Ok, so I saw today this thing about a semi-tether jailbreak option, and I was wondering if anybody here knows anything more about it?
My questions are about how this works with certain apps. First off, how does the semi-tether state affect apps like Facebook, Twitter, myYearbook, and others that use internet besides Safari and Mail? I know that many internet apps call another process to view webpages(UIWebView, or something like that?), and I am not clear on whether this is considered part of Safari, and thus affected by semi-tether state or not.
Also, seeing as jailbreak tweaks, and specifically any jailbreak tweaks related to notification center or also things like SBSettings, cannot be used, and such mentioned jailbreak tweaks supposedly cause a respring loop, how does one goes about deactivating such tweaks before or once in semi-tethered state? Are they automatically deactivated? Or the way I read it, if they are even installed on the device, and one attempts to boot the device to semi-tethered state, then the device will go to this respring loop? Thus effectively, this semi-tethered state is not functional, therefore the device is effectively NOT a semi-tethered jailbroken device, and still just a tethered jailbreak?
