As i mentioned i am new to this whole rooting thing and i just need some more in depth info.
the root standard for inspire and desire hd is the AAHK,wich is available here: Advanced Ace Hack Kit | TAU – It's All About The Negative
make sure you read everything thuroughly on the page and in the effin manual.
the AAHK will downgrade,s-off,superCID,and simunlock your phone. you can use your att inspre on t mobile,but you will only get edge data
as for your tether questions,im not really suposed to discuss that as a guide,so i cannot help you get it working. but yet,it will eat up your data,just as if you were browsing the internet on your phone itself,so if you dont have unlimited data,make sure you keep an eye on it.
