As you all Droid users already know that your lovely Droid does all that iDon’t! But it fails in its claim when it come to tethering. Should I call it “Droid Don’t”? ;)

Well, some folks out there had already made USB tethering possible but now GUI based wi-fi tethering has also been made possible. This technique does not require you to run shell commands for everyday use. You can operate wi-fi tethering right from the GUI. A user ‘webacoustics’ on droidforums.net has successfully built a custom image of Android firmware 2.0.1 for Motorola Droid with the help of Android wi-fi Tether project to make it possible. But you have to root your Motorola Droid and install a custom kernel as well as a custom recovery image to get it working. If you are willing to get it working – who won’t! – then follow the complete guide provided at DroidForums.
