Jailbreak Only: MyWi Gets An Update – now Supports iOS 5

The popular jailbreak application “MyWi” has recently received an update, which adds iOS 5 support and performance improvements. the app, which allowed users to create Wi-Fi hotspots via their iPhone long before iOS 4.3 did, is currently available to purchase in the Cydia Store for $19.99.

As outlined in the app’s release notes:

“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

This is great news for users of the application, as it means MyWi will already be compatible with iOS 5 once the mobile operating system is released to the general public. Currently, iOS 5 is still in its beta phase of development, though a Gold Master version is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

If you already own version 4.x of MyWi, this update can be downloaded for free. However, if you’re running 3.x it will cost $9.99. And for new customers, the application costs $19.99. Furthermore, it is worth noting that AT&T is cracking down on unauthorized tethering, so be warned.

Take a look at the latest version of MyWi now, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
