    Incorrect.

    You want the "Tethering" toggle. Not to be confused with the "Tether" toggle (there are two)

    unless it's been updated within the last 2 weeks, it doesn't seem to toggle the WiFi part of the native tethering. USB works without a hitch though, and I haven't tried out the bluetooth.

    Note that I'm also using TetherMe to activate tethering on my iPhone 4

    When I rejailbroke with 4.3.2, I installed MyWi before I installed SBSettings and there's a toggle for MyWi in SBSetings that wasn't there before

    I think you missed the point of the post you quoted. Even if wifi is on, the "Tethering" toggle does not initiate hotspot via wifi. I have found that you have to go to the settings app and actually go to the hotspot settings to get wifi connection to work. It's a small quirk that I hope they can work out.

    As mentioned, the USB hotspot works fine with the toggle. Bluetooth works as well.

    Thanks for the input everyone, I appreciate it.

    Yeah, looks like there are a couple half-bake options, but would be really nice to have a toggle for the native Wifi Hotspot tethering. Since I'm not on AT&T, it's a better option as it doesn't cost anything, and works flawlessly integrated with the OS. I just wish someone would write a toggle so I could just click it on and off without going into settings.

    Many thanks!

    anything yet ?

    I really miss MiWi.. my GF doesn't have a data plan, and it's a pain to turn my Personal hotspot on an off all the time.

    I turn it on when we go out so she has internet.. but when we're at home, I want her to connect to the home WIFI not my phone.

    maybe I need a preferred network option on her iphone.. hum..

    I Agree. Sucks to have to go to settings. Activator helps but I want a SB settings toggle.
