There seems to be some more questions so I rewrote this walkthru more detailed

1. Ok if you have never done a hack on your phone the first thing you need to do is follow the directions here http://www.hacktheiphone.com/iphone_first_ten_steps_to_modding.html

2. Download http://dinkdoink.com/upload/tetherkit-osx.zip

3. Unzip that file to the desktop

4. Open terminal (applications then utilities)

5. Type the following
cd Desktop then enter
cd tetherkit-osx then enter
chmod u+x * then enter

This gives you permission to run these files in unix.

6. Move jailbreak out of the cd tetherkit-osx folder to another folder such as documents, you will see why later.

7. Change back to the phomedmg folder that you made in the step 1 walkthru.. you do this by typing cd and then dragging your phonedmg onto the terminal (it will automatically type the link for you)

8. Drag the jailbreak from your phonedmg out of this folder and onto your desktop.

9. Drag the jailbreak you put in the folder from step 6 into your phonedmg folder

10. Type ./jailbreak this will run the new modified jailbreak, follow the jailbreak instructions, holding the 2 buttons for 25 sec.

11. Type cd in terminal

12. Type cd Desktop/tetherkit-osx in terminal, this will put you back in the correct folder.

13. Type ./tetherify-osx-intel.sh into terminal and hit enter

14. Follow the on screen instructions (restart twice)

15. Use the Nervegas writeup to create a systemwide proxy in OS X

1. Go into your laptop's network preferences
2. Double-click the AirPort connection to bring up the proeprties
3. Click the TCP/IP Tab
4. Select "Manually" from "Configure IPv4"
Enter the IP address: 10.3.3.1, subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
5. Click the 'Proxies' tab.
Scroll down the list of proxy servers until you come to "SOCKS Proxy"
Check the checkbox, and in the "SOCKS Proxy Server" box to the right,
enter the IP address of the iPhone: 10.3.3.2, and a port number
of 1080.
6. Click 'Apply Now' for the changes to take effect

Hope this was more clear if you have any more questions Ill try to answer them the best I can.

so my first terminal experience was putting ringones on andit took me about ten tries to finally get it. This looks a lot more complex. How much harder was this?

This isnt any hard then adding ringtones or changing icons.

Take it step by step and you will be fine. After you add the script add back the plist file and you will be all set. Its really easy to do.

I had no intend the hack the iphone until I found out about tethering option. Even so, I'm still unable to do so.

I find your guide a little hard to follow though. Having had no background at all on what jailbreak, iphoneinterface, and all other tools are, I have little idea what you are referring to when you say "change the directory" or "add back plist file", etc.

I found a foolproof tutorial on this website. pretty good for a starter. http://www.hacktheiphone.com
I'm sure most of us will appreciate if you can describe at what point your procedure deviates from a normal hack like adding ringtones.

Thanks again for the post.
