    Download the "foxfi". App on Google play. It doesn't require a root. My brother and my dad use it instead of paying the extra $20 like I do :-(

    That only works if both devices you want to tether has bluetooth. The whole purpose of rooting is you don't have to pay the $20.

    If you already have JellyBean here is the best way to root.

    I just rooted and installed a deodexed stock jellybean ROM and I'm tethering away...an odexed ROM will not work on Sprint for tethering.

    It will if you use SuperSu instead of superuser.

    That's usually the main reason most of us root anyways. )

    I found this out after I went through all of that...one thing I have noticed it that my battery life is ALOT better after installing the deodexed rom though...any reason why that could be?
