HoRNDIS - A Android USB Tethering driver

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After countless tries to get USB tethering with my android phone working I came across this:


HoRNDIS: a usb tethering driver for OS X


It comes across with several advantages:


* No extra software required on the phone

* No extra app required on the computer

* Support for PPTP VPNs

* Supports OS X versions from 10.6.8 upwards (tested by me on 10.8.2)

* Inherently more secure than WiFi connection, and more stable too

* Best of all, it comes free of charge =)


Usage is simple:


1. Download installer and run it

2. Reboot

3. Connect Android phone via USB Cable

4. Enable USB Tethering in phone setting

5. Profit =)
