Yes it is really not that hard, the last JB for 5.1.1 was very easy, basically plug and play. Cydia acts as your App Store, just take it slow on what you add and tweak and it really is a great experience.

However you are correct there is no JB for the 5 yet, but i think once iOs 6.1 drops we will see it.

I just jailbroke my ATTUsa iPhone 5, FW 6.1
installed PdaNet, it did not work, I could not enable tethering either by USB, nor by hotspot.
Removed PdaNet

That and many jb packages will obviously need to be updated. The jb has only been out for hours now.

after installing PDANet, my Weather app stopped opening, touching the icon would open the app and then immediately it would quit.

Uninstalling PDANet did not solve the problem, I had to restore my iPhone 5 to remove the Jailbreak.

If you're paying for tethering on your plan then you're fine and have nothing to worry about. The posts in this thread are for people trying to tether without paying their carrier for it.

The way the salesman explained it, I could do it myself and if I had issues to come see him.. He never said it was a extra cost..

> salesman said he'd set it up for me.

that means he added the feature to your account. Look at your bill, you're paying 20 a month for tethering, if you're with ATT Usa.

The alternative was to Jailbreak and use a Cydia app called TetherMe, that costs $5 one time. If you want to know whether you can jailbreak your version of the iPhone software, go to iClarified.com and look at their jail breaking tutorials.

> He never said it was a extra cost..

he also never said it was free.. all features cost money. Tethering is an additional feature that salespeople can add to a customer account. It is an upsell.

Turn it on in your iphone. If it doesnt allow it, it will tell you to call verizon.

The iphone5 allows it allright.
But says "additional usage charges may apply" but I'm unclear if that means another plan cost, or just the additional data used when tethering.

This means if you go over the data limit, you will be charged extra. On my phone, I have unlimited data, but am not allowed to tether unless I pay $30 more a month. When I try to activate tethering on phone, a banner tells me to add a tethering plan.

If someone is on the tiered data plan with Verizon, is tethering included? Should they be able to turn on hotspot tethering and have no additional charge if within their data limit?

Is it something that Verizon has to approve first? Should it be included based on the FCC ruling?
