    TL;DR: Go Launcher Ex + Go Switch Widger = Root free wireless tether

    Today I discovered something quite awesome! I was tethering my phone to my computer with my fancy applications, no paid apps or ad riddled apps either.

    A little background on my phone:

    Go Launcher Ex
    Go Power Switch Widget

    If you go to manage your power settings within the Go Power Switch Widget, there is an option labeled: WIFI AP. The first couple of times I tried it, it kept force closing on me, but I think the third or fourth time, it allowed me to set up my SSID and encryption.

    I was tethering at school with 3Mbps down for like 2 hours

    Works great, and no suspicious apps to worry about or having to pay for an app that might not work because of root or not.
