Thread: iTunes 9 breaks tethering???

  1. #1
    Default iTunes 9 breaks tethering???
    I am using the AT&T 5.0 carrier file modded to leave the option in settings for "Cellular Data Network" and enable tethering. Everything works, VVM, tethering, MMS. However, when I turn tethering to "on" & "USB Only" at work on my Windows 7 laptop, the ethernet connection never show up and in network connections and no tethering. When I go back into the Setting on iPhone, Tethering is gone from Network. Using iTunes 9, I can manually installed the 5.0 carrier file again and tethering is back. Is iTunes 9 disabling my tethering? When I connect the iPhone to the Windows laptop, iTunes is not open and I am not syncing. I tried removing itunes and only installing AppleMobileDeviceSupport, but I get the same result. Any suggestions? I'm on iPhone 3G w/ 3.0.1 firmware and 5.0 carrier file. Thanks.

    You might try searching the forums for Stealth's 6.0 carrier file. I believe that may still work since you are on the 3.0.x firmware. I don't have it lying around anymore sadly, but if I can find it, I'll post it up here on this thread.

    It's not the iTunes version but your firmware version that is affecting your tethering.

    Pretty sure that's not the case considering his original message...

    Default 3.0.1
    It was my understanding that the 3.0.1 firmware did not break tethering at all. 3.0.1 is basically 3.0 firmware with the SMS security fix. I am not on the 3.1 firmware. Also, it seems odd that if it was the firmware version breaking the tethering feature, then why does it work fine when iTunes 9 is not installed? Thanks.

    My bad, I assumed you were on 3.1. But, I have iTunes 9 and 3.0 on one of my phones and tethering still works. (5.5 version)
