    Droid Bionic.. Rooted

    Free Wireless Hotspot (tether) ???

    Phone: HTC Incredible, Rooted (unrevoked3), Android 2.2, SkyRider 2.5, Hydra 1.15 Kernal, Baseband 2.x.

    I am trying to get the wireless tethering working. Droid 2.2 has it built in under Settings / Wireless connections. through there i am able to get my laptop and other devices connected, BUT it brings you to a Verizon page and wants you to sign up for the extra service.

    I have tried to download the Wireless 3G Hotspot for Rooted users from both the Market, and www.theunlockr.com but both i coudln't even get a device connected.

    I have seen that there is software you can install on both the laptop and phone that will work as a tether.. BUT is there a way to get the wireless tether working w/o software on the computer?

    looking for FREE wireless tether..

    wireless tether for root users doesnt work for you?

    Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    and the built in one in froyo will bring it to the vzw page because vzw now charges for that feature unlike before when they were still figuring out how to do it.

    Always reboot after install of wifi tether. It's a must.

    I would try the latest build out for your phone. If it doesn't work go back a build until it does.

    ok that worked.. thank you..

    i installed the latest version, restarted and it worked..

    not sure Y it didn't work in the past.. last time i downloaded it form the Market, and also theunlockr.com.. BUT i also didn't restart those times..

    so it could be the restarting or the diff version.. but either way,..

    thanks

    Would someone be kind enough to post "simple" step-by=step instructions on how to root the phone and then how to get around VZWs tether blocks? I see the "wireless_tether_2..." link that has been posted, but I have no idea what to do with that file once I download it. I'd really like to be able to enable my mobile hotspot and not get charged for 2 data packages considering I'm already paying for unlimited data. I still don't know how VZW can say they are 2 different items. It's like an internet company making you pay for the internet up to the modem (i.e. 1 computer) and then forcing you to pay to use that exact same connection on the other 2 or 3 computers in your home (i.e. home network via router/WIFI).

    Thanks in advance

    P.s. in case it's not obviously, I'm 100% new to rooting a phone.

    I should also point out that I'm fortunate enough (or not) to still be running 2.1...
