 The chief advantage of HoRNDIS over other tethering solutions is that it uses the a first-class supported feature in the phone's firmware.  Other solutions either take over the phone's Wi-Fi stack without the Android operating system's knowledge, or create an emulation IP stack in userspace on the phone; in many cases, the built-in USB tethering support can be more stable, more reliable, and faster.((Of course, the downside to using a tethering solution with first-class support is that the phone itself must support USB tethering, and it may need to be explicitly permitted by your carrier.  Consult [[http://www.xda-developers.com|your nearest phone hacking forum]] for instructions on how to bypass such limitations, as needed.)) The chief advantage of HoRNDIS over other tethering solutions is that it uses the a first-class supported feature in the phone's firmware.  Other solutions either take over the phone's Wi-Fi stack without the Android operating system's knowledge, or create an emulation IP stack in userspace on the phone; in many cases, the built-in USB tethering support can be more stable, more reliable, and faster.((Of course, the downside to using a tethering solution with first-class support is that the phone itself must support USB tethering, and it may need to be explicitly permitted by your carrier.  Consult [[http://www.xda-developers.com|your nearest phone hacking forum]] for instructions on how to bypass such limitations, as needed.))
