What Is Tethered Mode?
Note: Tethered Mode only applies to iPhone, it does not apply to Android. Due to technology limitations most iPhones can only run in tethered mode.
Most newer iPhones run in what’s called Tethered Mode.
Tethered Mode means that some applications will continue to run until the iPhone is powered off or the battery runs out. The software will then become dormant.
To restart the application, you need to re-apply the jailbreak. You do NOT need to re-install Aispyer for iPhone. Most people charge their phones in time, this situation is rare, but it also exists.
Reapplying the jailbreaking literally takes a matter of minutes if you have already set up the tool.
