    I have wireless tether for root, using Fresh 2.3.3, and everything setup with Apps2sd (2.7).

    I'm trying to use the bluetooth version of wireless tether - but I have no idea how to make it connect with my MacBook Pro (using Snow Leopard).

    I can't find the option to connect anywhere - am I missing something? I don't see the phone in Airport or in Bluetooth - and my Hero is paired already.

    I feel like there's a simple step here that I'm missing. Wireless tether is on, but the "Down" and "Up" meters read 0.0kb each.

    How do I make it work with my laptop? What am I doing wrong here?

    Thanks!

    i dont have the answer to your question, but why make life harder on yourself by trying to use BT tether when the regular wifi tether works just fine...and the xfer rates are faster too (the bottleneck being your 3g speed only).

    Actually - you answered my question. I didn't realize you could connect through the wi-fi. I thought it was only bluetooth.

    And THAT is what I was missing.

    It's working great now! So thank you!
