Personal Hotspot Sb Setting's toggle?

i have been trying to find a toggle for sb settings where i can turn switch on and off the personal hotspot (TetherMe Cracked) function since i only use it for a few minutes at a time,And it'd be really convenient to be able to toggle it off and on whenever i need to Thanks

Paying for it still doesn't solve the fact that he needs an SB setting toggle. The current tether toggle doesn't seem to work right.

I'm assuming he meant he cracked the personal hotspot function using a legitimate version of TetherMe. I'm in the same boat.

If not, then he still should buy it.

It's a new iOS feature, so I'm assuming a Dev will be submitting a toggle for this eventually. I think it will be one of the most used toggles out there once it's available. I know I'll be looking for it!

Will a toggle like this toggle the hotspot function of tetherme and off or toggle the native hotspot function on and off? I know that tetherme uses the native hotspot function but I assume that you want to enable it via tetherme if you're trying to go undetected, right?

If you have TetherMe installed, you are using the native hotspot functionality. There is not difference between the two as you have described so you are not going undetected by launching via the TetherMe switch in Settings...it just sends you over to the native app.

I want a toggle for the native hotspot feature.

What you want is the SBSetting Tethering toggle. Not to be confused with the SBSetting Tether toggle. Works great for me!

Are you using TetherMe or do you have tethering legitimately enabled on your account? Because it doesn't seem to work for me. When I use that toggle, where it says says "personal hotspot" in the first level of settings, it just removes the "off" part, but none of my wireless devices can see it, until I actually drill down one more spot to where the actual switch is. (Which now already turned on).

I don't understand this. Isn't the whole point of using tetherme so that you use the native hotspot functionality without being detected?

This same thing happens to me. Is this not happening to everyone? If I use the sbsetting tethering toggle I still have to go to the Personal Hotspot setting for it to start broadcasting. It works to toggle it off though.

Not working for me either on 4.3.1. Only turns Tethering Off.

Just wanted to let you guys know a working toggle came out yesterday. I installed it today, and everything works as it should. Just search Cydia for Personal Hotspot SBSettings.

Awesome...we've been waiting for the real deal to come out. Thanks!

Edit: Just tried it and I'm happy to say that it is what we've been waiting for!

Broken on 5.1.1. Can turn personal hotspot on via that toggle but can't turn it off. Confirmed by others as well: http://www.everythingicafe.com/forum...roperly.89259/

A fix would be highly appreciated.

On iOS 5.1.1, if you use the toggle to enable the Personal Hotspot, exit SBSettings, go back to SBSettings, it will show that the hotspot is disabled. However, if you go to Settings > Personal Hotspot, you will see that it's still on.

Once you enable the Personal Hotspot via the SBSettings toggle, you won't be able to turn it off by toggling it on SBSettings. The only way to turn it off is to go to Settings to do it.

There's no fix yet.

Neither toggler is perfect

Tried both "SBSettings Tethering toggle" and "Personal Hotspot SBSettings toggle" and I get varied response, neither of them perfect:

SBSettings Tethering Toggle v1.0.1:
Icon correctly toggles its color in SBSettings screen; however, internet sharing on the iPhone does not turn on until I actually visit the screen under the normal iPhone Settings > Internet Sharing screen (see note 1). Once I simply visit the screen -- without making any changes -- my iPhone begins sharing its 3G internet via WiFi. I have not tested using the USB cable or Bluetooth. The toggle does successfully turn off internet sharing without the need to visit the Settings screen.

Personal Hotspot SBSettings toggle v1.0:
The icon also toggles to green color when tapped in the SBSettings screen; however, tapping "refresh" in SBSettings makes it turn back to red. Otherwise, it has the same effect as turning on SBSettings Tethering Toggle - I have to visit the Settings>Internet Sharing screen for it to take effect. Using Personal Hotspot SBSettings toggle does not work at all when trying to turn off internet sharing; I must use Settings>Internet Sharing to make the change (not simply visting the screen; I must actually toggle it here).

(Note 1): My iPhone is set to use Spanish as the main language.Where I've written "Internet Sharing" above, I'm translating from "Compartir Internet". I don't know what the precise text is on an English language iPhone.

As far as I know, there's still no perfect answer to give us a shortcut for sharing the 3G data link.

I'm using an iPhone 4 GSM (model MC605B) running iOS5.1.1 (9B208) Jailbroken by redsn0w

6.1?

Any news if this is working any better on iOS 6.1? (I'm still on 5 so can't test just yet)

Really, might be a reason to try nc settings, how do I know if the hotspot is on because of tether me when it is turned on through the NC toggle
