    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. :)

    I was gonna say, I use Barnacle all the time with my iPod, it works flawlessly.

    My ipod says that it connects to the phones ad hoc, but it won't let me acess anything internet wise. Can't go on itunes, the app store, youtube anything. Any help? Also im 2nd gen 8gb (old 2nd) on final 4.1 jailbroken

    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.
