    Or use a website that will convert the binary form to a readable format.
    On iPhone you can convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities from Cydia), or edit them with iFile (from Cydia).

    Let's not give up on enabling tethering for the 1st generation iPhone. It can be done because the iPhone 3G can tether and if it can, so can our 1st generation iPhone. The only difference between the two is it's capability to use 3G and GPS. This should not hold us back.

    You need to install iPhone OS 3.0 of course, doh !
    - Jailbreak it : link
    - Open Cydia
    - Install the application ActivateMMS2G
    - Reboot your iPhone

    They got MMS working, that leaves just tethering.

    I hear the jailbreak is not going to be released for the moment, so hopefully some Dev Team members get bored and find out how to do it!

    Activate MMS On iPhone 2G ( First Gen ) | iPhone

    I've tried this, but I can't get the "Messages ON" setting to appear. The MMS fields in Cellular data network do show up however.

    UPDATE: I got the setting to appear after rebooting 4 times. Now the apn field in the MMS setting wont save, but the mmsc and the proxy do save. weird.

    I installed ActivateMMS2G w/o luck

    I've rebooted more than four times with no MMS tab in message options. I catualy uninstalled the mod and reinstalled it. No luck here as well.

    Any ideas?

    If I get this fixed what should I enter in the Network settings for AT&T?

    Installing the ATT carrier file from here:

    http://cache.gizmodo.com/assets/iphonetetheringfile.dmg

    And then modifying the State setting to 1023 in /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MobileInternetSharing.plist got the toggle switch for Internet Tetherhing to show up on my 2G under Settings > General > Network. My mac recognized the connection, but it's showing as disconnected. Console shows this:

    I used to have an aircard that worked for 2G and 3G. When no 3G service was available it would pick up Edge. What happens if there is no 3G service available for the iPhone? Perhaps someone with a 3G can test tethering somewhere without 3G service and see if tethering works? If so, we know it's simply settings of some type and not that it's specifically looking for a 3G connection.

    **EDGE: Looks like the 3G will drop back to EDGE if 3G isn't available according to this guy's blog. So this proves that tethering can be done over edge using the built-in apple app:

    Also, it'd be good if we could see the console output of someone with a 3G using tethering.

    Also, there's work going on this over here:

    Tried what jefe1 was saying and had the same result. It'll probably need a similar patch to ActivateMMS2G to get everything working right... Here's hoping it'll be soon
