ClockworkMod Tether is another great useful app for Android developed by Koushik Dutta, the guy behind ClockworkMod Custom Recovery and DeskSMS. A week ago we posted about ClockworkMod Tether app which is a USB tether solution for Mac, Windows, and Linux that allows you to use your phone’s data connection to get internet access on your desktop or laptop without getting caught by your carrier as most of the carrier banned tethering and required an extra data plan for tether.
Full featured version of ClockworkMod Tether (no root) is now available on Android Market to download and it’s a 14 day trial. You will have full unfettered usage for 14 days, after which you will only be able to download 20MB a day. To get full access buy Tether Premium from the application’s menu at a price for $4.99 in app purchase to unlock the full version and support future development!
ClockworkMod Tether does not require root on your phone and does not require a separate tethering plan. Tether should work with any carrier and phone and does not require a carrier’s tethering plan. To get around the root requirement on your phone, Tether will need to install a virtual network adapter on your computer; so there is a PC side install.
1) Download and Insatll ClockworkMod Tether app (from this Link) or in Android Market link at the end of instructions.

If your PC does NOT have an internet connection at the moment, start Tether for Android and use the Help button to easily download the PC software to your phone. You can then copy it to your PC and install!
Windows users will also need to install the USB/ADB driver for their phone. Tether’s setup process will assist you through that step by step, or you can use the link below!
