This program enables tethering (via wifi ) for "rooted" handsets running android (such as the Android DevPhone 1). Clients (your laptop for example) can connect via wifi (ad-hoc mode)and get access to the internet using the 3G, 2G mobile connection which is established by the handset. This application requires a "rooted"-device and(probably) a custom-kernel which supports netfilter (iptables)! Please see the FAQ for detailed information. For support, please see the FAQ or our Google Group .
Update : The install procedure for CyanogenMod has changed greatly. Please see the official CyanogenMod Wiki . I first wrote this guide several months ago and it became the most visited page on the site.
This page continues to be very popular among readers. The techniques described below rely upon a kernel bug that has long since been patched, but if you are able to downgrade your phone to an earlier version this process remains a very easy way to root your phone. Amazon Wireless has some great deals on newer android phones (A Samsung Vibrant for as low as $39 is a pretty good deal – that phone hauls butt) – and they are all easily rootable too (well, not quite one-click easy, but still pretty easy). Just about any of the newer phones shipping with 2.1 or 2.2 will blow the doors off of the older phones that can be downgraded to work with this one-click root bug, so I would recommend checking them out at least to see what you can get for cheap these days.
