    Does wifi tether work yet? I had it on my droid and I need it to tether to my iPad! If it doesn't work yet then I will wait since that is pretty much the only app I want right now that requires rooting.

    Using DiegoMejia's method, I can confirm that WiFi tether does indeed work. In a word, "Awesome!"
