If you want to perform tethering with the help of apps, you could try to use the most popular tether app like FoxFi that allows you to activate WiFi Tether without root access. Sadly, the FoxFi WiFi tether also does not work with this phone, just internet sharing via USB and Bluetooth and USB that can function properly.
