MyWi Jailbreak App: iPad Connection To iPhone

MyWi, an app available for jailbroken iPhones, turns the iDevice into a wireless 3G modem that can be tethered to an iPad. This means you can skip paying the extra $130 on a 3G-only model, along with the $15 or $30 fee for data, and get internet access for free from your iPhone’s unlimited data plan!

The process of turning your iPhone into a wireless modem for the iPad looks quite simple. According to AppAdvice, which originally reported on MiWi, all you have to is launch the app and flip the “WiFi Tethering” option to “On.” Your iPhone will create a Wi-Fi network that you can choose with your iPad.

There is a drawback, of course: Jailbreaking comes with risks. Apple recently issued a support bulletin stating that hacking your iPhone can result in application instability, unreliable voice and data service and other issues. As well as the modem "mode" drains the iPhone battery pretty quickly.

The MyWi app can be downloaded through the Rock app store available for jailbroken iPhones. It costs $10, and includes a free 10-day trial. Here is more information on an iPhone Spirit Jailbreak Download.
