Well known jailbreak tweak MyWi 8 has just been updated to support the newly jailbreakable firmware iOS 8.3 on all iPhones and cellular iPads. Now up to version 8.03.02, it is still one of the most popular Cydia packages around.
While iOS now supports tethering of data connections with its ‘Personal Hotspot’ feature, what sets MyWi apart from the native offering in iOS is its ability to enable WiFi-to-WiFi tethering. This is called WiFi Sharing and it allows you to rebroadcast the WiFi signal to which your iOS device is connected to. This is super useful to use in hotels or places where you can pay once for WiFi and rebroadcast the same signal using WiFi Sharing feature to your friends and family. MyWi also gives you ability to create 5GHz hotspots, something that Apple’s native offering doesn’t.
The good news here is that if you have already paid for MyWi 6, 7 or earlier versions of MyWi 8, the upgrade to the latest version for iOS 8.3 is totally free, though if you’re looking to start fresh, it will set you back a good $19.99. Pricey I know but if features like WiFi Sharing is important to you, then it’s probably worth getting. Intelliborn, the developers behind MyWi, are also offering a free three-day trial to all users so that they can experience the tweak first-hand before making the decision to purchase it.
MyWi 8 can be downloaded from the ModMyi repository in Cydia.
