PDANet from JuneFabrics. Poor customer support service! [Fail]

OK, this is not a dating related article, but I figured I'd post it here to help any other wandering souls. I am sure many are doing the same fruitless searches I've been doing (related to PDANet not working on iOS5) for the past couple of days and not finding anything on the above topic. So here it goes...

Couple of days ago, redsn0w was released to allow for untethered jailbreak on iOS5. After many months of anticipation, I decided to finally upgrade my iPhone4 GSM from 4.3.2 to 5.0.1. The upgrade process was seamless and there were no snags. I then used redsn0w to jailbreak the device and things were running as smooth as anticipated.

Then I went ahead to install PdaNet from Cydia, which is a 3rd party app allowing you to tether to your PC, iPad or use it as a hotspot. I had previously purchased this application, which by the way is a wooping $15. The installation was a painful process. First the repo wasn't working, then there were URL issues, but finally, after two days of unsuccessful attempts, I finally got it installed.

I rebooted my phone and went ahead to activate the WiFi Hotspot. Unfortunately, it did not work. The option just kept returning to the off position and no matter how many times I tried to turn it on, it did not work.

I've searched for help on the internet and can't seem to find anything. I've sent emails to JuneFabrics and still nothing. For an app that is $15, one would think there is a better customer support. There is nothing in their forums, nothing in their help, and I am just left speechless.

If anyone has had the same issue, please comment below.
