maknz: It eats battery but I'm able to charge it whenever I need to really.



Lol yeah its not the end of the world as some would make out..


Just wondering if you jail break, can you run IM clients properly?

I run IM+ with push perfectly, so yeah, the Jailbreak doesn't hinder anything.

Push Mail with Google Sync works perfectly too.

Guys this is thread is about 3.1 breaking tethering. Take your argument about the phone (not) being a great smartphone elsewhere.

Hi Mak (or anyone else who'd like to chip in),
I'm just curious about which particular app/function is required on a JB'd iPhone to enable tethering on 3.1 hooked to the XT network? At the mo I'm JB with Vf but may need to run XT for tethering at some stage - thanks.




Cheers,
Mike

clicknz, I haven't done anything special apart from using custom firmware made by PwnageTool 3.1.3 (http://blog.iphone-dev.org). This is firmware 3.1.

The only thing that may have helped was performing the instructions in this tutorial for a different issue, this *PERHAPS* being a side affect. As far as I knew, the carrier had to be signed... Worth a shot!

MikeyPI: Then dont get a Pre...

Blackberry batteries are just fine for over 36hrs of heavy use and multitasking... Never had a issue yet...

I do have an issue with not being able to use IM clients properly, or do two things at once....



Checking email is not heavy use, nor is texting AND checking email multitasking; or did you guys get twitter and got carried away? Crackberry a smartphone, you ARE funny...

There's an easier way that avoids your permissions issue:

install ssh,nano (optionally mobile Terminal)  from Cydia, Fire up Terminal on your iPhone or SSH into your phone.
10.1.1.3 is my phone's IP, use your own - obviously.

type:

ssh root@10.1.1.3
root@10.1.1.3's password: *******


if you are using mobile terminal skip above steps.

cd "/private/var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/"
cd Telecom_nz.bundle/
nano carrier.plist




in nano change:

 


<key>CarrierName</key>
<string>Telecom NZ</string>


to


<key>CarrierName</key>
<string></string>


       

press cntr-o, cntr-x to save your settings

reboot

Done, and no crashes as permissions/ownership remains un-affected.

Do you actually have tethering working, or do you just get the option in prefs? The reason I ask is that I do have the option enabled, as do most users, but the iPhone won't actually go into tether mode unless you use a Vodafone sim.

Hi

Sorry, I guess I spoke to soon! Indeed the option to turn it off/on is there but an attempt to make the computer interface with it failed. So It's sorta half and half.

There is a separate application available for tethering which is seperate from the OS. But that's another story!

Hmm, interesting nonsense. I barely txt, but i would consider, 50+ emails, 2hrs Google Maps, 100MB data exchange, 45min video & 20+ voice note recording, editing Word & Excel docs,  and continual BBM & GT use per day, as heavy usage.


Maybe you only consider fart, and beer pouring apps as actual usage, and the fart app while listening to music as multitasking....

Thank you pebbles.

MikeyPl that's twice now. Start that crap in a new thread if you want to debate that. The issue of 3.1 disabling tethering is obviously still an ongoing and current issue, so this thread needs to remain on topic.

I actually want to read about this issue, not some drivel about whose smart phone is better than whose, so damn straight I'll be backseat moderating!! :)
