    I recommend AGAINST the musclenerd hack

    I tried it, and it turns out it does not allow tethering a PowerPc Mac at all.

    I recommend PDANet, simple, fast, free. Works on jailbroken but Locked phones too.

    Have you fed this back to Dev Team?

    I've tested on Mac OSX 10.6.1, Vista and XP...

    Also, how can you confirm that the problem is with the binary patch and not the powerpc?

    > can you confirm that the problem is with the binary patch and not the powerpc

    no problem with the patch,

    tethering is an Apple feature that was implemented on Intel Mac only, not a PowerPC compatible feature..

    Using the musclehackcommcenter, I cannot tether my powerPC mac on System 10.4.11. I can tether my intel mac on System 10.5.8..

    otoh, PDANet works on both powerPC and intel Macs

    tangent.. Pwnage Tool does work on both macs, its just suuuper slowww to build the ipsw on the powerPC, about 30 minutes, vs less than 10minutes on intelMac.. also blackra1n does not work on powerPC mac

    on the apple site about tethering
    Apple - iPhone - Share your Internet connection with your laptop.
    it also says:
    "To use iPhone as a modem with a Mac computer, it must be running Mac OS X version 10.5.7 or later."

    intel mac is required for apple style tethering.. regardless whether you use the musclehackcommcenter or not

    Apple tethering code works by making the iPhone to "expose" a simulated ethernet adapter thru the USB port. For the host (Mac/Windows), the iPhone is treated as an external ethernet adapter, connected thru the USB port.

    The host (Mac / Windows) driver for this "ethernet device" is provided with iTunes. The reason for it not working with PowerPC Macs is that there are no drivers for that ethernet adapter for it.

    The CommCenter patch, by MuscleNerd et al., is very simple and clean: the only thing it does is to ignore the signature check for the APN settings in the carrier bundle, a "security feature" introduced in 3.1.
