    Smile iOS 5 (tethered) jailbreakers?

    just taking a head count

    i have been bouncing back & forth due to my OCD but with IntelliScreenX and or the "new" LockInfo coming soon, i may stick with it

    i do have to say that every time i have been tethered i have not ran into any mysterious-random reboots (knock on wood)

    I'm not sure if I count because this is the first time I've ever jailbroken my phone and now I can't imagine not having it jailbroken!! What a difference a few tweaks makes!!

    Granted, I can't wait for the unteathered so I can stop worrying about the reboot.

    I also saw the IntelliScreenX video and cannot wait until it's release. Genius!

    I jailbroke my iphone 4 running iOS 5 this morning with redsnow and so far no problems, and it seems a lot of the cydia tweaks and apps already support iOS 5. About to install the semi-tether though just in case..

    I had the tethered 5.0 JB on mine before I got my 4S and it worked fine, and I loved it. Can't wait until there is a JB for it.

    All the way. The only thing I'm still really missing are good lockscreen themes, but I'm a little wary of installing Winterboard these days.

    not only does it count but you should get a bonus! being tethered for your first time on a jailbroken device tells me that you like to take chances and like to tinker. nice to see!

    it only gets easier with the Untethered, as you already know

    I would stay away from the semi tethered as there have been many people reporting problems with it.

    yea thats what I ended up doing, a friend of mine said the same thing and that they were planning on fixing it in a few days so I decided it was probably better to hold off

    I JB last night after going thru withdraw. I did have a mysterious random reboot for some reason while I was reading twitter. But it rebooted fine and I didn't need to reconnect to a computer. I will have to watch this.

    Seven77...are you getting themes to work properly? I tried last night and winteboard and a few themes caused all kinds of issues. Cool theme, does it come in blue?

    I'm still on the fence about jailbreaking. I really want to wait until an untethered is available, but I'm reeeaaally tempted to do it anyway lol

    Default IntelliScreenX

    IntelliScreenX: this is enough of a reason to go tethered or jailbreak. period.

    I'm waiting for the untethered JB. I can wait a few more weeks if that's how long it's going to take.

    I'm on the fence about this topic too. I don't mind doing it cuz customizing is always nice. I'm just worried about those reboots when I'm away from my laptop and I can't get my phone to work.

    The semi tethered jailbreak allows you to still use your phone after a reboot.

    I'm with you Rose, and i wonder how much IntelliScreenX will cost? I've already paid for Lockinfo, and maybe they're working on something similar.

    i've been tethered for a while now and have not experienced any random reboots. not a fan of the semi tether since it still is in beta

    grunt, ISX is 9.99 and is well worth it. IntelliScreenX > LockInfo

    So, i take it that you think that ISX is better than what Lockinfo can come up with?

    Been on the semi tethered in since the day it came out.

    Had to reboot a few times for misc reasons.

    Works as advertised. Reboots into a unjailbroken iPhone minus the email and safari which functionalities can be replaced by 3rd party apps.

    Went home and re jailbroke with redsnow and was back in business within a few minutes.

    I think I'm about to spring of the semi-tethered package myself. Are there serious bugs that I should know about? Just hate the thought of getting stranded, but I also don't want a buggy hack on my phone...

    Tried tethered... really wanted to like it, but it was terrible. Just reloading all my apps was terrible, because Cydia requires a reboot for most of them. I installed some of them, and then using it the first day was awful. Plus it wouldn't come out of safe mode. I went back to stock and might just go back to 4.8 - ios 5 doesn't give me much that jailbroken 4.8 didn't.

    That sounds like you installed an incompatible Cydia tweak. Although a lot of them have been updated, the majority of the tweaks still aren't iOS 5 compatible and cause Safe Mode loops or other problems. If you do some research and find what tweaks and hacks have been updated, you shouldn't have a problem.

    If you installed Infinifolders (a tweak I'd assume most jailbreaker tried to install), it definitely causes the Safe Mode loop.
