MyWi Tethering App With iOS 5 Support Now Available For Download [Cydia]


Intelliborn has just updated its popular tethering app MyWi with full support for upcoming iOS 5 firmware update. MyWi is a jailbreak app available in Cydia store which allows users to enable wireless tethering on any carrier and take full advantage of their mobile data plan by turning their iPhones into WiFi hotspots. MyWi 5.0 can be downloaded for a price of $19.99, though a 3-day trial is also available to let you to try before you buy.

Below is a list of features offered by MyWi 5.0:

  • Create iPad or iPhone WiFi Hotspot to connect mutiple laptops or mobile devices to share your iPhone/iPad’s internet connection
  • 40 bit and 104 bit WEP Security to prevent others from accessing your WiFi HotSpot
  • Ability to enable USB and Bluetooth Tethering on your iPhone or iPad
  • Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID) – no need to fuss with creating an adhoc network on your laptop
  • Shows up and down bandwith usage for iPhone WiFi Tethering or iPhone USB Tethering
  • Uses less battery and much faster then other tethering apps due to native routing
    Please check your contract/carrier agreement regarding WiFi tethering other devices to your iPhone/iPad. Additional charges may apply.

Since iOS 5 is currently in developer’s beta, Intelliborn urges its users to provide feedback and bug reports either via email option using Cydia or by visiting their Support page. You can also reach out to the developers on Twitter as well @intellibornco.

    Are there still carriers that disallow the personal hotspot iOS feature? (In Canada)..

  • I think the “big three” allow tethering with no extra charges.  I know Bell does.

    Rogers/fido don’t let you tether with 500 mb. But in all honesty 500 mb you shouldn’t be tethering anyways. I got 6 GB and usually tether 4 GB a month. Barely use 1 gb on device browsing.

    What’s the difference with the native iPhone “Personal Hotspot” feature?

  • Sean

    As far as I know, the Big 3 allow tethering (without extra charges) with a data plan of 1GB or higher.

  • DAvid

    telus as well, on any plan.

    when one installs MyWi, it requires non tether boot, but with the jailbreaks currently available only with tethered boot.
