The app FlashArmyKnife has hidden tethering capabilities.
The innocently titled FlashArmyKnife combines seven little utilities into one iPhone app: flashlight with adjustable brightness, built-in web browser with bookmarks, fully functional trigonometry calculator, satellite view map, currency converter, compass and battery indicator. As useful as these are, you’ll want FlashArmyKnife for its hidden tethering feature.
We’re not really sure how it managed to escape the attention of Apple’s eagle-eyed censors, but you can bet Apple’s gonna nuke the program out of orbit the instant they find out about tethering. So, if you’ve been looking to share your brand spanking new iPhone 5′s Internet connection with other devices without purchasing a tethering plan from your carrier, this app gets the job done without requiring a jailbreak.
To enable tethering:
- Open the app.
- Hit the calculator tab at the bottom.
- Punch in the following (without comas): 1642, M+, C, 1452, M+, C, 1943, M+
If you entered the combination correctly, the calculator display should read “run”, as shown below.
Tethering is now enabled (HTTP port: 6667, SOCKS port: 6668).
To stop tethering, tap the “C” button on the calculator.
This app's $2, and if you want to share your internet connection for free it's worth it.
Edit: Here's a tutorial on how to do it.
