    quickest easiest way for wireless tether?

    so i have a friend who wants the wireless tethering on her droid. thats it. she doesnt care about the device being OC'd, themed, just wants the wifi tether.

    so what would be the quickest and most painless way to do this for her?

    obviously im going to root her phone first. then im thinking just install one of the customer boot kernels and install the wifi tethering afterwards?

    Install root update.zip, then use one of Chevys kernels with built in WiFi which will enable Wifi tether and obviously install the Wireless Tether apk.

    Follow this guide to obtain root:
    Obtaining Root | Root Your Droid

    then I would install SPRecovery to be safe..
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...tml#post290124

    Not necessary but HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended.

    but after that I would install ChevyOC kernel with WiFi built in:
    4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download ChevyNo1-1.0Ghz-OC-5slot-update.zip (Note: you DO NOT need to actually run the kernel higher than stock. Download SetCPU from Market and keep the settings low)

    Install the Wireless tether APK:
    http://android-wifi-tether.googlecod...r_2_0-pre7.apk

    Save that to /sdcard and use a file manager like AndExplorer (available in Market) to install it. (Make sure you have install unknown or unsigned apks checked in phone settings)


    OR -- And this is what I would do -- follow the steps on this guide that apply to you.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...ation-etc.html

    It's very comprehensive.


    It's a little late and im a little delirious, but I strongly advise you to go with the last link and only apply the steps you need.

    Best of luck.

    You could do all that, OR

    You could just DL the DMUpdater app and flash the ROM with it? I mean honestly, without SetCPU she will never have to worry about overclocking, and tethering will be included in the ROM....

    I'm confused. Are you still looking for a solution?

    The solution is DM updater, according to what she wants/needs/has.

    It is either that, or going thru a rather involved process of rooting, adding su, adding busy box, adding sprecovery, flashing a custom kernel, installing tiwlan_drv.ko, install wifi apk, etc ....

    Or she can just use pdanet right now, with no mods whatsoever. Only problem is it is usb, not wifi.
