    Bugs:

    -Wifi tethering doesn't work with WPA2.
    -WEP is not working either, MBP did not ask for password upon connect. It's essentially an open network at this point. WTF.

    I'm not sure what Intelliborn's tech support is like but you may want to try contacting them. Especially for the price tag.

    I feel so stupid...

    I bought the 4.99 update, but now I don't know what to install.

    I can't install MyWi 6 coz it says "Depends - MyWi 6 >=6.00.02" and I can't install MyWi 5.5 coz it says "Depends - iOS Firmware <6.0"... please help.

    (iPhone 5, iOS 6.1)

    I'm so pissed right now. I want a refund because I can't tether Wifi hotspot with the new update. My MBP is saying connection time out. WPA2 doesn't work. Stupid MyWi is turning on my wifi automatically even when I disable the auto option for it to tether from Wifi hotspots.

    This is the absolute worst POS software I've ever used on my phone and I had to pay for it.

    Don't be p^ssed

    Before you get your jockstrap all tied up in knots around your nuts...they updated it to fix the password problems. I'm using it right now using a password. It's version 6.0.0.2 or something. :D

    I had the same problem.
    Go back into Cydia, go to changes, hit refresh, wait for it to stop refreshing. Then try to instal MyWi 6 again. It worked for me, and I read that it was a known issue. Just refresh changes.

    Had never used nor even heard about this app until today. Installed the trial of it on my iPad mini WiFi to see if I could establish an ad-hoc connection to an Apple TV that way; after all, it's supposed to be able to relay a WiFi signal. Trying to set WEP password makes it crash, and the access point it says it creates can't be found by any device I've tried. I see the $20 price tag, these bugs, and the fact that they didn't even change the version number inside the app (version 6 says 5.5 inside the app), this smells like a "oh my god new jailbreak must make money NOW!!!!!111111" to me

    Hey genius. How long has the jb has been out? About a day and a half now right?
    Give him and the rest of the cydia devs a break and some time to fix and work out all the bugs.
    Most jb apps are the same way now obviously. Buggy and need more testing and updating.

    It was an error when the app was posted. Update to the latest version.

    Get tetherme instead, it enables the native hotspot from the phone and not a 3rd party app like MyWi.

    Not all iPhones have a "native hotspot" to enable, so TetherMe may be seen as useless by some.

    Here, I posted this to reddit to explain some of the differences:

    TetherMe;

    Positives:
    * Unlocks native tethering.
    * Has APN editing (which may help if you're using an unsupported network).

    Negatives:
    * If your device doesn't have WiFi tethering, TetherMe won't give it to you.
    * Native tethering has the annoying blue bar, unless you install other addons to change it.
    * No extra controls compared to native tethering.

    -----

    MyWi;

    Positives:
    * Able to reduce the WiFi transmit power, saving battery life.
    * Able to select tethering bar or status bar icon without installing additional tweaks.
    * Enables WiFi hotspot on devices that do not support WiFi hotspot natively (original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS).
    * Supports OnDemand auto-connection (may not be as robust as it was in iOS 4).
    * Able to use WPA2 security on devices that support it (iPhone 4 and newer).
    * Able to individually toggle USB, Bluetooth, or WiFi tethering.
    * Able to do "WiFi sharing" (in situations where you have WiFi access, but only one device can connect to it, your iOS device can share that connection).
    * Detailed status screen showing connected clients, Sent & Received data, and current power draw (in mA).
    * Ability to change WiFi channel used, AP mode (Infrastructure or Ad-hoc), and auto-shutoff time.

    Negatives:

    * Cost..?

    -----

    MyWi does more than just "enables tethering". It's a bit different than TetherMe. They both have their uses.

    Oh yeah, I'm posting this while tethered to MyWi under iOS 6.1. WPA2 WiFi hotspot works great. I happily paid the $5 to upgrade.

    I really like the UI for MyWi, but the price is too prohibitive. But I might have to make the jump because I am a huge security freak who doesn't like the useless WEP PDANet provides.

    tetherme uses the native WPA2 and cannot be changed to wpa/wep, at least on my still 5.1.1 iphone 4

    So,

    Mywi 6 does work properly with my iPad

    However- I do get a timeout with OSX 10.8.2. Hmm. Probably has a bug. Thoughts?

    I'm on 10.8.2. I sometimes get an error when I connect to my iPad but it does actually make the connection and I can get on the internet.

    Yea, I guess I should have clarified this-

    I use Mywi on my iPhone 5 for my iPad and my laptop.

    I emailed intelliborn if they respond.
