    Yes you can.

    Screw up your phone? Maybe.

    The phone will get quite warm (hot) using it for that purpose.

    Ok so then if I have a wireless adapter on my xbox then I could play xbox live using wireless tether from my phone? Tht would be awesome. And I really don't care about the phone getting hot. I will keep an eye on it

    I don't know man.

    I've used my phone on wireless tether with a laptop and I stop when it hits 110°F. That's after 15-20 mins.

    It doesn't level off if that's what you are asking.

    Well I go so far as to stand it up on end.

    You can set setcpu to declock the processor.

    I would root it and use tbh app to bypass the hot spot feature. Them it's not an adhoc network.
