has anyone got it working yet on 2.2?
also i am rooted so if there is an app please i need it
Im using pda net on 2.2 it still works
yes but costs 30 to use https and that just sux
Hope this helps??
I updated my Evo to the Froyo 2.2 on the 29th and lost my wireless tether/unrevoked3 so I stayed up most of the night messing with it trying to get any tether without the $30 fee from Sprint.
After a few hours I finally got the USB Tether to work. I first went to Mobile Apps and Games for Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Android, Symbian, and Palm | Handango and purchase an app called Tether Plus for $6.99 one-time fee, dragged it onto my SD card via usb disk drive and install. Make sure to have Unknown Sources checked in your application settings so that this app will install. Follow the direction it gives you because you have to go to a link on your computer the download driver and .exe file. Unfortunately this will only work for computer that are 32-bit and lower. I have Windows 7, 64-bit.
Sooooo, I searched and searched and found a computer driver for an app called Easy Tether (didn't buy this one because it cost just a hair more $9.99, there's a free version but I found that it didn't load a lot of websites like https) which has both the 32-bit and 64-bit and downloaded the 64-bit...taa daa...it works. Here's the link Download EasyTether drivers
All you do after all of this is...open up the Launch tetherplus.exe on your computer...connect your Evo via USB and check Charge Only....right click on your tetherplus icon in your taskbar which actually says TP...and click connect via android (HT077HL03713). The #s in the parenthesis maybe different per each phone...not sure.
Anyways...there you have it. I am online now using my Tether Plus App through the USB charge only on my EVO and it's hella fast!! BTW...my USB tether is working and I do see the 3G on...I don't have 4G in my area.
netarchy release his new fps fix for 2.2. (over at xda) Wifi tethering works when you flash this. I am using omj's 2.2 ROM, which comes with the wireless tether app preinstalled.
did some research and found out that android wired tether needs CONFIG_NETFILTER/CONFIG_IP_NF_IPTABLES and/or RNDIS
apparently stock Kernel for 2.2 doesn't have this because i get this error

Wired tethering with unrooted 2.2 still gives me error 67. Haven't tried 3rd party software yet.
anybody get it to work with htc sync? this is a fairly important feature to me, and i'd be willing to stay 2.1 if this doesn't work.
$18.95 actually PdaNet for Android Purchase Agreement
I was using EasyTether before the update (paid version, $9.99) and it still works afterward.
I don't see any advantage of PDAnet over EasyTether.
Are you SURE you guys aren't being charged by Sprint? I'd definitely go this route if not.
Does EasyTether wired USB do HTTPS on the EVO
Does it do Bluetooth?
I cqn confirm that PDANet is not causing any extra charges on my bill. The wife is living in another city right now and I set her up with PDANet on her EVO. Thus far since the EVO was released she has used around 5-7 GB of data each month and not a penny of added charges beyond the $10 EVO charge.
Though, still trying to figure out how she can used that much data when all she does is facebook and chat on alt....
This month will be the test, she begged me for access to the Netflix account...
Also, PDANet offers SMS intercept. Allows you to send and receive text messages on the computer and it seems to not disconnect you from the net like it normally would. I have to admit, chatting on the PC via text messages is pretty convenient.
I've never paid Sprint for tethering. Did it for almost 2 years with my previous phone as well.
The paid version of EasyTether does HTTPS, the free one does not.
What a bunch of crap that they disabled it. ****ers
so anyways, i grabbed pdanet (trial version) and i'm now up and running although the speeds are pretty crappy
although, i do suspect, sprint is running slow right now due to everyone upgrading. ( i hope that is why)
not sure why, but i can't get easy tether to work. it will connect, and maybe load one page, but that's about all it does
Make sure you're not going to secure sites (https)...the free version does not work on those.
androidforums doesn't load.
pdanet works as it's suppose to. jsut with it was faster. the modem icon pops up in the icon tray with only a 2.4meg connection
a little off topic, but...
Have you tried Zipwhip through Sprint? It allows you to send and receive text messages on the computer, too.
Any wired tether options that don't require an app on the computer? I'd be willing to pay upwards of $50 on each phone as a one time fee to bypass the computer needing a program on it too....I have a cradlepoint which I plug my phone into directly and then it has ethernet out which I would plug into my router and replace DSL....
When I plug my phone into the cradlepoint and select 'Internet Sharing' instead of charge only and so on it gives error 67....if I were to root are there ways around that?
