As far as i can tell, the internet sharing driver installed by HTC Sync is required in order to have it recognized by windows.

This is quite annoying as HTC Sync is hardly the type of app you can roll out onto a PC temporarily if you need to give it an internet connection.

So i decided to intercept the driver files copied to %temp% by the HTC Sync installer.
Now you can simply load up the HTC driver easily (keep it on your sd card and use the Disk Drive function), and then uninstall it when you're finished. Much cleaner and without any unneeded extras.

Hope this is useful to someone.

That will work fine until they roll out Froyo and you get USB tethering built in as well as the wifi hotspot for up to 8 devices.

Soon! (Unless you root your phones now and load Froyo).

Froyo is already available for some regions. Mine (from Clove, so a UK model) was updated yesterday OTA

Is this driver no longer required? Or a different android one?
