Jailbreak developers are beginning to update their tweaks and apps with iOS 5 compatibility. We told you about BiteSMS getting updated for iOS 5 yesterday, and now another staple jailbreak app has been updated for Apple’s highly anticipated mobile software.

Popular tethering app MyWi has been updated by Intelliborn to version 5.0. With iOS 5 compatibility, this new version of MyWi also features some improvements and bug fixes…

“MyWi™ 5.0 has been rebuilt from scratch to bring iPhone WiFi tethering support to iOS 4 & 5! Will work with all jailbroken iPhones (including 2G/3G/3GS/4) and iPad on 3.1.2 or later.

  • iOS 5.0 Support!
  • Faster performance
  • Lower battery consumption

MyWi allows you to create WiFi hotspots via your iPhone or iPad’s 3G connection. The app has been known to get users in trouble on AT&T, so be careful when using this app to unofficially tether to other devices.

MyWi 5.0 is available in Cydia for $19.99. Users on version 4.x can upgrade for free, while 3.x users will need to pay $9.99.

    Has MyWi been updated to hide your tethering usage to AT&T or are we still all screwed on that front? I haven’t risked it ever since I got the first warning text…

      How did you do that Mr President.

    • I don’t believe that it has. I recommend using PdaNet with level 2 security. That’s the only way to assure that you won’t be discovered — and even then you shouldn’t be downloading large files or streaming video.

        Is that iOS 5 ready?

  • Soto

    @Eric yes. Read above man.
    And why hasn’t this been updated to hide usage like PDANet? Don’t get me wrong I love tethering on the go, but MyWi’s UI looks great.

    • Eric

      WheRe above does it say if pdanet is iOS 5 ready. Cause cydia says it isn’t.

    Can someone please help.. I bought mywi 5.0 I’m using an iPhone 4 on Verizon.. I launch mywi and it work but I can’t use data on the phone after and when I close it still no connection when I launch safari or something that uses data.. The only way to fix the problem is to reset network settings in the phone settings.. Please help! Thanks in advance..
