Thankfully pod2g has announced that he’s also succeeded in untethering the jailbreak.
Heya! My iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1 is now untethered
Obviously, this is an important step towards public release of the iOS 5.1 jailbreak. This past Monday pod2g
The first called, “Tethering” by Filipe Pina makes changes to the files that the preferences framework makes, then restarts the service. The second called, “Tether” by Ryan Petrich uses the preferences frameworks and calls the functions that the settings app calls.
According to BigBoss, both toggles work well. You can download togles and SBSettings via Cydia (for jailbreaked iPhones only).

Geohot has released his BlackSn0w utility. BlackSn0w is an unlock for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. It supports the latest firmware 3.1 and 3.1.2 with baseband 05.11.07 and enables official tethering. Available for both Windows and Mac.
Here is a quick tutorial:
If you havn’t done the jailbreak: go to
If your device is already jailbroken – run Cydia, add repository blackra1n.com and install blacksn0w. That’s it!
The latest version of blackra1n is RC3. It now has hacktivation support, 15 second speed improvement, Tiger+PPC support.
PS: If you just bought a new iPhone 3GS or have one that was made recently (approximately after 40th week after iPhone 3GS release): your device has a new BootROM. Unfortunately it is impossible to run regular jailbreak with this new BootROM. There is a sloution – tethered jailbreak. Everything including unlock will work fine. However every time you restart your iPhone, you need to plug it to a computer with blackra1n installed.
We have seen a video from Verizon named iDon’t and an ansfer from iPhone fans – the video named iDon’t Care. Here’s a new one, called iCan. It describes what a jailbreaked iPhone can do:
Here is the list of apps for that:
Nice, isn’t it?
This version provides a tethering jailbreak for the new iPhone 3GS with the updated Bootrom. GeoHot lists these new features on his blog:

AdMob, a company that supplies advertising services for iPhone developers, says that between September 15th and 22nd only 23% of devices were updated to iPhone OS 3.1. This counts only devices that run apps with AdMob ads.
Some more statistics: 51% are still running OS 3.0, and 19% are still running v2.2.1, while 7% are still running v2.0 or earlier.
The reasons, as always, are very different. The update for the iPod Touch costs money, there are problems with internet tethering in 3.1, there is no firmware 3.1 jailbreak tool for Windows and it is impossible to jailbreak iPhone 3GS.
Have you perfomed the upgrade or not? Please, leave a comment why.
Then scroll down to the Tethering & Internet Settings, then choosing your country and provider. This works for both AT&T and T-Mobile, and will let you install the appropriate configuration. Just be careful though, that AT&T doesn’t officially sponsor this and might charge you extra for using tethering while you’re not supposed to.
And if this disables visual voicemail on your phone, just go and reset your network settings, and it should be fixed. If that doesn’t work, try updating your phone with an older version of the AT&T carrier settings.
Many iPhone 3G users would like to use internet on a desktop or notebook through their phone. There were several solutions: iPhoneModem, NetShare, 3Proxy.. they all used SSH and SOCKS proxy. One of the working ones was described here get internet on a desktop or notebook through IPhone 3G.
Couple days ago PdaNet (fullname is PdaNet WiFi Router) was ported to iPhone. Now our life is much much easier.
What you need is a jailbreaked iPhone with Cydia installer. Then install PdaNet.
All you need to do is simply to create an ad-hoc WiFi network on the computer and connect your iPhone to it (
Some nice features:
One last note: over-usage of PdaNet’s tethering is likely to draw the eye and the ire of AT&T (if you use this provider), so use with care!
Warning – Tethering your iPhone is against the iPhone data plan terms. AT&T could slap you with huge fees if you overuse this. I recommend only using it during emergencies.
Here is a basic plan (by the way, this should work for old IPhone also):
Later we’ll discuss it with more details.
Step 1: Jailbreak your iPhone
Step 2: Install 3Proxy and Terminal
During the jailbreak, Cydia should have appeared on one of your app pages: use it and let Cydia load and self-update.
Then head to Install, All Packages, then find MobileTerminal and 3Proxy (3Proxy is at the bottom). Install both and hit your Home button. Your phone will restart and you’ll see Terminal installed on your home screen. 3Proxy isn’t a GUI app and as such won’t have an icon.
Step 3: Create an ad-hoc Wifi network using your laptop
Using whatever wireless software suite you have, create an ad-hoc network. On a Mac it’s in the Airport menu, under “Create network…”. Name it something inconspicuous. I called mine “baladoux”. On your iPhone, join the ad-hoc network.
Step 4: Find your iPhone’s IP address
Then, hit the blue arrow next to it, and wait for your IP address to show up:
Memorize (or write down) this IP address. You will need it later.
Step 5: Open Terminal and run the proxy program
Simple enough. Open Terminal, type “socks” and hit return.
Nothing will appear to happen, but the SOCKS server will be running. You can hit the home button to push Terminal to the background (remember to terminate it later, by switching back to Terminal and holding the Home button until it closes).
Step 6: Open Safari on the iPhone and open a web page
Any page will do. I recommend http://jailbreak-iphone.ru
This step is important. The page will take a while to load. When Safari realizes it can’t get to the Internet using the ad-hoc Wifi, it will do some internal magic to switch back to 3G for Internet while still on your ad-hoc network. That lets the proxy do its thing.
Step 7: Configure your browser
In Firefox, head to Preferences, and under Advanced, Network, hit Settings:
Then, fill in the iPhone’s IP address (which you memorized earlier) into the SOCKS Host field, and put 1080 as the port number. Make sure all other proxy fields are blank and/or 0 as shown:
Then, since the proxy doesn’t forward DNS, you will also have to change an advanced option in Firefox. In the Firefox URL bar, enter “about:config” and hit Enter
In Filter, type “socks” and then double-click “network.proxy.socks_remote_dns” to make its value “true”.
That should be all you need! Firefox should be able to browse the Internet through your iPhone’s 3G connection.
Tethering costs a lot of battery life on the iPhone so make sure you have it plugged in. When you’re done, make sure to quit Terminal by opening it back up and pressing and holding the Home button until it quits.
