  • MyWi Released! Turn your iPhone into a Wifi hotspot!



    Create a WiFi HotSpot with a press of a finger! Wherever you are - you can connect your laptop or other mobile device to your iPhone easily!

    Features:
    - 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
    - Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID) - no need to fuss with creating an adhoc network on your laptop
    - Uses less battery and much faster then PdaNet due to native routing
    - Shows up and down bandwith usage


    NOTE: MyWi does not support the iPhone 2G. Please see your carrier contract for eligibility and/or additional fees.
    I played around with this all afternoon, and it seems to work great. A nice addition to this app is that you don't have to have tethering enabled from a custom ipcc either, you can enable tethering from MyWi. I had three laptops connected to my phone earlier this afternoon and they all were able to cruise the net quite nicely. MyWi sells for $9.99 and is a great application to have on your iPhone. There is a free 10 day trial available also


    cash edit: you can get it via rockyourphone



    Enjoy!

      I noticed there are two version one with rock and other without. What is the difference?

      I guess they should both be the same...personally, I don't use anything from rock (I've only had nightmares with rock), if it's not in cydia, I'll live without it

      I've been using MyWi for the last 10 days on the free trial for my iPad, and it has been working wonderfully. The speed is very good, and the connection has been reliable. This product is well worth $9.99.

      So this is a one time fee of $10???

      Anyone getting charged additional fees by AT&T though i doubt it's possible for them to find out.....at least from what im aware of.

      Basically i just want to know if anyone is getting charged additional fees for this.

      Thanks

      Would be cool if this could tether to a blackberry and you have the best of both worlds......BBM and iPhone-awesomeness, android is sick too but i only like it for the OS

      Nope, we all do it and it is free Do not ask at&t
      You are already paying 30.+ $ for data.

      Hope this will help.

      Hey guys, apologies for de-railing this thread slightly.

      I'm running on a a iPhone 3g, jailbroken with MyWi, OS 3.1.3. I can't justify upgrading to iOS4 just yet and paying an extra $10 for something I get right now.

      I've found out that I can connect to a free WiFi spot thanks to my network (o2 in UK) near my house, and I was wondering if the following was possible.

      Could I connect to the Wifi, then use Mywi to share the network connection with my netbook for free, or will it only work on whatever signal the iPhone is getting at the time?

      Thanks!

      I was from the first users to buy this application as a supporter , but after the release of the 4.0 application and forcing me to pay another 10$ to upgrade, i said its better to download the cracked version and thats what i did,
      i will never spend anymore one penny on un-honest developer going around in Cydia and Especially ROCK APP.

      they are all scammer,

      MyWi is useless to buy it, i have 2 iphone and 1 ipad, do i have to pay for three different licenses? as MyWi use Rock and wont let me use it on different devices.


      while you buy an application in the apple store and you never pay extra money for the new release, which is not the case in Cydia and Rock where developer never even care to reply on our messages

      ^I too believe the Cydia upgrade/multiple phone/ipad support is broken. I've been lucky (I think) having been cheated with a non-functioning/non-responsive app/dev only once. However, I will continue to support our developers, but only those that prove they produce good products at a reasonable price. (MMI is your friend )

      As for MyWi -- I can't help but believe this will soon be extinct. I also believe the original idea was 'borrowed' from Apples own developer code as well as most of the router functionality. Note: This functionality has been public code for 20+ years. Just change the interface and add a fancy front end.

      And frankly, if it's my money -- $20 for a new license is too much just like $30 for Apples 25 cent bumpers is totally outrageous! I'll pass.

      After reading through this thread I am still totally confused about a the Rock, No Rock issue. I'm new to jailbreaking and recently cracked my 3G to get MiWi for my IPad. I also have a 3GS but it's a new bootrom and a new IOS4 phone that will may be jailbroken one day as well.

      Is Rock the same as Rock Your Phone??

      I installed Cydia and Rock (your phone), created a Rock ID, installed MiWi 4.1.3 and have been more than pleased with the result. My trial was about to expire so today I purchased a license (it took half the day to figure out how to pay for it!) Now I see an update on my ROCK icon for an update to 4.2.1.

      For god sake, someone please explain this - Is the Rock I had to install to get MiWi the same Rock I should avoid using for MiWi?? In Cydia, I find a MyWi, a MyWi 4 and a MyWi no Rock. Huh?? Do I upgrade? Uninstall and use the No Rock version? You guys don't make it easy to figure out. I did read about some conflict problems with the Rock version but it this still an issue or outdated information?

      Thanks for any help you can offer. MyWi is working right now and I don't want to break it by updating anything.

      Thanks in advance for untangling this for me.

      you don't have to worry bout anything you have the latest version of Mywi 4 the other ones (mywi and mywi no rock) are older and since u bought it from the rock app you dont have to avoid it

      Thanks for the immediate reply. Updated to 4.2.1 and all is well.

      After updating to the newest version (4.2.1) my 3G has become almost unusable. Before the update I had no problem with the phone but now it freezes, movement is very choppy and laggy and I often have reset it using the power and home button when it stops responding completely.

      It is possible to downgrade to the previous version? Can I uninstall and reinstall then not run the update or is it too late to get the previous version? Will my license still work?

      Rolling it back may not fix the problem but it's worth a try.

      I uninstalled 4.2.1 and reinstalled and it seems to be running a little more smoothly. It doesn't look like I can install a downgraded version without paying for it. Only 4.2.1 is recognized as being licensed. Oh well.

      I do notice that once I turn MyWi off my phone wants to go int Edge even when I have wifi or 3G available. I have to turn wifi off and back on to get it out of Edge.

      Hopefully, I can JB my 3GS soon (new bootrom). I don't have my old shsh blob saved so I can't jb it yet. The 3GS is much fast and will probably handle MyWi much better.

      MyWi (and some others) retain preferences in /private/var/mobile/Preferences.If you remove it -and- have and manually install the old deb it should work unless MyWi's license server is like Apples, and only authorizes the latest version. Uggg.
