Just a while ago iPhone 4 was finally jailbroken and offered another possibility to tether the iPhone 4, besides going through the official, legit and expensive way with AT&T. The solution for you to save $20/month just to tether your iPhone 4 is a jailbreak app called MyWi.
The cool thing about MyWi is that this is not just an app to tether your iPhone, it’s offering you a lot more by making it possible to use your iPhone as a wireless hotspot. This is amazing! Your iPhone doesn’t even have to be plugged in your computer. Unfortunately, there is one downside you should know about this app: it drains your battery like mad.
Next I will show you how to tether your iPhone 4 using MyWi step by step:
Step 1: Make sure your iPhone 4 is jailbroken
Step 2: Launch Cydia and search for “MyWi 4.0”.
Step 3: Download and install the free MyWi trial then reboot your iPhone.
Step 4: Launch MyWi and tweak the settings to your liking:
- Change the hotspot name
- Change the channel
- Enable Wep security
- Enable USB/Bluetooth tethering
Well, that’s it! Now you can tether your iPhone using MyWi. Apps like MyWi are not quite legal, but as long as you don’t get caught, you can enjoy it! The app is free for a 10-day trial, but if you want to keep it further it will cost you about $20. It’s pretty expensive, but anyway it’s one of the best jailbreak apps out there.
