Default Android "Tethering": Works Great - 09-05-2009, 04:29 AM

Okay, technically I guess it's not real "tethering," but I thought I'd let all you Google Phone users know, http proxy forwarding works like a charm using Proxoid, which is available through the Android Market.

Basically, to get it working in OSX, you need to download the Android SDK. Actually, you don't need the whole thing. All you need is the adk executable located in the tools folder; I just moved it into my /usr/local/bin folder:
sudo cp Desktop/android-sdk-mac_x86-1.5_r3/tools/adb /usr/local/bin/.
Note that your path may vary depending on your version of the SDK and where you saved it.

Once that's done, you need to install Proxoid on your gPhone from the Android Market, then enable USB Debugging (Settings -> Applications -> Development).

Now, connect the phone to your hackbook via USB, open a terminal and run the following command:
adb forward tcp:8080 tcp:8080
Next, open Proxoid, and start it.

Now all that remains is configuring your network settings: open network preferences, go to Advanced, pull up the "Proxies" tab, and enable web proxy (http) using the server "localhost" and the port "8080"

With that, you should be good to go!
