    I am new on here and have searched for this topic but have not found what I was looking for... Probably just tired of looking at a computer screen... lol

    Anyways I have a rooted X2, and was looking for a good tethering app to use.. I have read all the legal and illegal controversy topics and know all about it... so PLEASE don't comment if your just going to say it's illegal and shouldn't do it...we are all guilty of something that is illegal whether it's speeding, texting and driving, drinking and driving, nobody is 100% innocent anymore...

    My question is does anyone know of a good tethering app for rooted Droid x2's? I tried android-wifi-tether but it didn't work when I installed it, said something about not having the right kernals... if you know how to get this one to work I would appreciate it, or if you know one that works already for a rooted x2, that would be even better. Thanks

    Tethering Isn't As Illegal As People Make It Out To Be. Go Into The Market And EasyTether And PDANet Are Free And They Don't Need A Verizon Tether Plan.

    I don't think that's what he meant. He meant tethering by circumventing verizons additional hotpot plan.

    I Bet You're Right. I Was Stating My Opinion For Others That There Are Still Free Apps.

    I know about tethering with easy tether, i used to use it with my droid 1. I just wanted to use the wireless to run 2 computers at once... i know you can use hotspot, but don't want to pay for the usage if I go over. It's not something I plan on doing a lot of, just be nice to have that option. Thanks for the help and info!

    Not that it really makes a difference, but does anyone know if USB Tethering works on the X2? I can get the Wireless Tether app to work, but when I run the USB one with it hooked into my PC the PC doesn't detect anything when it's enabled.

    USB tethering functionality has been stripped from the kernel. It will not work.

    Edit: Yes, pdanet and easytether will work fine.

    Depends on the app. PDANET works for me.

    So after having a chance to try the WiFi Tether out, how is it performing? Have you had any issuses? Random Reboots? Access Protection or Security Problems? Heat Issues? A follow up would be appreciated. Thanks

    Opengarden tether works very well and you can tether to your other mobile devices with it wifi enabled phones/ipods/ipads/tablets/etc.
