How to Semi-Tethered Jailbreak iOS 5 On iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

These are instructions on how to perform a semi tethered jailbreak of your iOS 5 iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
A semi-tethered jailbreak is an interim solution which solves the problem of being unable to reboot with a tethered jailbreak. The semi tethered jailbreak by BigBoss will allow you to reboot on the road, but with limited functionality. It is enough that you are no longer stranded, and you can use your phone, text, and many other features. This is just until you get home and can use RedSn0w again to “just boot tethered”. Once you do that, you’re back to fully functional state.
Step One
Jailbreak and boot your device tethered using the instructions below:
