    Yea a true noob here. Im new to even the smart phone... So yea. I rooted my samsung admire and i changed my phones prl here in miam lakes (33014) FL from 3018 to 3022, and walla i had 3g speeds right in the middle of miami :D. Huge thanks to all you developers here. Now i wanna see if i can wifi tether my phone to my computer. I just want to know if theres a guide out there that will work with my samsung admire so i can wifi tether with my laptop.

    I already know the speed might be crap or it might not connect right, but id really love to try so please anyone out there a little help?

    Thanks

    The app "wifi tether for root users" works like a charm.

    Let me know where else in Miami you get 3g. I'm in homestead but work all over the place (I maintain trees)

    Did you actually get this to work on your rooted admire? It never seems to work on mine.

    EASY FIX For metroPCS unsupported teather block

    If your phone is rooted you can edit the build.prop file found in /system/build.prop and your phone will tether with noproblem bypassing metroPCS block Wireless or USB!

    Open build.prop with in a text editor by long pressing the file until a menu comes up.
    Scroll to the bottom of the file and look for ....

    metropcs-us
    ro.tether.denied=true <-- Change to false save and exit.

    *Your Phone will have to be rooted to edit this file.

    This is only one way of many to manipulate your phone to work the way you want it to.

    Tether On!

    Hey has anyone figured this out. I did what you said on here to do and it didnt work. I havent had the need to tether until the other day. Our company had a problem with the internet connection and I had no internet for two days at work. My job requires me to do work online and I didnt want my work to back up, especially since my work involves aviation.

    Am I suppossed to delete the build.prop.bak afterwards or is there another solution.....

    BTW, I lmao when I saw ## mysteryemotionz was here ## lol

    you have to have a text editor app... 920 text editor is pretty easy to use...just hit the folder icon and scroll down

    Hi RobertT22,

    I have samsung admire. I have rooted phone and I have titanium back up as well as Superuser. All are working great.

    I went through all of this so I may tether my phone to my MAC and get internet.

    I cannot find the Build.Prop file on my Samsung. Can you help?

    I have downloaded Easytether onto computer, but am unable to download the Samsung driver as it is in EXE format.

    If you can give me tip on how to tether mAc Book Pro to Samsung admire , Mucho Gracias...
    Thanks
    D

    I was getting that also with the latest PRL, I downgraded to the one before it, I think it was 3026 and it worked fine for me and open garden. Just my suggestion
