If you follow a rather rococo set of network config steps (detailed by 9to5Mac), make a recording, and rename it “PearSauce269.aac” (really? OK, sure, why not) then voila! Free tethering, regardless of your iPhone data plan (but that will still use up your data allocation).
Given that the discovery of this feature was coincidentally
and/or conveniently timed for a Friday evening, when the App Store minders have presumably fixie-biked off into the Cupertino sunset, there’s at least some chance the app will still be on the store in the morning — but needless to say this is not a good long-term plan for tethering.
