Im new to the forum and I figured what way to make my mark besides telling you guys about an APP i discovered for tethering called proxoid.
It seems to look pretty promising especially considering the claim that it makes where you can actually tether your phone without having to root it.
It claims to use the USB debugging mode on the phone along with the phones drivers. I know that was "very" insightful, but just like you right now im pretty brand new to this app. I figured id just spread the word. I will be attempting to use my phone to make a successful connection to the internet later tonight and will respond later with my findings and a writeup.
