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.

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

I've also had good luck with 'Barnacle'

Re: Droid Bionic is Rooted!

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.

Re: Droid Bionic is Rooted!

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

Re: Droid Bionic is Rooted!

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. :D

Re: Droid Bionic is Rooted!

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?

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.

Re: Droid Bionic is Rooted!

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.
