No more tethering after Jailbreak?

Hi guys, after a long battle I managed to upgrade my unlocked/jailbreaked iphone 3G to iOS 4.1 (without changing the baseband - i used Pwnage Tool 4.1.2 and ultrasn0w). I have now reception with my German carrier and everything is great, BUT whenever I try to tether with that iPhone (either USB or Bluetooth) the screen flashes and then only shows the pineapple. What do I have to do to make it work again? (After the initial jailbreak/unlock 2 years ago with quickpwn the tethering worked just fine).

Thanks!!!

I could be wrong but did you answer your own question? It must be baseband related ...

no change in baseband, yet before tethering worked...

.... now all i get is the short flash and then the pineapple. I used a custom made ipsw to not change the baseband with the 4.1 update, so why would the tethering work before the update and not now? Am i missing something?
And what does the flash+pineapple mean?

Some of the Tethering tricks that worked in version 3 of the software does not work in version 4. You have to get MIWI or Tetherme from Cydia to solve your problem. It is not a baseband issue.
