    I was able to get my iPhone 3g to tether to my mac! Currently I only can use firefox, but that is still a huge plus.

    Warning... try at your own risk. Not my fault if you mess something up!

    First off you need a jailbroken iphone with 2.0 firmware.
    Use Cydia to download and install SOCKS Relay and OpenSSH

    Then you need to try and follow the following guide... thats what I did! good luck!


    I'll try to answer questions as best I can, but honestly I do not have that much experience :/

    -change your password once you are ssh'd into the phone, anyone on your network who knows the default 'alpine' password will have root access to your phone!

    ok it worked for me.. but it shows me the website of t-mobile first to chose my surfing speed. so i hope surfing with this socks is for free like on the iphone. have had trouble first when using tinyproxy with 1.1.3.

    Working fine here on a UK O2 phone 3G, using Firefox on XP.

    Downloads on the PC are showing over 1.5mbps of throughput (~160KB/s)

    Is it now safe to use passwd to change the SSH password or did you use another method?

    It took me a few hours to make all this work. Here's a few tips which I had to learn the hard way.

    1. The iPhone3G seems to be either WiFi or 3G and not both. So we want to use 3G as the front door and create a back door using WiFi on the iPhone for our laptop to go through. I finally got the 3G icon to stick on the iPhone by FIRST switching off WiFi and connecting via 3G to the Internet. Run Safari and make sure it works. Then, switch on WiFi and connect to the AdHoc network I set up on my laptop. Then set the TCP/IP to static, subnet, and I just use as DNS (Verizon's DNS, formerly owned by BBN, creator of the ArpaNet which became the Internet).

    2. Once connected, launch Terminal on your laptop, ping (your iPhone) and see if it responds. If so, ssh to it and run srelay to launch the SocksServer on the iPhone.

    If you Firefox is setup per the above post, you should be alive.
