    Any way to get it with non-root? FoxFi and PDANet+ don't seem to work.

    If we do root, is it guaranteed that wifi for root users will work? I suppose it would be worth it...

    I finally got tether to work on my phone...
    Used wifi tether trevers mod
    Device profile: generic ics/jb wlan0
    Setup method: netd-ndc
    Send netd Max client cmd: check
    Wifi-driver reload 2: check
    Mss clamping: check
    Routing fix: check
    Change preferred DNS: 66.1.60.132 (may be different for you. Check by: getprop net.dns1 )
    Change alternate DNS: 66.1.60.133 (getprop net.dns2 )

    ...
    Just got it working ... 15 mins no problem... Will update in couple days if all goes well..
