    weeeeee!

    Sorry, I'm new to the whole Android scene, Chevy, what do you use for wireless tether? PDAnet? I heard VZW was crackign down on non-plan tethering...

    I picked up one of those firesale TouchPads and having free wireless tether would be awesome!

    Its just called 'Wireless Tether' in the android market. Lets you do bluetooth or WiFi ad-hoc connection to a laptop or 'whatever can do ad-hoc' and share internet.
    Link: https://market.android.com/details?id=android.tether

    PDAnet is free, but not if you want HTTPS access. 'Wireless Tether' has no limits.

    I've also had good luck with 'Barnacle'

    AWESOME NEWS!!! I was wondering how long it would be before I could use tethering too.

    @Clearrants: Wireless Tether for root users is what I have used in the past.

    Well this is certainly welcome news. Now, let's see if they can get that bootloader unlocked.

    Well I already knew it was root-able already. Nice to see one actually get rooted.

    I have no idea how to root, so I'd be afraid of ruining the bionic

    You can bet a one click will be out for it before it's even released on the 8th. I wouldn't worry too much. This is great news for those of us that use titanium backup, though. It'll make moving to the Bionic so much easier.

    Of course I'll want to make sure there is a way to backup and unroot, if necessary. Coming from an Eris we had the recovery console and a Nand backup. Does Motorola have something similar?

    I think we'll need an SBF to recover it with but I'm not 100% sure.

    That's why I had been keeping a close eye on the Droid 3. I just knew that the Droid 3 was going to be a great guinea pig for the Bionic. Alright you Droid 3 hackers. Get to work on getting us potential Bionic users clockwork recovery before we get our phone. Another thing I hoping we get soon after is an official .sbf for the bionic. The D3 hasn't seen one yet except for that chinese version that will brick the phone. Oh yeah an unlocked bootloader but i'm not holding my breath on that one anytime soon.

    Yup! I knew it wouldn't take long.

    Be careful with wireless tether you could get zapped with large fees and / or fines.

    I agree. Its getting 'dangerous'. I rarely use it... just if I happen to get paged and I need to "dial-in" to VPN using my laptop to fix a problem on our servers when i'm away from home.

    Honestly, thats what I plan on using the Lapdock and my citrix connnection for in the future, So Wireless tether is a thing of the past for me, in most cases.

    Hell, I really don't want or really need to use tethering in any way - I just would like to zap that unremovable up-your-arseware that VZW forces onto OUR phones.

    I just use my Xoom's official wifi tethering capability if I need tethering. Yea, it's not unlimited data, but, I'm not usually in a place where I need to tether a laptop anyway. Besides, that's yet another thing that eats battery.

    Quick Q: Regarding tether, is it fair to assume that 'Wireless Tether' will work simply because the Bionic can be rooted? The app appears to require a kernel which supports netfilter (iptables). Do we know for sure that the Bionic is so equipped? I searched, but couldn't find a definitive answer. Thanks in advance.

    I may wait a little while before I root it, but I know I'll eventually want to try it. Especially for free tethering, I really want that

    As far as wireless tethering... I found I was able to "tether" through Bluetooth with the Motorola drivers installed on my windows 7 laptop. Fairly easy and I'm not sure if this mentioned as a no no by Verizon? Anyone know?

    I'd say if you can do it with a completely stock build on your phone (no rooting, no new ROM, etc..) and it is using the built-in bluetooth stack that came with it, then they can't really fault you for it as you're not doing anything it wasn't capable of out of the box. However, if you've done any of the aforementioned steps to get to where you are, then they could easily see that as a 'no no'
