Hi all... Every thread I look at is already locked. I don't know if this is posted elsewhere or not but I was actually surprised to find out that alot of people are having problems with there tethering. I've had the Optimus V for over a year and not a single problem with it. There are more tutorials around here than I can shake a stick at, so I'll just keep it simple and tell you my setup: LG-VM670 2.3.7 Gingerbread ClockworkMod Recovery v220.127.116.11 CyanogenMod-7.1.0-BACKside-IHO-KANG I don't have a hotspot app... in this version, it's actually built into the settings menu: Settings>Wireless & networks>Tethering & portable hotspot. It allows for USB tethering and Portable Wi-Fi hotspot under infrastructure and allows you to name and secure your hotspot with WPA2 PSK encryption. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
