S5 tethered to the iPhone 3G
I couldn’t wait for the S5 with inbuilt HSDPA 3G to arrive so I bought the earlier version which didn’t have this module.
Thankfully, tethering with a 3G enabled smartphone has always been an option to access the internet whilst on the go and seeing that whereever my S5 goes, my iPhone is sure to follow so tethering is a good compromise solution for me.
The task was relatively simple, thanks to having the ability to hack my iPhone and getting PdaNet onto it via Cydia.
After that, it was a simple process:
1) Set up a Adhoc Wireless Network on the S5. I called it “pdatether”
2) On the S5, connect your wifi to the configure “pdatether”
3) Jump onto the iPhone’s wifi and connect to the the configured “pdatether” network
4) Turn on the pdanet software on the iPhone 3G
5) And that it…job done!
Here’s a great link describing the process in full detail:
I’m running the trial version of pdanet that just expired a couple of minutes back. Now it only does http:// and not https://…you’ll have to buy the registered version for that.
