    I went from a stock 1.5 to 2.1 using the Sprint 2.1 RUU and all is well. I understand it's a dev build and as such is already root but when I trying installing android-wifi-tether (both 2.0 and 1.6) it all looks well except when I touch the icon to start and it fails. The 1.6 version did report I didn't have root.

    What do I need to do in ADB/shell to ensure the proper permissions are there for AWT? This is the last thing I want to get working and I'm happy.

    Do I need to remount the filesystem as rw? Add superuser? Not sure what's needed.

    Please help.

    Yes, this would be great to get working on the RUU. Barnacle WIFI actually starts up and runs, but there is no visible adhoc to connect to. Hope this is a possibility for the RUU.

    Here it is...

    xbrokdikdogx posted this "how to" 2nd and 3rd post from the bottom off the page. I have not tried it yet, but will let you know...

    EDIT: Can't seem to get this method to work. The SuperUser.apk does not want to come up and grant permissions. I have tried adb shell and issuing a su command to know avail.
