    I have the tethering hack installed and everything works perfectly, but I am on OS 3.0. Has anyone tried this hack on the latest OS 3.1.3? Does your SMS & Voicemail work after the hack?

    It does not work. You have to be jailbroke to tether on 3.1.3.

    Follow up to original question

    I have a 3GS on 3.1.3 which has been JB by Spirit. I have not been able to find any information on activating Tethering on this release. All of the information with regard to tethering including modifying Comm centre all indicate it is only for 3.1.2 and not to be done on 3.1.3.

    Do not want to use MYWI and am quite capable of modifying any files I need to modify but cannot find the information.

    You have to use MyWi AFAIK if you're on 3.1.3.

    I think he can still activate the native tethering.
    Its not Mywi only. There's also PDaNet and a few other options.
    Install the tethering hack from www.sinfuliphonere.com/ thru cydia.

    Those only work for 3.1.2. It's sinfuliphonerepo btw.

    I didn't mention PDANet, since it's also another one you have to pay for, and MyWi is much better.

    Interesting.
    I wonder if patching the commcenter hack would also work with 3.1.3

    I used redsn0w-mac_0.9.3 to JB, then used THIS to enable tethering. You need to have the 3.1.2 installer on your HD.

    I've done this several times. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I hav it turned on on my iPhone, but I want to do it to my girlfriend's phone. I guess I could "downgrade" the OS to 3.0.1. Any good tutorial on how to do that? Restore in iTunes won't work because I don't have a copy of 3.0.1

    there is a comm center hack for 3.1.3, but according to MuscleNerd it is not for use on Spirit JB. reading his twitter, some have tried it a it worked, but he warns against it. reason being is that the way Spirit works, it loads during iphone boot. if the patched commcenter happens to somehow load first, phone can lock up and not boot. may require restore to fix.
