I'm back to the iPhone scene. I badly need the wireless tether feature. Not going to pay AT&T what they want for that feature, especially when my old Nexus One (Android) phone was rooted and would wirelessly tether and performed great.

So, with all of that out of the way.....

1. What software is the most stable/best/easiest performing to Jailbreak my iPhone 4? Is there a link out there so I can go directly to the site to download the software?

2. Do I also need to purchase an additional app once Jailbroken so I can wirelessly tether?

3. Is the wireless tether feature stable? I need a stable and consistent wireless hotspot.

Thanks for any and all guidance.

Well, good luck with the all tethering thing. AT&T will start throttling you after you pass 3 gigs if you have unlimited.

I'd be very careful when tethering. AT&T caught me back in October, and they've downgraded me to the 4GB plan with tethering, which is $45/mo instead of the $30 for the unlimited plan.
