Default Tether not working...

Hey gang!

Okay, I am a little lost. I got my phone working and tethering again. I can't keep the speeds stable (Phone is Stock++/Smurfed out) and it runs everything fine. Even got the user agent switch to get me back on the net again.

However, I tried to set up my fiance's Admire. However, when I connect the Wifi (Free Easy Wifi Tether for example) it starts up, only to say there is an error and to see Log File. So I Open the file, and it says no file have been saved. I then went to check other tether programs and run into the same issue.

I have, restarted the phone. Uninstalled and reinstalled all programs. Nothing. Her phone is only rooted, nothing fancy outside of that (concerns with messing things she don't think I should be) just so she can tether and get back to school.

Is the phone running 2.3.4 or 2.3.6? You're 100% certain it's rooted?

100% sure, root checker confirmed. Ran the Onetouch again just to be sure. Run plenty of other root required app's and such with no problem.

Phone - 2.3.4 stock

If I can't get anything else to work, I will check out the Open Android

The phone does connect to wifi but upon starting wifi tether it craps out? Is that correct? If superuser is indeed installed and the phone connects to wireless access points maybe try this. It worked for me before I got OA, which has the abilities built in. Good luck!

That is the only Tethering program I use, as it works on my phone with no problem. So of course I tried that one (was well as the other one by the same company with Green Wifi bars).

Yes, SU is installed and the binaries are up to date.

Build prop edit was never an issue on either phone. Mine tethers just fine without.
