Just jailbreak and download PDAnet. If you're trying to get around the official tethering function you might as well do it the right way.

I'm already jailbroken and live in a country where I don't have to pay an extra free to tether but I saw this and I'm sure there are people out there that don't want to jailbreak and live in the US where you do need to pay a fee to use tethering so I thought I'd share with you guys.

I appreciate the effort but it's just too much work to get connected.
Make something as simple as iTether was and I'm a buyer.

In a year or so these will all be pointless. Once Verizon and AT&T "gently" move everyone to shared plans with "gratis" tethering it won't matter.

Seriously are there really people out there that would $1.99 then to have to mess around inputting all that crap for apple to push the red button on the app next week?

If they pull an app you still can keep it and just have it backed up. I still have VLC player and it works. Even if it's pulled, if you bought it, you can continue to use it. Nice option for non jailbreakers.

No I said pushing the button.

Apple has a kill switch!

Vlc was just pulled never killed.

Did they ever 'kill' the Flashlight 99-cent app that did the same thing or just pulled it out of curiosity?
