Wi-Fi Tether Now Working on Eclair

If you have been drooling over the various FroYo delights such as Wi-Fi tethering that other XDA members have been enjoying since the Android 2.2 release, you’ll be pleased to find out that Wi-Fi tethering is now working for Eclair!

XDA forum member NordicZz, has posted that the clever devs working on the open source android-wifi-tether project have got the hack working on the HTC Desire and EVO 4G.

Root Eclair users should:

  • Mount your SDCard
  • Create a directory named ‘android.tether.
  • Uninstall old versions of wireless_tether.
  • Install the latest wireless_tether_2.0.2-pre release apk.

Root is required for this hack and the below disclaimer applies.

Warning:  Use this application at your own risk. It is possible that use of this program may violate your carrier’s Terms of Service.

For more information and the link to the open source project, take a look at the forum thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
