Thread: MyWi and WiFi crashing

I did the jailbreak redsn0w tonight on my phone. Got it to work on the second try. My first app to install is the MyWi. I saw the warning about Corona when I installed the app. I'm having the same problem with it connecting and immediately disconnecting. Clearly, adding the Corona app will be necessary. Now, what do I need to do to make that happen?

Larry - Don't waste your time with Corona. The problems with MyWi run deeper than that, the developer has suggested a number of things to different people, and several members here have posted about trying them. Myself included, and the answer is... No results.
The Bluetooth Stack in 5.0.1 is completely different than in 4.x, and that is why the ondemand doesn't function. I managed to get the BT connection (not on demand) to function after also installing TetherMe, but this is not a great solution because the ipad retains the connection even when it is NOT in use, and on my 3gs, MyWi would continue chiming that it had established a connection... Even AFTER I had disabled the BT connection within MyWi!
Yes, having two different tethering programs probably isn't a great idea either, but without TetherMe, the only thing that would work is the wifi hotspot. ONCE per reboot, and then you lose ALL wifi function if it times out or you shut it off until you reboot. This is NOT normal functionality, but the dev hasn't addressed this at all that I have seen. I don't like using the wifi hotspot anyway, it eats my battery... But yesterday, I had to reboot my phone to get the regular wifi (from the phone) to work again - It had crashed again just as if I had used MyWi, which I haven't had to use in days.
There is something still interacting from MyWi, even though it is completely disabled. This program is broken, and blaming it on a "different jailbreak" is just avoiding the issue. All we can do right now is wait for the dev to update the program and continue telling them that the "fixes" don't work.

For those people who have the issue where their iPhone loses its own connection while tethering in MyWi, the latest corona update seems to have resolved the issue permanently (unlike my last post, where you had to reinstall corona after each reboot for the fix to work). Tested on three iPhones and through multiple reboots.. Still working. Hope the other issues get resolved soon as well.

I was also able to get the MyWi hotspot working properly after applying redsnow 0.9.10b4 over 0.9.10b3. 3G still works on the phone while connected, and it does not crash after turning off the hotspot feature. OnDemand is still broken (as other posters have alluded to), so there still needs to be a fix for that feature.
02-09-2012, 03:11 AM #26Corona seems to fix it - for now
Can concurr that installing the latest version of Corona via Cydia seems to fix the WiFi crash. Not ideal....

I tried adding corona (3gs, os 5.05) to mywi and got no data message after a bit then the usual spin and shut down from mywi. It will only tether for me which makes it useless for my purposes. I am going to try the PDAnet and see if that works.
02-21-2012, 02:18 PM #28Another unpleasant side effect of MyWi on iOS 5.0.1
I personally have the following issue when I install MyWi on iOS 5.0.1 (in addition to the hotspot feature not functioning and crashing wifi): it interfers with the airplane mode!
When activating the airplane mode, I can see the airplane icon instead of carrier name + 3G or Wifi icon, but I still receive phone calls and smses!
I wrote to the technical support a few weeks ago, without any answer. What is Intelliborn doing?!
02-24-2012, 08:05 AM #29
I have the same issue as most here but with my phone, I lose data all together untill i uninstall mywi. And if I try to reinstall mywi, the phone goes into a reboot loop. Glad I spent $20 on software that doesn't work. Thx intelliborn for such great support!
02-24-2012, 12:18 PM #30
Never had the reboot loop problem after reinstalling MyWi though.
03-19-2012, 07:42 AM #31
Now it works for me!!!!
On Iphone 3gs. Jailbreake with redsn0w_win_0.9.10b6 and then reinstall MyWi from Cydia. Reboot and, YES IT WORKS........:-)
03-19-2012, 02:51 PM #32Absolutely not!
I just tried to install it again, based on your indication.
The symptom for me is the same as before : MyWi messes up with the Airplane mode.
I don't recommend installing it as long as they haven't explicitely corrected this problem.
03-19-2012, 02:56 PM #33
Do you have a cracked or outdated version of MyWi? If so this may be causing the problem...I will no longer be very active here anymore due to a variety of reasons.
03-19-2012, 03:05 PM #34
No no, it's the official one and I've just installed it from cydia.
However I respringed but did not reboot. This may be the problem? (I doubt it. I tried then and the version has not evolved since)
03-19-2012, 03:40 PM #35
No. I have paid for the focking thing, which feels suspiciously like money flushed down the drain.
I paid for PDAnet, itether, and TetherMe as well. So far, the results are that I can manually initiate (With TetherMe) a BT connection and it will remain active and only disconnect when I kill the BT on the ipad entirely... And I don't need to reboot my phone constantly with it.
But any sort of an on-demand connection, or ANY functionality with MyWi that doesn't require me to constantly reboot my phone? No. Nothing working like it did before, and this seems ENTIRELY plausible that it was behaving in this manner from the moment iOS 5 came out.
The developers who continue to accept money from new clients because they haven't the BALLS to post a "this is not yet working" warning on Cydia... I think there is a special circle waiting for them. BE HONEST that it doesn't work right now, WE WILL FIND OUT ANYWAY! It isn't like we are expecting perfection when Apple continues to change stuff in this cat-and-mouse game, we know it will happen.
Communication with your users. Get some. BS - Stop providing it instead of communication. This was not caused by Corona, ergo it cannot be FIXED by Corona.
03-19-2012, 03:50 PM #36I confirm
I confirm that it was working fine until iOS5.
I also feel quite pi**ed off by the fact the the developers never replied my emails.
03-20-2012, 03:58 AM #37
If this is coming from multiple people, I would say it's the developers fault, Not yours. Try to contact Intelliborn under the package where it says you can contact them.I will no longer be very active here anymore due to a variety of reasons.
03-20-2012, 04:00 AM #38
Good luck with that he's been Mia for a while
03-20-2012, 04:08 AM #39Intelliborn
I confirm that I contacted them on the Intelliborn contact address.
I agree, it looks like they are MIA (or rather, missing in inaction )
03-20-2012, 04:09 AM #40
Wow... You're selling people packages for money and you won't even answer their questions, That is one bad dev...I will no longer be very active here anymore due to a variety of reasons.
