Evo 4G tethering

If your Evo 4G's been rooted already (using either the Unrevoked or XDA method), there's now another Wifi tethering method available at your disposal, and all you have to do is load up a little application (just be sure to grab the latest version). This one is outside the confines of Sprint's official $29-a-month option on the Evo, so you're own if somebody shows up at your house asking about your kneecaps. (* - That's what we meant by "free.")

Free* WiFi tethering available for rooted Evo 4Gs


The one thing that was holding me back from getting the Evo this week. Now another thing has come up. At least it's a good thing.

Ok, but seriously... What will Sprint do if they catch you? I have browsed their 'terms and conditions' and data plan info and the only thing that I see is "Phone as modem or tethering: not included." So what's the worst that can happen?

violation of contract terms subject to termination of line(s)

LOL, i guess just be smart about it. Convince them you do a lot of video chats over 3g/4g

you could tell Sprint, the phone uses a lot of data and thats why I pay an extra $10 a month, on top of the everything data plan. otherwise whtas the point of paying the extra $10?

Sprint has stated they will not "block out", or charge, for tethering applications or methods outside of the built-in app/$29 fee.

This was extremely easy to do... was rooted, via Unrevoked, and had my notebook connected all within 10 minutes... awesome... there will be donations coming from me!

Rooted with Unrevoked. Connected to a Win7 laptop and the network shows up as Android Wifi tether or something like that but no internet connection. No info about my laptop shows up on the device. Any ideas?

Same issue here.. rooted "#" and also have evorecovery installed. NO unrevoked mod done yet. I am using the most current release.

Any ideas?

Now all I need to find is a way to change my DNS server options to my OPENDNS servers and I'll be all good! Nice find. Thanks!

i got my evo on day one. and the battery sucks doesnt last me more then 4 hrs until i get the recharge screen. this is with data and gps on. and thats with just texting. maybe 5 mins of calling. is anyone else like that

OK tried it out and it is awesome. Tethered my WiFi iPad to my Evo with 1 bar of 4G in my Chicago office and got 2160 down and 853 up in Speedtest. Surfed around in Safari and Atomic browsers, downloaded a few apps, all worked really well. Donation is forthcoming.

I don't see myself using this very often but it sure was nice to have it as a free option now. Thanks to the app developer and AC for sharing the info.

Working nicely. Can't get it to work with security settings (Wireless connects, but limited availability for internet) So, I'm using the authorized client option, but I'd really like to figure out why the security settings aren't allowing my laptop to connect.

LOL.... wifi tethering works perfectly....couldn't ask for anything else...thanx santa lol
