    Ok so over the weekend I decided to root my Charge and after going through the steps on youtube for gingerbread ([EXP] Root Droid Charge Froyo and Gingerbread - YouTube) I had success.

    I found a apk file for a wifi tether and got it up and running, however I was receiving a SU binary update out of date and needed to update. My upload/download when the program was pretty slow too(.40kb/.23kb) so I decided to update.

    However after getting through the Fixing database, Checking busybox, current install path and downlading new binary ok, when I get to checking md5sum I get a FAIL. So I rolled back SU and downloaded barnacle. It would work the first time I start it after downloading, again crappy speeds. After I stopped and restarted it I get these errors and the wifi tether doesn't start:

    - NAT: Could not set NTU of pdpbr1: Invalid argument
    - WIFI: Could not set ad-hoc mode of eth0: Invalid argument
    - Connected to NAT
    - Running...
    - WIFI: Conld not set ssid of eth0: Invalid argument
    - Stopped unexpectedly!

    Trying to keep SU updated besides the binary I get the same errors with both programs from the start. I have root checker and am rooted correctly. What am I missing or doing wrong?

    Wifi Barnacle seems to have trouble with some ROMs. Try Open Garden Wifi Tether... let me know if this fixes your issue for future reference.

    Quoted for truth.

    It's worth mentioning that tethering is considered theft of service and the site owner has made it clear that he won't allow discussion of theft on the site that he owns.
