MyWi Internet Tethering Utility Gets Support For Devices Running iOS 5.1.1 [Jailbreak]

MyWi allows you to share your iPhone's data connection with other devices over Wi-Fi.

If you love tethering your iPhone to other devices to share its 3G (or fake “4G”) data connection, but you hate paying the additional fees demanded by your carrier, then you’re likely to be a MyWi user. MyWi is an incredibly popular utility for jailbroken iOS devices that allows you to turn your iPhone or iPad into a personal Wi-Fi hotspot without activation from your carrier.

Those who recently upgraded to iOS 5.1.1 to take advantage of the Absinthe 2.0 untethered jailbreak will be pleased to know that MyWi has now been updated to support this release.

The update, which is labeled version 5.51.1, is available to download now from Cydia, and it’s highly recommended if you’re running iOS 5.1.1. It is, of course, free to all MyWi 5 customers.

If you don’t already own MyWi, you can download it for $19.99. That seems quite pricey for a jailbreak tweak, but it’ll save you a whole lot of cash on carrier fees. You can also take advantage of a free trial that allows you to test MyWi for three days without paying a penny.

Of course, sharing your 3G data connection without paying for it is illegal, so be aware of that before installing MyWi on your device.

    Huh?  

    You will be in violation with your provider’s terms, but they aren’t going to send you to jail.
