    Just got the 8X the other day. Tried to use Internet Sharing but got the upsell from T-Mobile.

    Any hacks to enable this on the 8X?

    Never had any problems on my Lumia 710...now I'm scared to update it to WP 7.8

    No hacks for Windows Phone 8 YET.... Watch XDA, I am sure the pros are working on it. Also to note, the 8X is on almost every carrier so if any phone is hacked first, it will be the 8X...

    I don't think WP 8 will be hacked anytime soon. If they haven't made much leeway yet, they may never. At least with an HTC phone you may see any hacks first as they aren't as secure as Nokia. Those if us with a Nokia phone wont likely ever see any type of hack.

    Too bad too. I really wanted to hack Internet Sharing also like it was so easy to do on Android. I hate the idea of having to pay the carrier $20 more a month just to tether. What a scam

    Native tethering comes standard will all LTE data plans on Rogers (except for the lowly 100mb plan). Find a better carrier that allows it if you can.

    the 8x section on XDA is basically dead. I don't contribute to any development, so I have no room to talk, but I have been waiting anxiously for a way to flash a generic ROM onto the phone to get rid of the tmobile carrier tethering restriction. Someone came by one day and said he knows how to bypass the carrier code restriction so you can flash any rom, but then he disappeared when people asked how...
