MyWi 4 for iOS 4 is now available in Cydia and Rock for download. MyWi for iPhone comes with many new features including faster performance, Adjusting the transmit power, lower battery consumption and much more.
For those who don’t know, MyWi 4 turns your iPhone and iPad 3G into a hotspot with the tap of a button to connect multiple laptops or mobile devices to share your iPhone’s internet connection. MyWi also let you implement WEP Security to prevent others from accessing your WiFi HotSpot, enable USB Tethering on your iPhone, Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID), and also Shows up and down bandwidth usage.
Here’s a complete list of new features in MyWi 4 for iOS 4.0.

- Battery consumption meter
- USB Bridge mode. (Connect your laptop over USB to the phones 3G or WiFi connection!)
Here are a couple of notes from the source:
A couple of the new features in particular will be incredibly useful. You know all those WiFi hotspots we get to use for free from our iPhone/iPad 3G but not from our laptops? Well now when you are at your favorite Fast Food eatery or area Airport you can bridge your laptop to your phone over USB cable and voila WiFi on your laptop. Or how about at a hotel that only let’s one MAC address on the in room WiFi? Signup from your phone instead of your laptop and then let all your devices have at it!
My other favorite is the battery consumption (lower than ever ) and the battery meter. Choose the status bar icon over the annoying blue bars and watch in real time your battery drain level. Lower the transmit power to conserve battery. Plug your phone in to power during those large downloads or extended use periods and see confirmation that your battery charge is on the rise.
