OK, I picked up my HTC Hero (HTC Hero (Sprint) Smartphone reviews - CNET Reviews) last Sat and got the tethering working fine on Windows 7 Pro x64. The firmware version shows 1.5 I used the method found here: [GUIDE] USB Tether Sprint HTC Hero CDMA! - Android Forums I had to make some changes for Windows 7 x64 though, but it works great using this method. My question is, does the tethering work for higher firmware versions? Is anyone tethering the same as I and if so, what is your firmware version?
