    So I installed the latest version of MyWi from Cydia on my JBed device. It launched, but after I turned off the classic settings and changed the tethering bar to tethering icon, the app wouldn't launch again. It crashes almost instantly, after it launches!?

    Anyone else experienced this??

    Also, Dimmer 1.4--latest version, I guess--does not work with iOS 5.1.

    Obviously many cydia packages will need to be updated to work with 5.1

    Thanks for the reply!

    Have you JBed your 5.1 yet? Or better yet, have you updated to 5.1 yet? ;)

    Thanks again for the input!

    No, I'm staying on 5.0.1
    I have no choice, I got a 4S:)

    While MyWi crashes each time I try to open it, the SBSettings Toggle works fine. I am able to tether (iPhone 4, iOS 5.1 Redsnow) WiFi fine but I can't turn on USB tethering because I can't load the app. I'm sure an update is coming soon.

    MyWi still not working here. I have since shot them an email. They recommended, among other things, reinstalling the app over WiFi. I have done that, but the app still crashes at launch.

    Also, MyWi SBSettings toggle has never appeared, even though I've enabled it in "Options.". Don't know where I did wrong?

    Hopefully, an update is coming soon!

    I am not upgrading to 5.1 until the last minute. One of my regrets with moving from 4.2.8 to iOS 5 right on release day tethered and all.. was all of the tweaks that were still incompatible. Tweaks that I really love and use daily. So it took a lot of patience, and it seems now that I have 'arrived' at another jailbroken zen state, and will not budge until the developers have caught up this time, and the jb is stable and untethered. (iPhone 4)

    That's exactly how I am too.
    What's the point updating to the latest JB firmware if most packages havent been updated to work with it yet?
    Im in no hurry, Im happy with 5.0.1

    Same problem here 5.1 JB. 3gs with old bootrom, so untethered JB. Cydia installed, license for MyWi worked (Purcased version). Starts up and just crashes mywi.... Any work arounds? I actually need this next week...

    ETA: I also emailed support and was told they are aware of the issue with 5.1 and it will be addressed with an update.

    MyWi beta ...

    Hey JollyRogers, could you PM me that info for the MyWi beta as well? The newest version totally bricked my phone today and I've gotten it restored to its non-jailbroken state. But I could really use the features of MyWi, this week in particular. Thank you!
