    So I jailbroke my iPhone 4, downloaded MyWi, and turned on WiFi Hotspot.

    My MBP automatically recognizes my iPhone 4 under Devices, not as a WiFi hotspot...

    How do I make my MBP recognize my iPhone 4 as a hotspot, not as a Device?
    Thanks

    I remember that the SSID doesn't broadcast.....you'll probably have to enter ti manually in airport to connect it that way....I think....been long since I had to do this sorry

    You can't.
    Mywi currently only supports adhoc wifi connection.
    After 4.3 is jb you will have real wifi hotspot.

    That is a hotspot. Its connecting over wifi to your device. Its just doing some adhoc stuff so the computer sees it as a device.

    EDIT: Right what he said. Not "true" hotspot so that wouldnt work
