Discuss type-mask (Number) -2 at the iPhone OS 3.x - Hackint0sh.org; Thank you dotsam for the new type-mask values. I enabled tethering on my carrier (Vivo ...
I would really appreciate if someone uploads the IPCC file for Bharti Airtel INDIA.
I am using an iPhone 2G and want Tethering.
Sorry, no tethering for the iPhone 2G, this is a 3G/3GS only feature.

thanks guys, with pointers from here i was able to get mms and tethering going on my 3g phone with ultrasn0w.
seriously though, someone should make a guide, it's not that hard if there was something for people to follow.
Exactly the problem I've been looking into for Orange UK
Can you create the .ipcc for the following please to enable both MMS and tethering
Gateway IP (proxy) address: 192.168.224.10:8080
any news about the type-mask values in 3.0 ipcc files?
So the type mask negative values are "two's complement" in binary... makes sense, and also why they are susceptible to breaking if further bits in the mask field are used. So in binary (if it allows =+ve/-ve) we should have a mask capacity of
...7 : 6 : 5 : 4 : 3 : 2 : 1 : 0
+- : 64 : 32 : 16 : 8 : 4 : 2 : 1
at the moment mask bit 3 is maybe unused, 4 & 5 are associated with tethering, and 6 & 7 are unused.
DOtsam are you getting any further indication of how the new type mask values are panning out, or do we wait and see for OS3:1 to see if some of these "unused" bits start to have a role to play... curious

Something I experienced while playing around with my simcards, maybe it's redundant but maybe someone finds it helpful:
Carrier settings are stored in 2 different files ,
/System/Library/Carrier Bundles/<your carrier>.bundle/carrier.plist
The second one should contain apn informations, the first all other carrier related settings.
I followed the type-mask settings description of dotsam in this thread, the results were always as described.
Editing these files directly (best way is writing a script) can be helpful if you swap simcards frequently, you dont need wifi/itunes/internet access to get all your cellular network features working.
But of course you need the jailbreak.
You always should restart your phone AND reset your cell network settings after you change something to be sure your changes are committed.

Overlapping type-masks in multiple APNs?
Dotsam and anyone else....
Any ideas why carriers would do this? (from apple Optus.au file). Note how the first and last apn's are the same except for the typemask for data. One would think that the first apn (17) already has the bits covered, so why make an apparent second entry that's identical (except for a type mask of 16)?
(remove dict, password, username entries for clarity)
The other entry I have seen appearing in some of the 4.1 ipcc files is this, (where it is the third entry - maybe the ipcc app the carriers are using that we mortals dont get to see automatically makes 3 entries, and the third is the template.) here's a copy FYI
Agree with the above question/comment. Sounds very interesting. Also, what does "Tether Auth" bitmask mean?

Does anyone understand how the different bitmasks correlate to whether a username/password is used in the APN settings?
