    These instructions are of OS X. You will need MobileTerminal on you iPhone

    Download this file and put CommCenter.patch on your Desktop:
    3G: http://iphwn.org/CommCenter_3gs_312.zip
    3G: http://iphwn.org/CommCenter_3g_312.zip

    Copy /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/CommCenter to your Desktop also.
    Open the Terminal on your Mac and enter these command:
    cd Desktop (hit enter)
    bspatch CommCenter CommCenter-hacked CommCenter.patch (Enter, a file should pop-up called "CommCenter-hacked")

    Now go ahead and delete CommCenter (the one thats on your desktop) now from your Desktop and rename CommCenter-hacked to just "CommCenter". (w/o the quotes)

    Rename CommCenter on your iPhone to CommCenter.backup in case something bad happens, so you have a backup.

    Copy the new CommCenter to your iPhone.

    on your iPhone use MobileTerminal and use these commands:
    su root (hit return)
    type "alpine" (w/o quotes) as the password, remember it wont show up...(hit return)
    type "cd" (w/o quotes) (hit return)
    then type chmod 755 /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/CommCenter (hit return)

    Click the image to open in full size.

    Restart your phone.

    Click the image to open in full size.

    Check your Setting > General > Network, and you should have the Tethering option.

    If you dont Go to http://help.benm.at on your phone

    I've tried it twice now (3GS running 3.1) and after I restart the iPhone I get stuck on the Apple logo.

    Luckily I can still SSH into the iPhone and change the backup back to the original and get the phone to boot.

    I am assuming this is because I am running 3.1 and I guess it is time to update to 3.1.2.

    it's only for 3.1.2, trying it on 3.1 will fail.

    Updated to 3.1.2 and did this again.

    Can get into the tethering screen but doesn't get too far; kicks me out of that menu and from there the tethering option is no longer an option.

    I am on T-Mobile but didn't think that mattered; maybe it does. Anyone else using this with T-Mobile?

    I had the same problem. The problem is the patched CommCenter file is set to 0644 permissions. You need to set the permissions of the file to 0755 before restarting.

    I changed the file permission to 755 before restarting the iPhone; just double checked it to make sure and they are correct.
