    Hi, I just got an iphone 6 so I lost my jailbreak. I wanted to get free tethering again and I was able to get a tethering app that uses socks protocol for tethering however the only problem is I can only get it to work with my old powerbook and not on my windows 7 laptop.

    These are the steps I followed trying to get it to work on my windows 7 laptop however I did not have any luck. Any help would greatly appreciated. thanks

    Windows 7
    Create an ‘ad-hoc’ WiFi network on your laptop:
    Open Control Panel from the Start menu.
    Open Network and Internet.
    Select Network and Sharing Center.
    Click Set up a new connection or network.
    Select Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network.
    Enter Tethering for the Network name and a password (if desired).
    Select the ‘ad-hoc’ network from the WiFi list by clicking the WiFi icon on the left in the task bar.
    Connect the iPhone to the ‘ad-hoc’ WiFi network:
    Launch the Settings app on the iPhone.
    Tap Wi-Fi.
    Select the ‘ad-hoc’ network.
    Click the small blue arrow on the ‘ad-hoc’ network row
    Go to the static tab
    Enter for the IP Address and for the Subnet Mask
    Launch iRandomizer Numbers on the iPhone (verify there is a strong cell connection available).
    If necessary, wait for the iPhone to finish assigning the Static IP Address. iRandomizer Numbers will display the Proxy IP Address to once it has been assigned.
    Set up each browser/application on the laptop to use iRandomizer Numbers. Enter the IP address and port from iRandomizer Numbers for the SOCKS proxy in each application’s network settings. Do NOT enter a username/password here (this is different from the WiFi password you may have set up above for the ‘ad-hoc’ network):
    Open Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network -> Settings.
    Select Manual Proxy Configuration and enter the IP address and port from iRandomizer Numbers.
    Select Use this proxy server for all protocols.
    Type about:config in the open URL box at the top.
    Filter for network.proxy.socks_remote_dns and set the value to true.
    Internet Explorer
    Open Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings.
    Make sure Automatic Configuration is NOT checked.
    Open Proxy Server.
    Set up the SOCKS proxy with the IP address and port displayed in iRandomizer Numbers.
    Select Use the same proxy server for all protocols under the Advanced tab.
