How-to Turn your iPhone into a WiFi HotSpot

Jailbreaking allows you to install numerous apps that dramatically increases possibilities of using your iPhone. As i have already mentioned while writing about the Benefits of Jailbreaking , Cydia has tons of apps to fulfill your purpose , and one of my favorite is MyWi.

What is MyWi ?

MyWi is a jailbreak app that allows you to both tether your iPhone and create a WiFi Hotspot so you can share your Internet connection with other computers / WiFi enabled devices around you. The idea of having the iPhone as a WiFi hotspot is amazing . It saves you money on buying a real router.

MyWi will turn your iPhone into a hotspot so that you and your friend can access internet on their Ipod .Your iPhone can connect all WiFi devices within its reach simultaneously over WiFi 2.4 Ghz.
