How can I get internet for iPhone via its USB connection, because my iPhone's Wi-Fi is dead ?

If I use iBooter I can see next network hardware:
] radio readnvram
radio readnvram
Read 1536 bytes from nvram in 2467400 usec.
Radio NVRAM Entries:
 Type: 0x0004  Size: 0x0014  Purpose: Build Name - "J572755DDVKTA"
 Type: 0x0007  Size: 0x0004  Purpose: Not Avaliable
 Type: 0x0001  Size: 0x01f4  Purpose: WIFI Calibration Data (crc 1082363497)
 Type: 0x0002  Size: 0x0006  Purpose: WIFI Hardware Address (00:xx:xx:xx:xx:8f)

 Type: 0x0003  Size: 0x0006  Purpose: BT Hardware Address (00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx)
 Type: 0x0005  Size: 0x0006  Purpose: Ethernet Hardware Address (00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx)


So how you can see iPhone has Ethernet Hardware.

In this tutorial was described the way how to SSH to get your iphone online via USB cable.


How can I get it in Ubuntu ? If I connect iPhone to Ubuntu I can't get connect SSH connect to iPhone via USB.

May be It should be use something like ifconfig in iPhone ?

Any idea ?
