      Restore and set up as new phone instead of restoring from backup. Or you will just have to wait for the jailbreak then you can use poof or sbsettings to unhide your apps. I tried the restrictions method up above on an restore a couple months back and had no luck.

      this is what you do:
      1. You need to download the carrier file settings from how-to-enable-3g-tethering-in-your-iphone-30-now and save it somewhere ( I chose desktop) DONT USE THE INSTRUCTIONS TO ENABLE TETHERING FROM THAT WEBSITE, JUST GET THE FILE AND MOVE TO INSTRUCTIONS 2
      2. then copy this: defaults write carrier-testing -bool TRUE
      3. then open terminal on a mac that you sync itunes with. then paste the copied info into terminal and hit enter.
      4. once you have done this make sure you hit sync to sync your iphone, u dont need to let it sync entirely, u can just hit the "x" in the itunes screen to stop it then hold options and click restore.
      5. It will then ask you to chose what file to restore. search and go to where you saved the att carrier file
      it is called (att_us.ipcc) it will NOT be grayed out if you run that terminal command. If by chance it is grayed out, run the command again, then go to options restore and it will then be available to click on.
      6. Chose the file and restore. It will then add it to your iphone as the instructions above show
      7. once done you can go into settings on iphone while its connected to your computer, then go to general, then network and you will see where you can turn tethering on. I was so excited. I also agree that it is pretty fast with 3g service + it is free since you're only using data from your iphone data plan.

      If you upgrade to 3.0 now you won't be able to use it, better to wait for the dev team to release the tools first.

      If you update your iPhone to iPhone OS 3.0 you will lose both your jailbreak and unlock.

      You will have to wait for Dev Team to release tools to jailbreak it which they had mentioned will be released very soon and will have to wait until Friday to unlock it.

      If the jailbreak didn't come out when they said, what makes you think that when Friday rolls around we won't be left in the same situation.

      One of our readers, GoogleMyName had provided the following solution to make the apps visible which seems to have worked for some users. You can try it:

      General> Restrictions and enable this. This will unhide all your
      apps. You can then go back and turn restrictions off. After you turn it
      back off, all of your hidden apps that were in categories will be back

      I had a jailbroken iPhone 3G and updated to OS 3.0 lastnight with no problems. All the Jailbreak apps are obviously now gone after the update. However, I am returning my phone to Apple for a warranty replacement.
      Can I confirm that there is no way for apple to know my phone was jailbroken and my warranty is valid?

      I had written an article last year on how to re-virginize the iPhone which should be helpful in your case:

      Am I the only one who is hugely dissapointed by 3.0? MMS and tethering does not work even though my carrier supports it... have to use hacks to enable it now.

      Voice memo's needs you to shout in the mic to be able to hear the recording later and the stupid battery percentage thing "only works on 3GS", what complete BS.

      I had a app on 2.2.1 that could show battery % left. What's up with voice control not working on 3G, vlingo works on 3G why can't apple support 3G. Think we need some serious hacker util to enable some of the much wanted 3.0 features for the normal 3G user.

      PS I got 3.0 from a direct link yesterday, works much better than trying to use itunes - it told me that 2.2.1 was the latest - even while I was busy downloading 3.0!
