    i am using a smoked glass ROM on 2.0.1 droid. when i open the app everything is fine because im rooted but when i tap the wifi signal picture, it says please wait and then please check log for errors and when i do that it says

    "Config WiFi Interface...
    Error reading firmware image /system/
    ect/wifi/Fw1251r1c.bin - Aborting...
    Set property wlan.driver.status = failed -
    ok
    Failed"


    and then this one too

    "Loading wlan.ko module...
    insmod: cant open'/system/lib/
    modules/wlan.ko
    failed"


    Is there something I'm doing wrong because i think i might not have a compatible ROM or something, can you please help he out?

    P.S can you wifi tether to an ipod touch from a droid?

    Perhaps if you asked in the root forum you'd get a faster answer :rolleyes:
    Make a back up of your current rom, flash a different room and see what happens, sounds like the rom your using doesn't have the correct kernel.

    1. Why are you running such an old ROM?

    2. You need a kernal compatible with wifi tethering to use it.

    I only got into the root game recently so I can't help you on such an old ROM. There's a wide selection of kernals for all the current 2.1 based ROMs (CyanogenMod, Bugless Beast, Ultimate Droid *shudder* etc) which all support wifi tethering.

    You can only tether your Ipod Touch to your Droid if it supports ad hoc wireless connections.

    Try Barnacle (on the market). Its a wireless tether app that just needs root (no special kernels). Its worked good for me so far.
