Mark - May 3, 2010 at 3:36am
No, I can't boot up...

I followed these instructions carefully and I was in a neverending reboot. I ssh'd back in and erased what I did. I've been able to use my iphone, but have somehow sms messaging no longer works. When I click on messaging the screen where there should be a list of my old messages shows up blank and launches a new message for me to send then it closes. I have not been able to get or send my sms messages since. Please someone have a fix to this or tell me which command to use to get my sms messaging back to normal. I've restored like 5 times, I tried ultrasn0w and blacksn0w to unlock. I even downgraded back to 3.1 without any luck. iphone 3g 8gb jb: pwnage ul:blacksn0w Thanks in advance!

iphone crash after following these tutorials to enable tethering!! I am in big trouble with my iphone 3GS, jailbroken with Blackra1n, firmware 3.1.2 and baseband 05.11.07. I am using the last itunes (9.0.2) My goal was to to enable tethering on my iphone. I first installed openSSH by following this tutorial: https://iclarified.com/5637. Then I installed Fugu with this tutorial : https://iclarified.com/2096. At this time I reboot the iphone and everything was fine. Then I finally followed this tutorial to enable tethering : https://iclarified.com/5634 I think I did not reboot at this time. To install my carrier settings I used this website: bluebanana.fr I installed this carrier settings « Bouygues Telecom France v6.3 ». After all this I restarted my iphone and it never restart again ! It always freeze on the apple logo and restart as itself. Its a neverending reboot loop. I try the recovering and hard recovering with itunes. Itunes can see the iphone but when it start the recover it freeze with an empty status bar on the iphone. Then itunes stop and show « waiting for iphone error 9 ». What can I do to save my iphone ! Please help

Ugh! I should've checked here before doing this! Mine is in a neverending reboot as well. Anyone know a fix to this?

Check this website before you do that: http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2009/11/03/tutorial-how-to-tether-on-an-iphone-3g-or-3gs-running-os-3-1-2/. Enjoy!

Thanks for clarifying tutorials. This tethering thing works like a charm.

Since the is no Fugu fo Windows users, use NetDragon iPhone PC Suite to do file transfer, permission change and renaming of files. For patching and SHA1 compare, I used Terminal application on OS X.

Too cool - all works fine (posting this using tethering now). Thanks for another easy to follow and handy tutorial!
Sam - November 16, 2009 at 1:38am
This is too much work. I just install RockID app, then open RockID to download 3G tethering. Then, go setting--> general--> network. Tethering ready
Roberto - October 25, 2009 at 6:54am
Thanks. Most helpful. Now to tether to jolicloud(Ubuntu) somehow...

Works perfectly. The instructions aren't the clearest and I'm no expert but this has just worked fine on 3gs 3.1.2 This tutorial made the internet tethering option return in the network settings page, I then reinstalled the 02 profile that I had previously been using and turning it on. I did try using PDAnet from Cydia but its not great, the connection was dropping out and the speeds were not what I would get from standard tethering. Thank you to whoever found/created the tutorial. Tom

Did it. does not change anything. I mean everything looks okay and the phone still works etc, but no tethering.
briane - October 22, 2009 at 2:04pm
Does allthis mean that you willonly be tethered by wi-fi using the networkIP address installed and if one wanted to tether away fromthe networkone would have to find a wi-fi network and get its IP address and reload
Brian - October 21, 2009 at 1:48pm
I did all of the above, and the installed the profile at Benm.at. The tethering works, but then it stops my visual voice mail from working.... Anyway to get both of them working at the same time?
Jonathan - October 21, 2009 at 1:02pm
I finally got the commcenter hack installed, and did all the other steps in this tutorial. Total Waste of Time! the musclenerd Tethering does not work on a PowerPC Mac. PDANet does work, and I recommend it. Very easy, MUCH easier than this tutorial for the musclenerd hack, and MUCH easier than enabling the tethering toggle with BenM's files, which do NOT actually enable tethering at all.. I dont know why people dont just use PDANet. It was free too.
bndmod - October 20, 2009 at 5:11pm
Hey, what happend if SHA1isn't correct? We must stop the procces, but it's any way to enable tethering?
Johnny2006 - October 20, 2009 at 12:20pm

Metal-Geek - October 20, 2009 at 4:04pm

Has anyone heard if dev team is working on a 5.11.07 unlock? I have two paper weights sittin here so I was just wondering if there was any new news?
Mark - October 20, 2009 at 3:10pm
two?? you'd think people would learn their lesson after the first time, to not update their itunes or iphones without the greenlight from dev team!! =p
Josh - October 20, 2009 at 4:35pm
They are just two I recently bought to jailbreak, unlock and resell that had already been updated. I have two others that I use that are unlocked....... So yeah I am smart enough....

try this source: repo.sinfulphone.com. any comments about "oohhhhh thats not ethical" well I'm a user not a dev or a hacker, I basically shop around and somtimes I stumble by cool stuff. take ur ethical issues with the ones who cracked not the ones who're using it...

sarvary70 - October 19, 2009 at 7:12pm
HI Iclarified! Thanks for your hard wrok to bring us your nice tutorials . I am just wondering to know when we do this procedure and start using the internet via our iphone will It be charge able by our provider or it could be free? I heard from UK o2 you have to subscribe to their internet service via iphone. Anybody knows regarding this can reply me thanks in advance.
asd - October 19, 2009 at 7:17pm
hi u need to have a data plan on your iphone and yes the amount of data consumed by tethering should fall into your allowed limit per month otherwise you'll be paying for the extra data consumed !
sarvary70 - October 19, 2009 at 7:41pm
I am having unlimited internet use on my iphone but not to use internet via iphone in my laptop (ththering) do I have to pay ? thanks dude

turimblar - October 21, 2009 at 3:26am
I have tried the dutch ifoneguide´s Tether for iPhone 3GS on Cydia, but it didn´t give the tethering-feature, and when I tried to remove the package, the result was an endless loop with the Apple-logo. Had to do a restore. Wish these things just worked OTB ;-)
