    If he called it a payment, palm may have a problem with that. They might want a piece of the action. Calling it a donation makes it sound like just that.

    I'm pretty sure that won't work because of the required drivers. I tried my PSP and PS3 and neither could even detect the wifi-enabled Pre.

    Anyways, yea the donation thing is a bummer. I read that it was only $10 but when I went to "donate", the minimum amount was at $15. Nevertheless, I payed the required amount and absolutely love it!

    Both wifi and usb work flawlessly on Vista. Lol, I even got my brother's iPhone to connect successfully when in wifi mode. Even USB works on Linux (Ubuntu). My only request would be to get wifi to work on Linux (since I rarely use Windows).

    Other than that, no complaints at all.

    I have also tried my kids psp3000 and his ds lite. It could be the drivers installed on these devices, but it could also be the net cards installed in the devices. I know the psp is compatible with ad-hoc connnections.

    I'm having problems rooting my Pre. I did the command prompt thing but it said that novacom is not recognized. Any tips? I've put the Pre in developer mode.

    I just got my Pre to work with MyTether via USB.

    Here are some test with USB tethering:





    Here are the results with WiFi Tethering:





    I'm doing the testing in my house. I my old phone (as of 9/14/2009) a HTC/Mogul would consistently get between 1 - 1.5 Mbits down and about the same speed up.. I am disappointed in the download speed from the Pre. Is there anything I can do to tweak it?

    Thanks

    PS. Just for fun I'm going to add my FIOS results:

    You have to signup for this forum first. Once you have a username you have to pay $14.95 (they call it a donation, forced != donation IMO). When sending the payment for the software remember to add your mytether forum username.

    Once the payment is received you'll be given access to the "Donors" only forum where you'll be able to download 2.0.1. Access for me was almost instant - not sure if I was just lucky or not.

    It is indeed not a forced donation... considering there is instructions on the OP for the software for free. Keep in mind the Dev does not owe anyone a free tethering app. and considering 14.95 is a fraction of the price what it would cost if you were to use sprints phone as a modem plan (this phone doest not support) or their usb modem... any other tethering app for phoens int the past are more then double that price. On top of it all he is providing a free version but it just doesnt seem fair for the dev to spend all the time to create such a useful application and not receive some sort of thank you now does it. The Donor version is the Dev's way to show his appreciation.

    I agree with devs being compensated for their time and effort and I had no problems paying the $14.95 fee. What we're talking about is semantical more than anything. The only way to get 2.0.1 as far as I can tell is to pay $14.95 - that is more than a thank you; that is a fee for a service or app NOT a donation.

    I appreciate the fact that a free version is offered and if I used it and found it useful I would definitely donate for that app. But there are 2 different versions 1.5.0 which can be downloaded and installed for free and 2.0.1 which can only be acquired by paying a $14.95 FEE.

    For the 2.0.1 App he should charge $30. It's worth it!!

    Agreed - I wouldn't have a problem paying $30 for the app.

    Help needed!!! Got my tether donation works great on my laptop via wi-fi. I also have an ipod touch, it sees the pre connection connects to the pre's connection but will NOT give me a signal. Is there something that needs to be done? If I can get my laptop to connect and surf the web, but not the ipod touch what am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
