Hacker Enables Tethering in iPhone OS 3.0

Steve Troughton-Smith of Ireland, whilst he “was hacking around with APNs in the Carrier.bundle itcc file” managed to work out how to tether his iPhone 3G over USB.

Apple did confirm that Tethering was in OS 3.0 but that it was dependent on carriers choice to weather or not it would be enabled.

For people who are unaware of what tethering is, it’s using the iPhone’s EDGE or 3G connection and using it on a computer which the phone is either attached over USB or Bluetooth, sharing the connection so that if you have no WiFi and you don’t have a 3G card you could just plug in your iPhone and browse away.
