    I'm rooted and am looking to figure out how to get my USB tethering back... I know I can do wireless, but prefer to use usb with my laptop so the phone charges at the same time while I surf.

    Thanks!

    I asked the same thing myself earlier. It was suggested I use easytether or pdanet. I downloaded both and am using easytether, its pretty nice.

    Grrr... free editions of both block https access. I'd like to find a free workaround. But if I have to spring $10, I guess it's not the end of the world.

    Seeing that you are rooted, if you are interested in trying a custom ROM, Conition comes with Mobile AP bundled in the ROM.

    It is free and easy method and allows you to tether via wifi.

    NOTE: If you have not tried to flash a custom ROM and are thinking about trying just remember the first, last, and middle rule is to alway BACKUP everything before you begin - ROM manager nandroid backup and Titanium Backup. Becareful and be sure this is something you want to do before you try it!!!

    Yeah, I was contemplating Cognition... Then today, I Ti Backed up everything then Rom manager'ed Cognition on it. It's pretty sweet. Seems much faster and I have buildin wifi and usb tethering.
