Stay away from this crap. I bricked my iPhone because of semi tether. Luckily it was in warranty period so got a replacement. Stay away from piece of shit. This is probably the first dark side of Jail Break i ever encountered since jail breaking began STAY AWAY!

Hello, can the new iphone 4S also be jailbroken? (tethered or semi-tethered)

Appsync needs to work with mobilesubstrate first then it will work. They are working on an update for it right now and they say they should have it up in 2-3 days. Sheck the comments from Bigboss on the semiteather

Well, I installed the new mobile substrate and was ready to install semi-tether when it showed that AppSync would be uninstalled. I didn't go through then, but app sync is still working with new substrate.

how come this can't be designed into redsn0w? I did 4.3.5 goofing off and it was tethered but I was able to reboot just the same way as this makes it do.

a good idea, but it doesn't work. in fact, after i installed it and removed it, my phone just restarts on it's own. it works better in safe mode. this tethered jailbreak thing sucks even more w/ this semitether thing making things conflict. ah well. i've prepared myself to deal w/ having stock iOS 5 if i have to wait until an untethered JB drops devs, thank you so far for what you have done.hq

You idiots this was done by dev-team to screw your dumbasses! You just bricked your iPhone now run out there and buy iPhone 4s.

What are you talking about ? just want to abuse us ?

Tom - October 23, 2011 at 12:02pm
I don't abuse anybody but just telling you the truth this was done by dev-team to brick your iPhones so you can run out there and buy new ones. Don't you recall dev-team last year saying they have a way to unlock the iPhones for good then all of a sudden quiet about it then suddenly lo and be hold apple selling unlocked iPhones. And not new unlocks for new basebands. Come on guys don't have to have a P.H.D to figure it out.

It does not brick the iPhone. It certainly causes some headaches in having to restore the whole thing but it does not brick the iPhone. And I do have a PH.d which obviously you don't.

And now we all truly know what an idiot you are.

deleted semitether app, after a few failed attempts to reboot tethered all went well and my phone is back working as it did originally before this waste of time and beta app!

Tried it several times, (with no luck) but my phone is working as excellent as always, this wasn't build ti brick phones, if you might know in order to get something to work properly you need to test it a lot and we are in that phase of the process, so if you are one of those ignorants saying this will brick phones, please go back to school and let everyone else work on it!

trusted iclarified and didn't read the comments. didn't work for me iP4 GSM. got stuck on booting circular icon. tried many tools to get back into a bootable state. tiny umbrella fix recovery etc. redsn0w couldn't boot, gave errors. iTunes couldn't restore ispw, gave errors. finally managed to boot with redsn0w but iTunes couldn't recognise device!!!! HELP!!!!!!

Easy, don't worry, this is because the substrate is modified and is trying to work in safe mode, simply go back to Cydia, uninstall the semi tethered tweak, reboot your device (using redsn0w to path boot) and should work just fine.
