Oh man this is sweet. You see, this week, I got my hands on the GM copy of the iPhone 3.0 OS. I installed it, went “OK, cool”, went to revert and nearly bricked my iPhone. Somehow, two days later, it unbricked itself and went back to OS 3.0, which is what’s needed to rock this tethering hack. Here’s how it works (in short):
- Have a Mac, iPhone with 3.0 OS installed and a pre-release version of iTunes 8.2
- Install the iPhoneTether app
- Hack some config files
- Reap the benefits
While I’m desperate to try this out, I don’t feel like fucking up my iPhone 3G again. The poor thing’s been through too much trauma. Hit the link for 9to5Mac’s full instructions.
