Wireless Tether without permanent Rooting
I've been digging thru the various threads about temporary root (Z4Root, SuperOneClick and Visionary) and there are so many comments about "Yes it works" vs "No it doesn't work" that it is totally confusing. Plus trying to dig thru 100's of pages of comments makes it mind numbing.
I have a stock EVO4g that has the current updates and I like the stock Rom and it fulfills my needs, so I would like to keep it. My wife's needs wifi tethering only once in a while and I would like to use my EVO4G to do Wifi Tether and allow her to do what she has to do.
Does anyone know what is the quickest way to obtain temporary root to wifi tether? What apk's do I need for the temp root and also wifi tether.

Download the z4root apk version 1.3.0 and just select the temporary root option. Then download the wireless wifi tether app from the Market. Works great. If you need to reboot your phone you will need to rerun the temporary root option again....

You are correct. I haven't even gotten my EVO yet and was just looking in the market when i saw this thread. Looks like I might rooting as this is something I would really like to have.
Let me know how the temporary root goes, I'm curious.

i use the unrevoked forever 3. and i can confirm that wireless tether does work.
i've never gotten barnacle to work.
as for temporary root. i have no idea. but i have the stock rom available. should my phone need to be fixed. i can restore it to stock without any hitches.

Well I installed busybox from the Titanium Backup Free, and now z4Root seems to run fine, but when I start up wifi tether, I still get the message that the phone is not rooted. If I bypass the message, I then go into wifi-tether and I get the "press start to tether" message, but it never starts up.
