Activate Tethering Faster on Froyo
If you’ve just updated to the delights of Froyo and want to find a quicker way to activate the tethering option, look no further. Some members have noted that this can be achieved using AnyCut to create a shortcut to the tethering activity in the settings list menu. Alternatively, XDA forum members jmdsdf and pikipirs (of Wiimote Controller fame), have both separately coded simple shortcut applications to activate tethering.

To try out either of the applications, you can find jmdsdf’s TetherSettings and pikipirs’ Internet Sharing in the main forum request thread.

With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
