You might already know what’s the difference between an untethered jailbreak and a tethered jailbreak, but have you heard about a “semi-tethered jailbreak”? Yes folks, semitethered jailbreak has been released for the iPhone, iPad and the iPod touch.
The BigBoss has released a new kind of jailbreak called the semi-tethered jailbreak. What this kind of semitethered jailbreak does is, it allows you to boot-tethered without the need of a computer. Very useful for people who travel a lot and do not have easy access to a computer.
This sounds too good to be a true right? Well it does have some disadvantages such as you won’t be able to use Safari, Cydia and other jailbroken apps.
