Thread: Tethering on 3.1 - MyWi 3.1.8

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

Thank god. I have been trying to use this now that I have updated the phone's firmware and I don't get the blue notification at the top saying that the phone is Tethered. Can't wait for the update.

Great news! Glad to see they are still on top of their game. This is a MUST HAVE app in my book.

Woohoo, well that makes me kinda happier about losing my 3.0.1 jb. Although, I dunno if i will pay for the app. Ill prob wait for some type of free version.

Does this work on non-jb phones?

Why do you guys endorse RockApp so much and not Cydia? All of this is possible using Cydia. I feel Icy and RockApp should be left out.Search Google for "Custom Firmware 3.1.2" if you don't have a Mac and are using Windows!

^^^^ The people that run Rock App wrote this application!! Updates are pushed out through RockApp... not Cydia for this program.

10-15-2009, 02:58 PM #12Same old issues
Still will not work on JB 3.1.2 3GS. Tired of this app over promising and under delivering. Tried everything including uninstalling PDANET.

Very nice! I love RockApp and MyWi! I've been waiting for this update and can't wait to be tethering again! Definitely a "must have" app!

I'm glad something like this finally came out but i am having some problems, not necessarily with the app itself. I am trying to tether the my PSPGo to my iphone3G for internet connection. I was able to start up the tethering on the iphone and connect to it via bluetooth with the PSP. I then try to connect to as a bluetooth modem and it will let me select the iphone but then it asks me to put a dial-up number. I don't know what to do here and it won't let me leave it blank.

do I need to get a diff Internet plan? would this app be using my current Internet iPhone plan? afraid of downloading this app and then receive a 5,000 dollars bill from AT&T

skburke: Can you send your syslog to RockSupport? Perhaps try a reboot after uninstalling PdaNet? (We have had issues with PdaNet in the past and we forcibly remove it - but do not require a reboot - this could be the issue).
I have it working on my 2G/3G/3GS and many others successful on blackra1n 3.1/3.1.2 3GS. Please try a reboot after install if you're having problems.
Not wanting to turn this thread into another Rock vs Cydia thread . So i won't make any comparitive comments. Rock is a browser into APT just like Cydia. Use whichever you like. We made MyWi + updates available on both (thanks to MMi). Yes MyWi will install the RockApp - but that's for you to have the ability to manage your licenses with one central id. exNavy Note: RockApp out of box has 6000+ apps in it. And you can add thousands of more through APT urls
jwalkd9: Sorry - I believe others have had issue with PSP connecting. Note the WiFi router connection is adhoc, and i believe the psp will only connect to infrastructure networks. Not sure about bluetooth - google will be your friend for that
Send iPhone System Log: Via any Intelliborn App -> Click Help / FAQs/ Support -> Scroll to bottom and click on red text at bottom.
MyWi 4.0 - WiFi + USB Tethering on 3.x/4.x/5.x + Simple WiFi Router - Connect Laptops, Touches, + more!
My3G - Facetime over 3G plus HiDef YouTube and more! Trick your iPhone into thinking it's on WiFi
IntelliScreenX - iOS 5 Notification Center the way Apple wished it was.
Tlert - View and Reply to SMS message within any app. Get rid of the ugly default alert messages!
