iPhone 3.1 Firmware Update Tethering Hack does not work

According to an article over on Cnet, the release of iPhone 3.1 firmware is blocking a tethering hack. Apparently once you have updated to iPhone 3.1 and you navigate to Settings app — General — Network, you will find that tethering is now gone from the menu.

Apparently the loss of the tethering hack isn’t affecting everyone as varying versions of the AT&T carrier file looks to be the reason for this.

iPhone developers so far haven’t been able to come up with a way to downgrade or even re-enable tethering, so for the moment it looks like if you have lost tethering its gone until a new hack can be found.

    Why are you talking about a hack?

    In Europe most of the operators support tethering and it became officially available with iPhone 3.0 release.

    Now Apple seems to have removed the internet tethering for all customers.

    Absolutely unacceptable.

    I agree dagge
    i believe that apple did that because some countries, like united states (at&t) want to charge an outrageous fee for tethering. For the price I’m paying for my iPhone, tethering should come with my plan.

  3. i have officially broken that tethering lock. my iphone currently runs firmware 3.1, baseband 6.04, and modem firmware 05.11.07. and i also have mms capabilities alongside tethering.

    it required me no jailbreak or hack.
