    Wifi Tether + Backflip

    Here is how to Tether Using WIFI:

    *THIS REQUIRES ROOT*

    1. Download and Install http://szym.net/projects/barnacle/ for szym.net: Barnacle Wifi Tether. Get 0.5.1 - Direct APK Link
    2. Select "skip wpa_supplicant"
    3. go to DHCP
    - select DNS 1 and enter: 8.8.4.4
    - select DNS 2 and enter: 8.8.8.8
    4. Start Tethering!

    Notes about this method:
    - Make sure you are not connected to a Wifi network when using the Tether App or it will cause it to force close.
    - This may not work if you have flashed the recovery rom or have the modified busybox installed.
    - If you don't want to use GoogleDNS, try OpenDNS... 208.67.220.220 / 208.67.222.222

    Thanks to rht_rv and Dorian

    Anyone feel free to post their results with this method.

    I downloaded the latest (as of today) Wifi Tether from wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre9.apk - android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users 2.0.5-pre9 *** EXPERIMENTAL *** - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Version 2.0.5-pre9 as advertised for the Samsung Galaxy I7500 1.5 (Cupcake).

    It loads and installs the binaries with errors, but proceeds anyway. I enable tethering and used my laptop to see that the AndroidTether SSID was in the list. I connected and got an IP address. Everything was looking good, however it wouldn't connect to the internet. When I loaded Chrome, it would have some data transfer on the wifi tether, but the page would never be displayed.

    Anyone else attempt with a different version or different result?
    1) download the latest version of barnacle wifi tether from here: szym.net: Barnacle Wifi Tether

    make sure to get .5.1

    2) select "skip wpa_supplicant"

    3) go to DHCP

    4) select DNS 1 and put: 8.8.4.4

    5) select DNS 2 and put 8.8.8.8

    6) click start AND ENJOY TETHERING!!!!!!

    I know it's kind of redundant, but before you tap start after following rht_rv's directions, you need to make sure your WiFi is switched off and not connected to any local WiFi networks. If your WiFi is on, and you're connected locally to another access point, the app will FC. Also, if you don't want to use GoogleDNS, try OpenDNS...

    thanks for mentioning that i forgot to say to disconnect from wifi.

    here is a good article on googleDNS vs openDNS:
    OpenDNS vs Google DNS: Which is Better ?

    even though it says openDNS is faster in the USA, for me google was faster

    pdanet costs money doesn't it? Can anyone confirm the method?

    Also, can anyone confirm it works via both interfaces? USB Tether and Bluetooth DUN
