It may be an old post but it doesn't mean the kill switch isn't still sitting there waiting to be used. I don't think they will use it. I think they would only use a kill switch for something more harmful.

I look at it like this..., I've never heard of anyone having an app already downloaded, and then pulled from their their iDevice.
Also, if this were true that Mr. Jobs could see inside of our "legally protected" devices.... Don't you think he would have caused some interruption for the GREAT ONES???? .... Comex & Planetbeing?

So, while unlikely, it still remains possible, imo.
You've never heard of it being used, mate because it never has been. That's the point of my inquiry. Could this app be the first?
As to your second and last point, I can't give a real answer to that because I and no one else(other than Job's and friends) knows exactly how the thing(kill switch) works.
Though if I had to hazard a guess, I would assume trying to kill an app you can't track(those various people acquire from cydia, for example) and killing an app you can track(better believe Apple can find out exactly which accounts downloaded 'handylight' before it was pulled and possibly even the specific devices the app found its way onto) are two completely different processes.

I enjoy this back and forth between Apple and jailbreakers!
Apple likes to pretend the dev team does not exist, yet secretly uses the Cydia store for their new 'revolutionary' apps.
Cat and mouse...in this case, the jailbreak dev team is winning the war! #TOMANDJERRY

Can i have the app or at least the ipa?

This does not work for windows I tried from page 3 still won't work Mac only

1) It's not allowed in this site
2) If you have the capability to install an IPA in your phone, it means that you're already jailbroken. Which means you should be using one of the many better alternatives such as MyWi or PDAnet.
3) Can you have the app? No. But by all means try to contact Apple and have them re-upload the app into iTunes, just because you're special.If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

I saw this on 9to5 Mac, smart idea

Haha this is some cool stuff. Makes me think of cool possiblites. Imagine an app that had a series of buttons. If you hit the buttons in a correct way it would "reveal a hidden door" and bam now you can tether..

I think Engadget posting it is what killed it. I saw it on there and downloaded it on my iPhone 4 and immediately went to DL it on my wife's 3GS and it was already pulled.
I doubt apple spends much time monitoring MMi or MacRumors but I'm sure they're ALWAYS on Engadget, Gizmodo and BGR.

It is unfortunate that it's already removed, but I kinda have to point out that if we openly talk about stuff like this, it's like we are tipping off Apple about it... If we don't want Apple to catch up on stuff, we need to keep this kind of news discreet. I'm sure Apple has people assigned to read websites like this one. I mean, if not we wouldn't have needed to change our web address to modmyi in the first place. And, it's true other websites would give awway info anyway, so I guess it can't be helped lol.

I got it. I haven't updated my 3.1.2 3GS because I like having the option to tether and stay on the unlimited data plan. Yeah, I could pay for MyWi, but $19.99 feels like a rip-off. Not many apps on iTunes cost that much. Handy Light was $0.99. Now I can finally upgrade to iOS4.

I think if apps are pulled from the app store and are no longer for sale, they should be able to be mentioned they can be found "elsewhere". This is not an app that will be sold anywhere again so it is stealing from noone. I found it and it works nicely
