Is it luck that I have 3.1 beta 3 and tethering working and I'm not a developer?

    Last night I decided to try out 3.1 B3 even though I thought it wouldn't work since I wasn't a developer. I downloaded the OS from another thread on this forum and IT WORKED. I thought I would need a developer code for it to activate but it didn't. So then I remembered tethering got disabled. Well, I still have the tethering option in my network settings. Is this just a fluke for my iPhone?

    The option will still be there till you try to tether...then it'll go away. Give it a try.

    As far as the beta working...has your phone's UDID ever been registered with a developers account?

    haha you're right, but as for the UDID, no I don't ever remember getting registered with a developer account.

    If you never gave your UDID, then that is weird that it would work. Bummer about the tethering though.

    "I downloaded the OS from another thread on this forum and IT WORKED" can you provide the link to that thread? We can test it.

    My goal is not to find a source for the file, but to test it. If in fact the copy that he has, is working, it could be the GM.
