    Surely the key to tethering is in the background process that actually does the tethering, misd (mobile internet sharing daemon). I guess it checks a couple of plist files, but ultimately it discovers that there's no 3G access and it puts back the default settings for the 2G phone. Quite possibly, misd needs to be modified in order to relay EDGE/GPRS signals.

    The executable file is /usr/libexec/misd. If anyone has experience in finding out how such a thing operates... (I know there are a few people on this forum who can do this).

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    I agree, I have not been able to figure out how to properly view and edit this file. I was able to tether my 2G 3.0 using iModem, I had to use the FWChanger from Cydia to make it think I was installing the daemon onto 2.0 and then I put the FW status back to 3.0.

    Tethering and push are the two features I miss in the jailbroken 3.0 running on the iPhone 2G. Is the tireless iPhoneDev team working on this?

    I have thrown a few tweets at them about this, but no responses. It is possible that that wanted to get ultrasn0w out before taking on an additional project, so now that ultrasn0w is out of the way perhaps we will get some help.

    Great, thanks.

    Default New to all this...

    Hey guys. I have been following this thread for the past two days hoping for a solution to this tethering problem on the 2G iPhone. Hope someone figures it out.
    I have searched to find the posting where it explains how to add the toggle to the 2G phone, but I can not seem to find it. Can someone please post a link. Thanks

    Thanks Jim. That worked though the tethering option comes up until I plug in the USB. Then it disappears again. Oh well. Hope you smarty pants can find a way!

    Most of it is in post #5 above; not that it matters, because it doesn't actually make tethering work.

    You edit the file /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.MobileInternetSharing.plist with a plist editor (see my signature) to change the value of the key State from 1020 to 1023.

    Also, in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist there is a section with the connection parameters of your EDGE/GPRS connection, at the apns key. In between the apn, password and username, you add another key:
    <key>type-mask</key>
    <integer>-2</integer>
    Or you can do this by installing a "provisioning profile" that takes care of the carrier settings: navigate Safari on your iphone to this menu and install the profile of your carrier.

    OK, I got the tethering option to show on the phone until I connect to the computer, then it appears that the usbaapl.sys driver resets the MobileInternetSharing.plist to 1020. It looks like this problem needs to be solved on two fronts, the phone and the computer.

    This may be one of the problems. I was reading the arstechnica review of the 3GS, and saw the snapshot of the Bluetooth Setup Assistant:

    In particular, see this:



    I don't see this option when I pair my iPhone 2G with my Mac. Do you? While this is for the iPhone 3GS, I'm assuming that this is the same for the 3G. Can anyone confirm?
