    Is a commcenter patch still necessary to tether with 3.1.3 on a jailbroken 3GS?

    I've tried without, but as soon as I install the correct carrier bundle from any different source, the section for tethering in settings dissapears. Frustrating as I have a big photog trip soon and I'd like to have net access while I'm out.

    Yes. You cannot use an unsigned .mobileconfig file on a 3GS without patching commcenter.

    Bugger, atleast I have my SHSH on file through cydia, really dont want to have to go through all that fuss to get tethering back. Hopefully a commcenter patch for the 3GS will be around soon enough, since the 3G one seemed to be put together rather quickly.

    I've had great luck with eagos' commcenter patch. And it is a real patch without the potential conflicts of some of the fixes in Cydia.

    But shouldnt that specifically 'not' work on 3.1.3 since thats a 3.1.2 commcenter patch?

    True. I had assumed since you have a jailbroken 3GS you were on 3.1.2, since I can't think of any reason to disregard the Dev Team's advice and upgrade to 3.1.3.

    Every third party app I have is crashing on 3.1.2 - if this poster was in the same state then I understand the update...
