ATT wants $50 more on top of the $160 we are already paying to upgrade the data plan in order to enable tethering on my HTC One X. This is robbery. I've tried three tethering apps and my phone is rooted. Nothing seems to work.

Please advise.

Yeah, I don't like the plan games and don't have time to figure that mess out. I'd rather stick with root and figure out a tethering method that works. What is the best app to make this happen?

There is a way to use ES file explorer... I don't remember exactly how it is, look for it

flash a custom rom then you can easily achieve tethering

if you want to stay stock rooted, there's a mod to remove AT&T from the signal bar so it just shows 3G, H+...etc that will also allow you to tether directly from the built in hot spot. forgot the mod name otherwise i would have thrown you a link. you can probably find it on xda

That's fantastic news. When rooting the first time, I used this toolkit http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2587677. It has run apps requiring root so I think it is still rooted although I wish it would tell me when it updates because ATT no longer seems to find any except for individual apps. Once I got it rooted, I didn't follow through with a custom ROM because I didn't know how to check the popularity and stability of them. I would love to have tethering so that I can hot spot my phone when needed, and I would also like to have 'real' call recording as opposed to microphone based call recording. Assistance in where to go with this would be greatly appreciated.
