How to fix some mysterious problems.

So im on 6.1.2 and iphone 5 and im not able to use Tetherme me or the mywi trial at all! i can install either of them and activate the hotspot but on tetherme its not showing up on bluetooth/wifi/usb, even though it shows its active. on mywi trial i can activate a connection and connect it but when i try to use my connection it says 0 up 0 down and wont load anything....

i have uninstalled all tweaks and cydia apps except for tetherme with no change. i have used 12 semirestore on iLex R.A.T. and i have reinstalled/rebooted everything numerous times.

The only thing i can think of is that i use iCleaner Pro to clean up unused files and dep. but wouldnt reinstalling tetherme put that all back?

What can i do here? im losing my mind thinking about it lol.

I have the same problem and I think SemiRestore was actually the issue that started it all. I have an iPhone5 6.1.2 and TetherMe was working perfect for months. However, my phone battery began to drain very quickly so I used SemiRestore and ever since my TetherMe hotspots do not work. I can enable the hotspot and it says it is discoverable but not a single WiFi device can see the hotspot(I've tried a computer, laptop, iPad and other iPhones). I have tried using SemiRestore 4 times and iLEX RAT 3 times and I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling TetherMe several times but it just will not work.

Does anyone have any ideas? This is driving me crazy!!!

It's not. TetherMe works fine on iPhone 5 with 6.1.2

i tried PDANet as well and same effect, i cannot get any data to the target device. I am not a thief and i OWN a valid copy of tetherme and tried the trial of mywi and pdanet. and nothing is working....

Go on IRC and contact @coolstar. You've used iLex RAT and no-one really know's what it's done because it's so buggy. I'm not sure but @coolstar 's semi-restore may help you. So tell him what happened.

Ok, so i talked to @coolstar who gave me the privilege of using his application pre-release, however i installed tetherme before ANYTHING else, and still a no go. It IS worth mentioning that my wife has an iPhone 5 6.1 and it works great, My iPhone 5 6.1.2 is not working... So maybe its something tetherme should look into! Thanks EVERYONE for helping me and a very special THANKS to @coolstar for letting me try out semirestore! Its truly and amazing app!!!

PDANet sucks. It doesn't even utilize LTE, it's like browsing from a 56k modem.
