You should update to Tweaked 2.2 and use rhcp's or bag's kernel, tweakstock is pretty old... that being said, it should still work.

Make sure you really do have root by going into the Superuser app and doing an update binary, if the it says the current binary is "legacy" you do not have full root. If it does say that, download Superuser 3.0.7-efghi from androidsu and flash it in CWM Recovery after mounting /system and it should be good to go.

Also, I would just use FoxFi, simple to use and doesn't even require root!

I moved this to the All Things Root section so that you may get a better answer to your question.
also have you tried other wireless tether apps?
i hear foxfi works wonders.

I can personally recommend FoxFi on the Stratosphere. It works just great.

So the WiFi is able to scan and connect to networks just fine before I root it, and now, afterwards it is unable to even see other networks. This happened on the other Stratoshpere I had also and this is the replacement one (cracked the screen). Is there anyway to get that functionality back?
