    Hi guys, after a long battle I managed to upgrade my unlocked/jailbreaked iphone 3G to iOS 4.1 (without changing the baseband - i used Pwnage Tool 4.1.2 and ultrasn0w). I have now reception with my German carrier and everything is great, BUT whenever I try to tether with that iPhone (either USB or Bluetooth) the screen flashes and then only shows the pineapple. What do I have to do to make it work again? (After the initial jailbreak/unlock 2 years ago with quickpwn the tethering worked just fine).

    Thanks!!!

    I could be wrong but did you answer your own question? It must be baseband related ...

    no change in baseband, yet before tethering worked...

    .... now all i get is the short flash and then the pineapple. I used a custom made ipsw to not change the baseband with the 4.1 update, so why would the tethering work before the update and not now? Am i missing something?
    And what does the flash+pineapple mean?

    Some of the Tethering tricks that worked in version 3 of the software does not work in version 4. You have to get MIWI or Tetherme from Cydia to solve your problem. It is not a baseband issue.

    but i still have the slider for tethering, and can enable it, just the phone goes in pineapple mode as soon as connected to the mac.
    does this info make a difference?

    installed tetherme - still pineapple mode!

    now I installed tetherme - at least i think i did, since I had the tethering-slider before that in settings already, i cannot really tell (how do I check?).
    However, when I try to connect the iphone to the mac to tether, same old same old (=pineapple mode).
    HELP!
