Just passing along the info for those that didn't know. It's not a complete tethering solution but it's working. [GUIDE] USB Tether Sprint HTC Hero CDMA! Setup: (This setup is not required but is what I have running when it works) I downloaded HTC sync 2.0.4 from http://www.htc.com/uk/SupportViewNew...31&news_id=222 Install HTC sync Backup the Driver folder from Program File>HTC>HTC Driver Now Uninstall HTC Sync, You only want to keep the Drivers for MNS. Now plug in your phone go to Settings>Wireless controls Turn on Mobile network Turn on MNS or Mobile Network Sharing It will try to connect but fail instead leave it. Now on the Computer it should ask to install the Android phone drivers, in this case choose manual install and point it to the drivers in the folder you just backed up. If it doesn't ask you to install simply go to hardware management and install it manually from there. Also I am running vista 32bit on my laptop. Method: Now this method works by taking advantage of a race condition in the phone. Essentially you want to get MNS to establish a connection to your computer BEFORE the mobile network can establish a connection with internet. (Hence where signal strength and lag play a key roll) Make sure wifi is turned off, make sure you are plugged into the computer and have installed the MNS drivers, I have USB debugging enabled but i don't think that makes a difference. Steps: 1. Turn off Mobile Network and MNS 2. Go to Mobile network settings 3. Select Mode of Operation switch to 1x-only 4. Go back one page 5. Turn on Mobile network 6. Quickly Turn on MNS also 7. If MNS connects before Mobile network you should be tethered now If not turn off Mobile network and MNS and repeat steps 5-6. 8. If successfully tethered go back to Mobile network settings and turn Mode of Operation back to Evdo or Hybrid.

After you connect the USB to the PC, and your Mobile Network setting is disabled, go to the browser on your phone and browse to a webpage. It will say it needs an internet connection. At that point, go back to the phone settings and turn on Mobile network and MNS. Make sure you are connecting with 1X only. Once connected, you can change it to Hybrid. Worked for me. Hopefully this helps someone!
