google-nexus-one-thumbJust now I shared how you can enable (wired) tethering on Nexus One, and here’s another similar tutorial to enable wireless tethering on Nexus One.

In my opinion, wireless tethering is always easier and better to set up than wired tethering as you don’t have to keep your phone connected with a USB cable.

How to Enable Wireless Tethering in Nexus One

Follow the simple steps below to enable wireless tethering on Nexus One.

Disclaimer: Perform the following steps on your own risk and we’re not to be held responsible if anything goes wrong with your phone.

Remember: And like always, perform a Nandroid backup before whatever you attempt to do with your phone.

1. First, you will have to unlock the bootloader, and then root your Nexus One for full file system access on Android 2.1 (if you haven’t already). Following guides might help you with them:

2. Download Nexus One Addon 0.1 now and flash it over the existing firmware. Don’t wipe the data partition!

3. Now download Wireless Tether for Root Users (for Nexus One) and install it on your Nexus One.

This app is still in experimental phase and you might experience lots of bugs. I’d recommend you report back to the developer so he could fix them for the future releases of Wireless Tether.
