Thread: Simple Question Needs Simple Answer!

    Default Simple Question Needs Simple Answer!
    I've posted asking about JB'ing an ATT 3G with 3.1. I've got a lot of replies, but then I get the "you don't need to JB to tether."

    So simple question: Can I tether my laptop to my iPhone? If so how?

    Thank you. (Just trying to get unconfused)

    If you have 3.1, you need to jailbreak. That's what I said in your OTHER thread.

    Simtech: I really appreciate your help, honest I do. However, when I started to look for JB'ing 3.1 there are mixed comments. Seems bottomline for 3.1 is that the JB program has not been released yet. So I just need to know if this is true. If it is, I just need to wait until a JB method is released.

    Thank you again.

    You can jailbreak 3g 3.1 I think you need to downgrade first, because 3.1 has an updated baseband, so downgrade to 3.0 or 3.0.1 and download a custom fw 3.1 (or make one on mac w/ pwnage)from this site, look for the forums and follow directions, search the site and you will find you answer.

    heres the link

    no, you don't need to downgrade to JB 3.1. yes, you can JB 3.1. and yes, you can tether without a JB IF your carrier allows that. afaik, no official iphone carrier allows it so far.

    on 3.1, you cannot tether at all, even with a jailbreak. on 3.0, you can tether without a jailbreak by simply installing an update carrier profile from (you have to visit that page from your phone, then search the mobileconfig for your carrier, and there you go)
