    TL;DR: Go Launcher Ex + Go Switch Widger = Root free wireless tether

    Today I discovered something quite awesome! I was tethering my phone to my computer with my fancy applications, no paid apps or ad riddled apps either.

    A little background on my phone:

    Go Launcher Ex
    Go Power Switch Widget

    If you go to manage your power settings within the Go Power Switch Widget, there is an option labeled: WIFI AP. The first couple of times I tried it, it kept force closing on me, but I think the third or fourth time, it allowed me to set up my SSID and encryption.

    I was tethering at school with 3Mbps down for like 2 hours

    Works great, and no suspicious apps to worry about or having to pay for an app that might not work because of root or not.

    oh ok, the funny thing is that I was using that software for a while before I even knew it had tethering lol it was a total accident.
