This is for any 2.2 based Rom

If you have a 2.1 Rom then you need superuser and barnacle

Never heard of superuser and barnacle, but I have Blade working as a modem with my laptop.

The Finnish Saunalahti version of Blade came with 2.1 and ZTE Join Me- software.

First change phone to usb debugging mode.

In JoinMe go to Internet-SnapDialer-Others- and change apn-settings according to your operator settings.

hello, wondering if anyone can help me with the USB tether,

I have the tether program running on my phone (cyanogen 7.1.0) and the tether program running on my computer (win 7x64) but all i seem to get is multiple "CHECKING PHONE STATUS" in the box

if i check the connection on my puter it reports unable to resolve DNS or something to that effect,

can anyone make any suggestions?
