Wired Tether For Samsung Epic (EB13 Froyo)

If you’re a Samsung Epic owner running EB13 (Froyo) on your Android device, you might have been one of the many folks experiencing issues with the built-in tethering.

For more information including full instructions, troubleshooting and technical details, head on over to the modification thread.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?
