    Hello,

    I just got the 9.3.3 jailbreak and I am shaking in my boots after finding that Ol' Reliable PDANet seems to be out of commission. The app works, but the client device cannot access the internet (Wi-Fi Hotspot) mode. I am not sure if you have to pay to "Register" for it to actually work, so I am holding off paying.

    Can anyone else try/confirm?

    Thanks.

    I don't believe it works unless you pay and register. I'm reading mixed reviews on compatibility..... personally I use tetherme. Users are posting that it will work via USB but not over Wi-Fi ( pda )

    Tetherme works fine

    I tried MyWi and the computer could not find the MyWi SSID. Down to TetherMe, but can't buy it since Cydia does not allow purchases on 9.3.3 yet.

    How long before in previous new JBs were purchases enabled in Cydia? Not complaining and appreciate it is for our benefit, just curious. Thanks

    I don't remember this happening before. If it did, it was fixed before I used the jailbreak.

    It's happened a time or two when the JB devs drop something saurik wasn't ready for. I've read he's on board with this one so I'm curious also. Won't be much longer. Everyone wants to get paid lol

    Can you confirm if any of the tethering tweaks work?

    Thanks.

    It usually takes about a week.

    This happened during the 9.0.2 jailbreak too. The reason is to prevent people from buying a tweak and installing it on firmware it's not updated for

    When it doesn't work who gets the refund headache? :) Hint: It's NOT you! :D

    Saurik is protecting himself. And rightly so. Too many years of jailbreaks where stuff was allowed to be installed when it hadn't been updated and caused problems.

    Not personally. Both tetherme and MyWi claim they work, and tetherme is on the compatibility list as a yes. I'm staying on 9.0.2 forever.

    Oh I totally agree it needs to be done and am grateful, just curious :)

    Tetherme works for me. I have an unlimited Cricket plan and the personal hotspot toggle doesn't even show up for me normally. After installing tetherme it was there and it works great. I haven't tried mywi but the app told me there was no internet connection even though there was.

    I just got TetherMe from an old device (the new 1.1.1-1) and it does not work either. I can turn on the hotspot, but the client device cannot access the internet. The same thing happened with PDANet.

    Any ideas?


    I'm going to make a new thread about this since it seems like it's turned into a different issue.
