  • Tethering on 3.1 - MyWi 3.1.8


    Folks have been waiting for tethering on 3.1.x, and it's available now with the 3.1.8 release of MyWi.app. MyWi is a Rock.app application we've mentioned before, which runs $9.99 to purchase. It comes with a free trial. The nice thing about the tethering? Not only does it work on 3.1 firmware, it runs on the iPhone 2G just as smoothly as the iPhone 3G/3G[S] (of course at a slower speed, since the 2G obviously only runs EDGE).

    Version 3.1.8 is now available from the Rock App.. All trials which have occurred before are being reset as well, so folks are getting a full trial regardless as of this release.



    Features are the same as before, but now with 3.1.x and iPhone 2G covered as well:
    • Create WiFi Hotspot to connect mutiple laptops or mobile devices to share your iPhone''s internet connection
    • 40 bit and 104 bit WEP Security to prevent others from accessing your WiFi HotSpot
    • Ability to enable USB and Bluetooth Tethering on your iPhone as well
    • Uses less battery and much faster then PdaNet due to native routing
    • Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID) - no need to fuss with creating an adhoc network on your laptop
    • Shows up and down bandwith usage

      I downloaded the one from iphoneguide. It didn't put the tethering option back under networking like I had previous. Choose the reinstall button and powered the phone off and back on, nada Uninstalled,powered off and back on and my phone got stuck at the apple logo

      I wound up having to restore it because it wouldn't go any further. Well at least I know how to restore my phone now hahah

      Just got back from lunch so I guess I'll jailbreak it and try again..

      If i get the settings from BenM will that then make my tether appear or should it had been there before i put any settings in. I don't remember seeing a place to in the info but oh well...I'll give it a shot and if it screws up again. I'll just wait, not like MyWi doesn't work great

      Well pluck me LOL that may have been the problem

      Can u send me the link for the profile stuff at BenM.at or PM

      the website is help.BenM.at – Mobileconfigs and Tethering for your iPhone | BenM.at.

      I removed the help.benm.at tethering profile from my phone and the 3GS tethering patch from the ifoneguide repo so that I could try out the all in one bundle from the sinfuliphone repo. Bad idea. My phone is now stuck on the apple log and I will probably have to restore it, rejailbreak it and then try again. If it fails again, I am sticking with the ifoneguide patch, it works.

      I tried the one from iguide and I got stuck at the apple logo and uninstalled it but I didnt do the BenM at thing. I'm at work and when I tried to JB it would always get stuck at the itunes screen. I finally got it JB though after trying the powerbutton/home thing about 20 times hahah. My 2nd PC at home has no problem with the JB

      Guess as soon as I get Cyndia and Rock back installed I'll get venturous again LOL

      I was going to try the one at sinful but to be honest I was hesitate to try it from there.

      Ok I finally got JB and got the patch from ifoneguide and the BenM.at patched loaded and I'm tethered posting from my phone at this moment.

      I'll have to check to see if my vmail is broken...

      I still don't see a screen that will allow me to make changes to my APN and VMail. So what screen should that be under?

      Well I don't have the APN functions available and my voicemail doesn't seem to work now.

      I'm on carrier 5.5 if that made any difference.

      Looks like I'll have to uninstall this and go back to MyWi

      should I have used the mobileconfigs thing at BenM and put in the APN info myself?

      I just used the preconfiged one that had me choose USA,AT&T

      start cyndia,more package resources,find iphoneguide, tap it and install..thats going off of memory but should be close

      now does anyone have any idea why i cant see or change my APN settings? I'm thinking about creating one on BenM and trying that to see if my vmail starts working..

      I guess i'm giving up and going back to MyWi

      I can get the hack installed, but I don't get the celluar apn setting screen, nor does my visual voicemail works.

      I can tether though.

      When I had MyWi installed I could tether and voicemail worked...

      Wonder if I should download the Stealth carrier file and give it a whirl before I give up

      SB's carrier file does not enable tethering on 3.1.2 permanently, the settings dissapear as soon as you enable it. For me, MiWi does the trick so I'm happy I bought it.

      The easiest way I've found to go about it if you want to tether, Is to install MyWi, enable the native bluetooth/usb tethering option, go in to your settings turn tethering on, then get rid of MyWi by SSH'ing in to your phone and deleting the MyWi app. That way you keep the hack for tethering and don't need to pay for MyWi. If you try to uninstall MyWi from Rock/Cydia, it also removes the tether hack.

      Maybe I'm wrong but if you used the trial to install the "hack" and don't get the app, you are banking on the "hack" not needing registration code within a period of time or it not expiring. And as you state, what you're enabling is usb/bluetooth tethering. I suspect the ability to enable and broadcast a wifi access point lies within the app. Can you confirm that please?

      I got Mywi working after I hacked the commcenter in the iphone today. Once tethering was enabled with that hack, mywi worked great.

      The ifoneguide tethering patch + benm.at profile = tethering and mms working, but not vvmail. My trial on MyWi is running out so I'm probably going to buy it as well. I'm a tad disappointed...

      Yeah I had the same results. When I tried to remove the tether hack I wound up having to reload everything, so I guess I'll get it out of the way in the morning and go back to MyWi, I had everything working with it besides $10 isn't much and like I said I doubt it'll ever happen for me but one day I may need the wifi tethering
      oh well

      **EDIT**
      Well I was able to uninstall the tethering hack and BenM profile this time without having to do a full restore *whew* I wasn't looking forward to reloading and having to rejail break my phone. Seems like I wasn't the only one who got stuck at the apple logo screen and had to restore.

      Just loaded MyWi back up tested it and it works and so does my voice mail. When my trial is up I'll just spring for it and be done with it

      huh? solution to what? I think that's pretty much been stated already in this thread

      So does your voicemail work? I did the 3G tether hack and it worked but killed my voice mail.
