  1. Android Reverse Tethering (Use Your DSL to connect to internet on your phone)

    - Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 SP1
    - Net Framework 3.o
    - Rooted Android Phone

    Tested by users:
    - Samsung Galaxy Y
    - Galaxy Mini
    - Desire HD
    - Desire Z

    Tethering is the ability to surf on your pc using the 3g of your phone
    Reverse tethering is the opposite : surf on your phone using the ADSL of your PC.

    Before starting the tool;
    - Ensure you have debugging enabled on your phone :
    - Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging > Turn On
    - Ensure you have root access AND SuperUser application installed.
    - Change the superuser settings (Menu -> Preferences -> Notifications part) :
    - Uncheck "Notifications" label to display "Do not show notification when an app is granted Su Permissions"

    Android Tool;
    - The AndroidTool.exe is the windows part
    - The low level communication tool (ADB) is included in the zip file.
    - AndroidTool will try to find ADB in c:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools\adb.exe
    - If not found he will use the provided one.

    The first time you use the program:
    -If you want to use another version of ADB, clik "config" and in the first tab enter the path to the ADB
    - Select the DNS server to use in the right list. On complex system, some dns can be detected.

    Start reverse tethering;
    - usb click “Connect”.
    - If it's the first time you use the program, This will install the latest android package and the dependencies (busybox and redsocks).
    - The SuperUser process may ask you to allow “Usb tunnel”
    - If the android process crash after receiving superuser rights, close the windows program and start again.
    - The android interface (first tab) will show connections forwarded to windows.
    - Others tabs are just for debugging (give information about system route tables and connections). Not yet finished.

    Take Note:
    - Not yet tested by me. Make sure you have CWM to make sure just incase your current custom ROM crashes.
    - Start your browser
    - Google chrome will complain that no connection is available. Don’t care. That work.
    - Firefox , opera and dolphin don’t have problem with that !!!
    - The current version of the application can’t forward low level ICMP packet (PING).
    - From Android Os point of vue, there is no internet connection.

    Market :
    - The search market work, but due to the same connection problem, it’s not possible to download. I hope Google will fix the market.

    Other apps :
    - The system detect automatically ports like http (80), https (443) , Market (5228) . UDP ports like DNS also work.
    - You don't need to add static ports in the windows program (config / ports).

    Tested under :
    - Tested under more than 20 android model. Thanks for your feedback :)
