Absinthe for 5.1.1 and MyWi 5.50.11
Anybody have this combination work for them? It's not working for me... my iPad connects to the iPhone, but no data will go from the iPad to the internet via the iPhone.
Edit: noticed this was post #2000 here... how 'bout that.

Same problem here on a Verizon iPhone 4 after Absinthe jailbreak on 5.1.1 . Worked ok on 5.0.1. I tried resetting MyWi to defaults, remove-reinstall, but no luck. The client gets an IP from MyWi, and I can ping the MyWi gateway IP of 192.168.20.1, but no traffic flows to/from the 3G connection. The up/down indicator shows 0 bytes transferred.
I tried it from an iPad client and a Win7 laptop, same results on both. Same result on USB tethering as well.
I emailed Intelliborn, so we'll see if a solution comes soon.

My first jailbreak and MyWi was my first Cydia install. It did not work for my Verizon iPhone 4S. I spent an hour trying all the troubleshooting tips provided by the MyWi folks before giving up.
I downloaded PDAnet and it automatically uninstalled MyWi. Started it up and it worked immediately. No muss, no fuss. And it was fast! I'm a happy camper.

FWIW, it says that an unregistered/free version of PDAnet will block any "secure" sites. It can be registered (I haven't checked the price) at PdaNet for iPhone Purchase Agreement. So maybe it WAS working for you, but you were trying to get to a "secure" site (whatever that means)?

It seems that PDAnet's connection cannot be shared with iPhones.
i.e. I'm using PDAnet on my iPad. My laptop can connect to its signal, but my iPhone cannot.
I guess it's a useful solution until MyWi gets fixed. I sure hope so, anyway, because I did pay for MyWi. And, as I recall, it was not cheap.

I'm really disappointed to hear that mywi isn't working on 5.1.1. I was going to buy it today, as I really wanted to use my iPad on 3G. Hopefully the dev gets it sorted quickly. For a $20 app I'd hope they would.

Same here :-(
Same issue here after Absinthe jailbreak on 5.1.1 on AT&T iPhone 4S. MyWi worked fine on 5.0.1.
Tried remove-reinstall, changed channel, removed security so it's just open, changed SSID name but no luck.
The client gets an IP but no traffic flows to/from the 3G connection -- up/down indicator also shows 0 bytes transferred.
I tried it from my "new iPad" client, a Windows 8 laptop, and an iPod and get the same results. Same result on both USB and Bluetooth tethering as well.
Also, once I jailbroke my new iPad, I installed and tried the "on demand" feature and as expected, same results -- it connects but I don't get any data.
Let's hope it gets updated!
