One of the many reasons we jailbreak our iOS devices is to add functionality that Apple or its partners don’t want us to have. Internet tethering is one of the most popular, but lately AT&T has started to crack down on such unauthorized usage -- and here’s how they know what you’re up to.
Most of us are already familiar with the traditional method of jailbreaking and unlocking our iPhones -- which usually breaks with each new iOS update from Apple. But now there appears to be a more permanent solution available -- for a price.
