    What is the best app for tethering in GB 605?

    I have tried Barnacle but I can't seem to get the laptop and phone to connect. Gets stuck in "attempting to connect"

    Open Garden sends me to the VZ webpage.

    any ideas on how to connect?

    I had read that VZ may be able to monitor tethering with Gingerbread. Does this circumvent their ability to do this? Or is the only way to go back to Froyo?

    You take your chances with tethering. Best bet is not to do it, but if you must then know that VZW can do whatever they want to you if you're caught.

    What if I go back to Froyo? Is that safer?

    TBH it doesn't matter, VZW isn't really cracking down on occasional users. Seems like only large data users are getting throttled.

    Thing is, they're looking for streaming data connection that probably triggers an alert that somebody may be using a wireless tether when they pass a certain bandwidth or size of data.. They cannot really figure out what you are doing. To think, people have gotten charged for this sort of thing!

    So they can't determine what is being run just volume of data used that is good. I figured they had implanted a way to remotely view phone. Any backup programs or other appear that are essential?

    I've been using the wifi tether patch/hack with WiFi Tether and it works great with little problem.

    Alright I see the app, as posted by lefspin, but its not in the market. What is the best way to get it on the droid X? Will I need any special Kernals etc? I have also read people having issues. Is it just a matte of clearing cash so the VZ pay page doesn't show up?

    I have a DROID X and before I did an update...yes by accident I used the tether mode. Not much, mainly for my kids to watch youtube while we were driving around I have iPad 1. Now I have rooted phone on GB and the wiring tether u get from Google-code is not working. I tried barnacle also. I keep getting the vz connection page. anyone know a way around this? I am even willing to go back to froyo if I have to. Im about to go on a road trip driving from Texas to Chicago and I do not want to listen to ky kids the whole way. Lol.

    I know this is a dumb question, what does flash with this bootstrap mean exactly? i had the same problems with wifi tether, getting the VZW screen every time, even with the google wifi app. droid x is rooted, i have bootstrapper, rom manager.

    My goal is to get this damn tether to work, please help. I have 2.3.3, 4.5.605

    as long as you don't go over board you should be fine...
    or stream alot of music... like pandora and google music... so when you do tether... it doesn't stick out....
