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 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.
