    As far as I know you must jailbreak to use mywy. There's no jailbreak out for iPad 2 yet.

    You are incorrect. There is a jailbreak for iPad 5.0.1 available. Regarding mywi, or any other tethering tweaks that i know of at the moment, the problem is, that ios 5 included new Blutooth drivers of some sort, which the developers have not yet had succes to exploit. Intelliborn are working on an update which, hopefully, will hit cydia soon. I hope you found my answer sufficient.

    i did. thanks a million. i figured mywi just wasnt updated or something was wrong. sure do appreciate it and its so nice having a jailbreak ipad 2 rather than stock. WAY better, just would be nice to have a hotspot feature. i still like android for sorts but apple is deff growing on me.

    I just upgraded the iPad 2 to 5.0.1 and re-jailbroke yesterday, and did the same for the iPhone 4 today. MiWi WiFi tethering works just fine (like before) but Bluetooth - and MiWi Bluetooth OnDemand - do not yet. The only advantage of the OnDemand bluetooth connection would be for battery conservation if one had to tether somewhere away from power or auxillary batteries.

    So you can turn your ipad, into a hot spot and say your laptop can connect to the net threw your ipad? I can't seem to get it to work on mine

    OOps, sorry I didn't find this sooner.

    Yes, MyWi works just like it did before, with the exception of the Bluetooth component. I have had MyWi for quite some months now and would be glad to try to help you work through the issue. It does seems to be tricky, and the connection proceedure doesn't go along the same every time. Occassionally I have to reboot one or the other (or both) of the devices. Also I have a shortcut created to a DOS process that releases/renews the IP addressing issued to the Laptop by MyWi. I'm never sure if using it helps, or if it's just me waiting a little longer - which does seem to be part of the proceedure sometimes.

    Let me know some more about what you have going and what you have tried so far.

    Can you please tell me where you have found this specific information from Intelliborn, so I may keep an eye on any possible progress. Thanks!
