Flash Army Knife Pulled from the App Store; 2 More Tethering Apps Surface

FlashArmyKnife Tethering iPhone

We reported a few days ago on a seemingly innocent utility app that had a hidden ability to tether. It was only a matter of time, but it appears that it has finally been caught by Apple and removed from the App store.

Well, you aren’t out of luck yet, because member iTether of the MacRumors forums posted about two more apps that also have hidden tethering abilities and haven’t been caught by apple (yet). The user posted about them last March, and yet neither have been pulled up to this point. Hit the break to read about them!

2012-12-29 13_38_12-BSOD Reaction Time for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App StoreBSOD Reaction Time is a seemingly simple app that tests your ability to quickly type “Ctrl+Alt+Delete” when your PC shows the “blue screen of death.” What the app doesn’t tell you is that it comes packed with the same tethering ability as Flash Army Knife.

Instructions for BSOD Reaction Time:

1. Press the information button
2. Click on the text “Unexpected” in the lower right hand corner of the screen
3. Go back to the game
4. Press ctrl, alt, and then the upper left-hand corner of the screen to access the tethering screen
5. Next, go to your computer and set up an ad-hoc network
6. Connect your iPhone to that network and set a static IP Address of 13.37.13.37 with the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
7. Now go back to the application and turn on tethering
8. On your computer, go to network settings and change the proxy settings
9. Put the SOCKS Proxy server as 13.37.13.37 and the port as 1080

2012-12-29 13_44_56-_Rock Paper Scissors_ for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App StoreAlso evading Apple’s App Store regulations and including built-in tethering is another simple game — *Rock Paper Scissors*. The game may seem to be the classic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, but read on to find out how to enable tethering.

Instructions for *Rock Paper Scissors*:

1. Press scissors, rock, paper, and then the upper left-hand corner of the screen to access the tethering screen
2. Next, go to your computer and set up an ad-hoc network
3. Connect your iPhone to that network and set a static IP Address of 13.37.13.37 with the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
4. Now go back to the application and turn on tethering
5. On your computer, go to network settings and change the proxy settings
6. Put the SOCKS Proxy server as 13.37.13.37 and the port as 1080

If you need a tethering app, now is a good time to grab one as both of the above apps are still available! BSOD Reaction Time is $2.99, and *Rock Paper Scissors* will set you back $2.99 as well. It’s only a matter of time before these apps are pulled — the clock’s ticking!
