Tetherme and Gameboy4iphone

I have always raved about how great MyWi is because I hadn't ever seen
anything work so well. I tried out pdanet, but it's run as a dialup
connection and isn't anywhere near as fast as MyWi when tethering.
MyWi is great for the wifi capability. If you have an iTouch laying
around or laptop that needs Internet, MyWi is your man. But I don't
really need to worry about wifi. I have a desktop and I need a solid
USB tethering fix. So while I was looking around at other options, I
stumbled upon a package in Cydia called tetherme. Basically,
all it does is force-activates the iPhone's built-in tethering feature
without you having to add tethering to your plan and roll your
unlimited data down to 2GB. If you're on AT&T like me, that is.
Anyway, tetherme is a paid app offered by BigBoss repo so it should
already be listed in Cydia on your phone. However, if you'd like to
try it out first, you could add http://ihackstore.com/repo
(touch and hold the link then copy address) into your custom sources
in Cydia. It may give you a warning about illegal content (ie
cracked apps) but just click okay. And try tetherme for free. But if
you like it and intend to use it, I strongly recommend you
purchase the legitimate app from the Cydia store. Support these
programmers that unlock some amazing potential.
That was just
on my mind, the real app I'd like to blog about is a gaming app.

Gameboy4iPhone

Gameboy4iphone is, like you might've guessed, a gameboy color emulator
for the iPhone. It's from zodttd, a default source so you don't have
to add any sources to Cydia just search for gameboy4iphone. It's
totally free! The thing I love most about it is that it has the option
to use a wiimote instead of the touchscreen thereby turning your phone
into a portable console with a wireless remote. As you can see in the photo, go to Settings then flip the Wiimote Control switch to on. After you've activated the Wiimote Control option, exit the game back to the homescreen. Make sure to turn off bluetooth in settings, otherwise the app won't be able to start the bluetooth stactk which is what syncs up with the Wiimote. After you've got that settled, you can play whatever games you have! Getting roms is pretty easy, a google search will suffice or you can find tons of roms at Coolrom or Doperoms. You can either unzip these files on your computer and SSH them into your phone or just use iFile to unarchive. But that's a walkthrough for another day.

I love tetherme! It is absolutely amazing! I had been using mywi, but it was getting to the point where it was just worthless. It only worked like 25% of the time. Thanks for the info!
