    OK, without having to root my phone with 16 annoying steps, I was trying to use PDAnet Bluetooth DUN to tether my new iTouch to the LG Ally. Unfortunately, the iTouch says the LG Ally isnt a supported device. I also have an iPad (same error) So does anyone know of a way to do this? I work on a windows 7 pc, so Linux rooting isnt my bag. Do I just have to wait till someone makes an EZ App? I know my phone will get tethering in the new update (whenever that is) but I know verizon will charge extra to use it.

    Use universal androot. One click root and un-root.

    Then download Barnacle wifi tether from the market.

    Pretty sure you can't tether the iPods or iPads to ally because the ally tether is ad-hoc rather than full blown hotspot.

    If you took the recent firmware update (to VZC), Universal Androot won't help. Try z4root from the market -- I've not used it, but many in the root forum have reported success.

    But, as RussianMenace stated, all you can do at this point is create an ad-hoc network which may not work for your situation.

    Just tried tethering using Punisher 0.1 and barnacle, as well as V 0.4 wireless tether on my Gen2 iTouch. It didn't work.

    Just tried it again after updating my iTouch OS to 4.X works like a charm.

    Good deal. :)

    Redundant devices are redundant.

    I have the exact same iPod, except mines on 4.2.1 jailbroken. You could try restoring to 4.2.1 and see if that works.

    I have rooted using forum xda developer,that rooted from PC.
    But I have another problem with N network. My PC does see network but tablet Archos didn't. So my question is any other application can do G network.

    z4root roots fantabulously on the Ally. However, it is not on the market. You have to enable Non-trusted apps, and get it from here:

    z4root download for Android - Softpedia

    PS I do not vouch for this source, feel free to google search "z4root" and choose your own download source for the apk.
