    I was able to bridge my wifi from my laptop to my Xbox no problem. Worked just fine. Here's my question, since my Xbox is the old school Xbox. So I was thinking there has to be a way to USB tether directly to the Xbox...
    Unfortunately, this is currently not possible. The original and 360 both lack compatible native drivers for Android phones. If the OS allowed for that level of user flexibility it would be possible. But until such features are available and included, you will need a device to act as a router.

    If this has changed, please let me know! It would mean the Android with XBOX is like a PSP on a PS3! We could stumble upon the next generation of gaming entertainment!

    ... but not likely.

    So I'm not so tech savy, I'm jus trying to watch iron man 2 on Netflix on my Xbox and my android is the only internet I have. my hotspot works flawless but runs up my data. I heard tethering would stop that but am having No luck in establishing a connection between my phone and Xbox. am I jus better off buying the movie an not wasting time? I'm really jus looking for a quick fix an I don't want to get into a bunch of electronic headache.

    Hotspot is the same as tethering. Either way you're using your mobile data.

    I connected, but it would only go on DSi apps (such as Flipnote Hatena) and it wouldn't connect with MarioKart DS.

    I have never tethered my xbox to my phone. Looking back, I played most of my games offline single payer. I hardly ever was able to keep track of my achievements, and that's all I wanted. I would not of used it to play on live or stream.

    Has anyone been able to successfully tether their android to Xbox live via Pdanet, Barnacle, wifi tether for root, or any others? If so ...which one and how. Found several threads and even videos with a Google search...but nothing really solid ...decided to ask our wonderful V community

    This does work with barnacle because I do it... guess what it doesn't lag.. and further more it only lags when you get a message or call.. so to all the ones that frown upon or down it.. don't knock till you try..data throttle? Pshhhhhhhhhh even after the Max used on your phone which is 2.5 gb a month it still runs fast as hell. I don't know what you guys are talking about the newer phones don't put off the same Xbox live speeds to their phones I tried with the galaxy s3 guess what.. not as fast as my optimus speeds

    I don't think you can tether it, you could do a WiFi hotspot though

    tethering to xbox live via your ov is pointless... to run efficiently, xbox live requires a minimum of 1.5mb/s dl speed... the reason youre not seeing the lag is because poor connections are given priorty during online multiplayer... this is unfair, causes extreme lag to all other players due to one persons poor connection, and ruins the experience... although xbox is beginning to take measures to weed out players with bad connections... i only play on highspeed and i leave the game as soon as i spot a player lagging (most of the time, sometimes i stay just to poon the laggers... roflmfao... man they get mad when you do that)!... now if xbox could just some up with a program to locate and ban all players caught using the 'lagswitch' glitch, that would be sweet!...
