    I heard there are two ways to get free wifi tether.I don't know which one is safe or if that even matters.I know people here are more experienced than myself so this is why I ask for help.

    I used this method here to get my wifi tethering using adb.
    How to Get Free Wifi Tether on Your Atrix 4G! | Atrix 4G Hacks

    These links are the ones that I found which talk about different ways to get wifi tethering to back up my question.

    If it's just an adhoc tether devices like the xoom won't connect, better to use apn tehering

    I rooted my phone, modified the APN to bypass the check, but 2.3.4 broke that. There is now a hack where you edit a moto pref file and change a database entry. Once changed and the phone rebooted the check is removed completely and you can use the native WiFi and USB tethering as they were meant to be used.

    I used the db editor method. I still get a pop up warning about my account has be authorized. I'm able to ignore it and continue. I guess that means it works and it won't be known that I'm tethering?

    depends on your carrier... for me tethering is included in my data plan so i dont need to worry about that on rogers... tho other carriers may care and trust me they can tell...

    AT&T will start placing people who do unauthorized tethering on a plan. If you are in the group, you will get email and a letter about it.

    Make sure you go to your browser, go to 4shared.com - free file sharing and storage, and type in wifi tether. Scroll down until you see "Wifi tether v3_1 beta" and make sure you have unknown sources checked or it won't work.

    How does this work better than getting the built in tethering to work?

    Try "barnacle" (Google it!) ... all you need is root and the app. Best method I have found.... much better than the stock app.

    Enjoy! :-)
