    I am in desperate need to tether between my laptop and iPhone, but I don't have the cash flow for the extra $20 a month for the AT&T fees.

    A friend informed me I would be able to tether after jailbreaking my phone. I did a little research and redsn0w popped up. Now I know it's still in beta, so I was unsure if it's safe for me to JB. Is it? Not too many problems?

    Is tethering something that is normally unlocked after JB, or do I have to do something extra? Is it safe? If I were only to do regular browsing and email, would AT&T catch me?

    Sorry, I'm sure you get these questions all the time.

    Any help is very appreciated!

    There are a few ways to tether on a j/b iPhone. The question is not "is Redsn0w safe," (it's not in beta), the question is - what kind of iPhone do you have, and what firmware is it on - that determines whether or not you can perform a jailbreak.

    My specs were in the header, but I probably should have listed them again. I'm using an iPhone 3G running IOS 4.0. Was I wrong about redsn0w? I thought the release for the IOS 4 firmware was still in beta.

    I'm looking for the least $$ way to tether. I saw MyWi for $10, but I'm hoping there's a way to go about this without adding on to my iPhone bills.

    MyWi is a one time payment. I use it daily and it works great. You can tether via wifi or usb.

    And yes, with the 3G you should have a few j/b options. MyWi is a great app & worth the money, and as long as you are judicious in your data use, AT&T won't charge you extra.

    Thank you for the help, I have decided to try MyWi once I jailbreak.

    But I do have one more question! Redsn0w has asked me to locate my iOS 4 firmware software, and I can't find it anywhere. Is it because I updated my iPhone through iTunes? I'm not sure what I should do. . .

    Go to the sticky thread in the jailbreak forum and follow the instructions there on jailbreaking.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'm downloading the iOS 4 firmware .ipsw file as I type. I'll just stick it in my Library and hope redsn0w acknowledges it.

    It worked! Just placed the .ipsw file into "Iphone Software Updates" and pointed redsn0w in its direction. : )

    Thanks! I'm now jailbroken.
