    I finally managed to root my incredible but i cannot get the tethering to work. i've seen all the other threads and tried numerous ways of installing it and nothing has worked. my computer recognizes that it is connected but it is not getting any network access, any ideas?????

    In wireless tether do you get a notification that your computer has connected?

    1. Check to see if you have the tether app on your sd card. If there install it and then go to open.
    (If you dont have it go here: YouTube - Droid Incredible Root in 10mins and download the file or files cant remember which one i grabbed. You will find the app in one of those files. Drop it onto your sd card and install)
    2. Make sure you are not connected to some other wifi spot or if you use an ethernet cable unplug it from your computer.
    3. Enable the phone to wifi tether and then just search for it under where you would search for other wifi spots. Your phone will pop up after a few seconds and click it. Your phone should tell you that something is attempting to use it as a hot spot and give it the ok.
