if you’re on the road and the phone dies out on you. You will be able to use all stock apps like from the AppStore, the Phone app, messages in this semi-tethered state. Mail, Safari, and all your jailbroken tweaks, applications and Cydia will not, repeat, not work in this mode. For a more technical explanation, see this explanation by the developer.
So let’s get down to the installing part, shall we?
Step 1:- Restore to iOS 5.1 and Jailbreak using your preferred method.

Step 2:- Open Cydia, and add the following source to Cydia

After Cydia has finished adding the source, search for and install Semitether.

Step 3:- Once it finishes installing, just do a tethered boot using redsn0w, and you’re done.

Here’s a video you can check out.
