Waiting for USB tethering, I use Wifi Tethering from Jolla Store.

The usability is great ... but switching commands on the multi-task screen could help. I mean one to switch on/off wifi tethering and the second to switch on/off bluetooth tethering. For the moment, I must maximize the application and use the pulley menu.

This should go to the app developer, so please input in the Store in device or get in contact with the developer.

USB tethering is possible by simply adding port forwarding rules in your Jolla's iptables.

I have covered this (with references) in my blog post "A little help with Jolla".

Thanks for the link, but USB Tethering is going to come with next update as announced. About iptables commands, I'm used creating them from fwbuilder software in my job (IT architect), so I don't feel the fix regarding Sailfish maintenance. Just few days to wait. :)
