Customize Your Tethering Status Bar with Tetherize

By , May 26, 2011

Ever thought the glowy status bar that shows up when tethering your iPhone was kind of dull? Want to spice things up a bit? Then Tetherize may be for you, assuming you use the native tethering capability, and not a jailbreak app like MyWi or PDAnet.

Tetherize is a new jailbreak application that allows you to slightly customize the tethering status bar by adding text to it, or by stopping the glossy bar from glowing. That’s all there is to this app so far, although the dev promises “loads of new styles coming up”…

I guess the biggest downside to this app is that it only allows you to customize the native tethering app. If you’re using MyWi, you’re out of luck with Tetherize. Still, at the unbeatable price of free, Tetherize is a nice little addition to our growing collection of jailbreak tweaks.

Have you tried this application? If so, what’s your take on it? How would improve it?

    Who would jailbreak and not use mywi or pdanet?

      I would, and everything works just fine, so why would I pay for those tweaks?

      How about I sound like a jerk and ask “Who would jailbreak and PAY for MyWi or PDANet?” Doesn’t feel so good now, does it?

      Everyone uses their phone differently, so there’s no need to judge people just because they don’t do exactly what you do.

      Me, because my carrier allows (native) tethering without any limit :-)

    Can we have a topic on who since using the tethering mask on PDA net has still received Att letters or texts of death please??
