Googleandroidsdkv09Well, the first Android handset is out and it only took a few short weeks for a tethering solution to appear. I’ve returned my review unit, so I’m unable to test the instructions that appear over on the TMoNews forums. You’ll need to download and install a third-party application first and follow that with the Android SDK on your computer. A little configuration to set up your host device as a proxy server and you should be in business.

Sounds like a complicated solution to me, but then again 3G for no additional charge just might be worth it. As the developer says: this is highly experimental, so if you go this route, you’re on your own. But share the results if you give it a try, ‘k?

  1. The Proxy Application does not install on my phone. I do have enabled installation of third party apps in phone settings but during the installation it ask me if I want to overwrite an existent file. I went and say ok to overwrite and I got that error message saying that it was unable to install the application.

  2. For what I can see, that only works with firmware version RC19. I updated mine today to RC29.

  3. Installing the Android SDK is not required for Windows boxes, and it should not be a requirement for very long for standard Linux / Mac distros as people build / release versions of their own. You’re just grabbing the SDK for the adb utility as far as I can see.

    That said: THANK YOU! Now I need to sell something expensive to make room for the G1…

  4. I was able to install it, but not by downloading it through the browser. I use “adb install Proxy.apk” from the command prompt after downloading the file to my computer and getting everything set up with the SDK. I’m using RC29 also.

  5. Oops, I should say – you’re grabbing the SDK only for the adb utility, which is available separately as a small download.
