Idea of creating tethering widget, was intention to make Built-in feature available from launcher. As you know, Android 2.2 (FroYo) announced new feature – Tethering(Sharing internet connection with other devices via USB or WiFi).
Also, mind that Android is an OpenSource product, and some major vendors(operators) had modified sources to fill next goals:
- Tethering should not allow users to create GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA/3G high-load connection, as this will require more broadband routers and increasing bandwidth
- If operator has WiFi network, tethering should be allowed, as this network will work fine with high-load – not to prevent access to other customers
Attention! Tethering widget just making your life easier by providing widget for existing feature. Man, if your vendor released its own 2.2 FroYo and changed tethering to fill his goals(see above), sorry, you can’t get widget working as described here.
Don’t try to install this widget on android versions < 2.2
