Tethering and iPhone 3.1: Hopefully soon
While not dependent on the iPhone's recent ability to tether, I do like having it as an option when all else fails. Unfortunately updating to the latest firmware the hack I use was broken. Not to be dismayed as the developer, Ben, has a fix on the way that will re-enable the now defunct tethering. For those of you who do not know how this works, many different hacks came out shortly after AT&T announced that tethering would not be out (although third world countries would be able to do this....) and as all good hackers do, they found a way to enable this feature to work anyways. Simply point your iPhone's Safari browser to http://help.benm.at and follow the instructions to enable both tethering and MMS functionality. Ben and his team posted there should be a fix on the way and also to note that AT&T will be enabling MMS September 25th.
