Update 02-06-2012


Dead download links removed, new mirror added.

Update 31-03-2011



Sources added. (usbt.7z)

Update 16-12-2010

Added new C version suitable both for Froyo and Eclair (2.1)stones.

No need to upgrade the older B version, nothing changes for froyo users.

To avoid confusion the IP needed to get the tethering are the same of froyo.

The SW is untested on eclair 2.0.x



------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usb tether is working natively on the latest Cyanogen ROMs from kabaldan, Froyo mod from 89luca89, and derivatives, but is still not 100% reliable and is not so handy to use, so an updated release of my app still makes sense.

So, as usual, install the app, put the phone in portal mode and configure manually (one time only operation) the IP on the PC side as the screenshot: (beware the IPs are changed from the previous release)




Then just tap to the icon.


The same IPs is needed to use the native froyo function

The application doesn't rely on the MS compatible NDIS lan (called usb0 on froyo milestones) but on the motorola usb networking (called usb0 on eclair and lan0 on froyo) so you must have the usual Motorola drivers installed on the PC. (I suggest to keep them handy on the Milestone's SD card).



The application is based on my previous release for eclair, which in turn is based on the well known android wired tether 1.1 application.

The app doesn't works on eclair milestones, nor on any other brand android phones.

AFAIK isn't working (yet) on Linux or macos due to lack of driver.

You must unisnstall android wired theter (if you have it installed) and any older release of this app before install this SW.

The program should live side by side with the native app, w/o any problem

Unlike the native function you can disconnect and reconnect the cable w/o the need of restart the function.

Unlike the native function you will have a speedometer and a session data counter.

So I hope you appreciate this little effort.

Due to the changes in the latest release of cyanogen (0.04-10.11.20), this sw is broken on that rom.

I'll wait to a kabaldan's reply, before recompile the sw.

For Cyano build 0.04 (and later) you can use the native usb tether function.

You have just to configure manually your lan as above, but with differnt IPs


IP 192.168.42.1

GW and DNS 192.168.42.129

As above the phone must be in portal mode before enabling the native usb tether.

What do you mean ? That it works even w/o the manually configured IPs or that it isn't working even following the my instructions ?

There isn't any modem to detect or to use, there must be a new lan card.

You must have the Motorola drivers installed.

The new flavor of native tethering works exactly like my SW: it uses the Motorola networking drivers rather than the microsoft rndis driver.

The latter is already present on win seven/vista/linux, the former must be installed manually.

Hello:

after updated to 0.04 or 0.05, the native usb tethering is not working anymore.

I have enable the portal mode and plug the usb cable and neither the native usb tehering nor solutor tethering apk works. My XP computer does not detects any new hardware. and thus I cannot install any driver in my computer (tetherxp.inf)
