Any way to get it with non-root? FoxFi and PDANet+ don't seem to work.

If we do root, is it guaranteed that wifi for root users will work? I suppose it would be worth it...

I finally got tether to work on my phone...
Used wifi tether trevers mod
Device profile: generic ics/jb wlan0
Setup method: netd-ndc
Send netd Max client cmd: check
Wifi-driver reload 2: check
Mss clamping: check
Routing fix: check
Change preferred DNS: 66.1.60.132 (may be different for you. Check by: getprop net.dns1 )
Change alternate DNS: 66.1.60.133 (getprop net.dns2 )

...
Just got it working ... 15 mins no problem... Will update in couple days if all goes well..
