    Default How to: Internet on iPhone through USB. No WIFI. No EDGE.
    This will not work if you iPhone is not Jailbroken. You must have SSH already installed.

    Before you begin, make sure your iPhone is connected with your 30pin USB to your computer(Computer must have connection to internet),
    and that SSH is turned on, and make sure EDGE is turned on.


    What you will need:
    -- Proxy - ccproxy - http://www.youngzsoft.net/ccproxy/ccproxysetup.exe
    -- Archive with all necessary internal iPhoneUSB - Народ
    -- Net Framework 3.5 - Download details: .NET Framework 3.5
    -- iTunes

    1. Extract Archive to desktop.


    2. Install ccproxy on your computer, then run it.

    3. Double click, or execute, file 1_start_ssh_tunnel.cmd - it opens a tunnel between your phone and your computer (do not close the window, you can reduce, postpone or scale down). Remember the phone must be connected to a computer via usb.


    4. Next set a proxy for EDGE on your phone.
    execute winscp.cmd, navigate to folder / private / var / preferences / SystemConfiguration
    You'll need to transfer the file preferences.plist to you computer, and edit, or paste over, the Proxy area.

    <key>Proxies</key>
    <dict>
    <key>HTTPEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>HTTPPort</key>
    <integer>808</integer>
    <key>HTTPProxy</key>
    <string>127.0.0.1</string>
    <key>HTTPProxyType</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>HTTPSEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>HTTPSPort</key>
    <integer>808</integer>
    <key>HTTPSProxy</key>
    <string>127.0.0.1</string>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigEnable</key>
    <integer>0</integer>
    </dict>


    5. Once edited transter preferences.plist back to your iphone and overwrite the existing file.

    6. Click the Options button in ccproxy, and click the "Advanced", then click the tab Networks, then untick with "disable external users" save and go back to main ccproxy window.


    7. Execute file 1_start_ssh_tunnel.cmd - it opens a tunnel between your phone and your computer (do not close the window, you can reduce, postpone or scale down). The phone must be connected to a computer via usb.

    8. Execute proxy_tunnel.cmd - opens port 808 on your phone. (do not close the window, you can reduce, postpone or scale down).

    The Internet should now work!

    I do not take any credit for creating this walkthrough. All credit goes to the team at ironphone.ru all i did was translate it well.

    If you can figure out how to do all that crap, you can figure out how to hack the wifi encryption on your neighbors router.

    hahaha, I suppose so. Better yet, if you have that much time to waste on it, might as well drive over to your neighborhood supermart and buy a damn router.

    actually the whole process takes about 10 mins. once it's done you can reconnect every time in less than 3 mins. its just good for those folks who don't have wifi at work, or don't have edge, maybe they have tmobile w/o the internet pkg

    I think this is a great program. It's good for getting internet in places where internet is very restrictive. I can't get Wifi on my iPhone when I'm in the office (and the walls are so thick, G3 and Edge can't reach my phone), so this is a good way to get around that.

    need some help with this anyone. attempting to do this but not sure which proxy im suppose to edit. within my list i have if i remember correctly three proxy settings. if i understand correctly im suppose to edit a proxy to read like above.

    the last line in my command window reads...

    "Remote port forwarding from 808 enabled"

    which means its active but i have not access to the internet on my phone.

    any help?
