    Thats right you can reverse tether to access internet on ur phone from pc..

    To do this, install an app called better terminal after rooting.
    Create a hotspot, connect ur pc to the phone.. Then Bridge Wireless network and ur Local Area Network..

    open better terminal on phone and type

    su
    netcfg wl0.1 dhcp

    Close it and ull now have internet access on ur phone


    There's also a way to do this via USB but It requires working drivers :(.. USB reverse tethering works in linux though..

    We do have a working USB driver currently, i don't have a linux distro installed on my system so i'm trying to figure a way out for the same in XP.

    If you would like to suggest anything please reply.

    In linux, i first made my USB0 connection to shared with all networks
    then in terminal emulator i typed
    su
    netcfg usb0 dhcp


    I think this is also possible in XP if you find a way to bridge the USB connection with your Local area Network.. Pretty much the same thing as wifi
    then use
    su
    netcfg usb0 dhcp

    Good luck :)

    @rainzzz ,
    That's a amazingly gr8 find :p
    The app seems to be new in Market :)

    If it is developed by u its really cool :D

    Btw really gr8 developed though i havn't tried it yet :p

    and ya the limitation is something weird !! the afternoon and evening stuff :D
    There r other ways :D I think just keeping the connection limit for some time in free one is a awesome idea or may be Ads will help you :p
