TetherMe works on jailbroken iOS 4.1 device

Update

Update 2

The one thing that i missed dearly when i updated my iPhone 3GS from iOS 4.0.1 to 4.0.2 was the loss of the ability to do native internet tethering. When AT&T finally decided to allow tethering for iPhone users, it came with some caveats. In order to tether, you not only have to sign up with one of the new limited data plans, you also have to pay an extra $20 a month to enable tethering. Naturally, i refused to cough up more dough for the shitty reception that i have been getting so i went the “rogue” route to enable tethering on my iPhone.

Prior to updating the firmware to iOS 4.0.2, i was able to set up tethering by installing a debian package that modified CommCenter – allowing iOS to accept an unsigned profile – and then installed a customized profile. This method worked fine until i upgraded my iPhone to iOS 4.0.2.


TetherMe package in Cydia

I have read about a paid Cydia package called TetherMe which allows native tethering on iOS 4.0.1 devices. Because there was no indication that this $1.99 app would work on iOS 4.1, i held off on installing it until i chanced upon this website while i was searching for a way to enable native tethering in iOS 4.1. As i did not want to pay for something that would not work, i decided to give this hacked package a try. After installing the hacked TetherMe, i was able to get native tethering working! Immediately after testing it, i uninstalled the hacked version of TetherMe and purchased the legitimate copy of TetherMe from the Cydia store. I am happy to say that the newer version of TetherMe (version 1.3-16) works perfectly!

hey just curious as to what source you used to try out tetherme.

I’m interested in this app also

The Cydia source is BigBoss.

what about the hacked version?

ktulaOctober 23rd, 2010 at 23:54

The hacked version does not come from any Cydia source.

TetherMe 1.3-17 broke itself. I had tethering for about 5 min after updating and then it was gone!

Went into the menu and it had changed back to “set up tethering” or whatever, like I never had it installed. So, unless AT&T randomly send out the tether-kill signal, the update doesn’t work, do not get it yet.

Paul: It’s $1.99, anybody can afford that, no need to ask for the hacked version. It worked, until today’s update.

@CynicalDriver: Thanks for warning about the latest version of TetherMe. I was just about to update to it! Do you have iOS 4.1 on your iPhone as well?

@CynicalDriver: I tested TetherMe 1.3-17. It works on my iPhone 4.
