I know this might be slightly off-topic (not directly related to a port of Android for the HP TouchPad)...but as someone who recently purchased a 32gig TouchPad via this past weekend's firesale...I'd love to find a way to tether my Android phone to my TouchPad for use on the go?

Has anyone been able to successfully tether their TouchPad to a non-webOS phone? If so, how??

Thanks much! :android-smile:

Mobile hotpot + wifi = profit
I should have added, my Android phone (Samsung Charge) is non-rooted...and I'd really love to find a way to tether my TouchPad without having to root my phone...or having to pay Verizon for a "tethering plan".

Thanks! :)

i have my rooted DX on Liquid 2.6 and have been tethering to my 32gb no problem
only if you tell them about it..... root can always be undone and phone can be taken back to stock...some circumstances where that is not true ie bricking your phone

I have a rooted dinc2 running cm7. I am not able to tether to my touchpad.

I looks like you cannot set up adhoc with the touchpad. And I do not know how to get the tether to appear as wifi.

i have the wireless tethering app, its the same app i used to use on my OGdroid i just open it up hit the tether button then go into settings and wifi on my touchpad and search for networks then Android Tether comes up and i hit it and it connects perfectly, and its fast too, unless i go into the den and the phone doesnt get as fast 3g but it still does work

You won't be able to tether without root unless you give your first born child to Verizon...lol!

I tethered my 32gb with my Samsung Galaxy S2 (which has been rooted from day one...why wouldn't you?) and it works great. Touchpad is overclocked to 1.7 I found 1.2 and even 1.5 quit slow and annoying.

Tethered to a Droid 2 Global on CM, with an old version of wireless tether...Only because I was too tempted and had to set the Touchpad up.
