    Damn dude. 3.1 isn't even out yet. Give it a rest. Better yet, go install it and let us know. Yeah, ding ding.

    ^^ +1 I lost my tethering hack due to SL (10.6 broken the helper app) but I am not willing to loose the jailbreak nor my unlock.

    SF, do you know how I can re-enable tethering. I used SSH via Wi-Fi.

    Yeah, I know that. Go update your phone and then ask the question. ITS NOT OUT YET! Why are you asking a question that has no answer as of right now? Go install it and see if it breaks tethering. Jeesh.

    I used iPhoneModem.de helper app. It opens and works fine, but as soon as it starts setting up the connection, it crashes.

    I can't find the original instruction but I do remember that it requires that you configure iTunes to accept a "test" carrier file which would enable tethering, and you turn off the function afterward.

    you need to put the carrier file in one of the iTunes directory, turn on carrier testing mode for iTunes, load the carrier file using iTunes, sync the carrier profile to iPhone, and that is it. I don't have the original instruction but I do have the command

    "defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE"

    and the binary carrier file has the name ATT_US.ipcc

    I use a mac so it might not work with PC.

    I don't have the original instruction so you might want to google the command and see if you can find the instruction.

    Tethering has been broken in 3.1 since beta 2. It still is in beta 3 and I doubt it will be working in the final release.

    does tethering still work with them?

    att can suck it honestly. i'll be waiting for the iphone dev team to release their updated jailbreak/unlock methods. hopefully this will also take care of tethering.
