    Hey guys, I have a quick question regarding the jb for the iPhone 3gs on iOS 5.1. I understand that it's tethered. But, If the only app I install in cydia is MyWii or PDANet, will I be able to turn the phone off and on without having to use redsnow. Meaning will the phone still work if those are the only two things installed. I don't think either of them require mobilesubtrate, so it should be fine, right?

    Reason I ask, is because I want to use that line and that phone to tether to my iPad. My iPhone 4s and 3Gs both have 200 mb plans from AT&T, but the 3Gs is used by my dad who uses barely any data. Maybe 10mb, and since we are going on a road trip next month, I figured I would set up tethering for him to use while in the car.

    Nope, if the iPhone is turned off or rebooted, you're going to need redsn0w to turn it back on properly.

    If you manage your iPhone correctly then tethered is fine.

    Heed PssGreek's reply.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I'm only going to install MyWii and PDANet, so hopefully neither of them require mobile substrate.
