    Hey everyone, quick question --

    So I want to tether my phone to my computer using that option the phone gives you when you plug it in via miniUSB. Windows XP does not find any drivers when I tell it to look for them. Is there some program or place I can get them?

    I was told that with root you could go around programs like EasyTether and PDAnet which don't allow you to go to https sites.

    Thanks

    I'm a drifter.. here and there.
    Download Google SDK, from there... update all drivers.

    Dont ask where to find Google SDK, just google it. I'm sure u can handle it :) All the drivers will be in there when its done updating. good luck.

    If its an option, just use wireless tethering with anetshare.
    So much easier.

    Wireless tethering is great...however my HP laptop is a defective piece of junk and occasionally the wi-fi card isn't recognized so I have to resort to the wired connection :(

    But I'll update all those drivers via the SDK.

    Wired connections suck, what with charging the underpowered 1300 mAh battery and all...
