I get an error saying Unable to start tether. Iam using fresh 2.1.
make sure usb debugging is on. its in settings>applications>development
I am getting the same error. Made sure Debugging is turned on. Even tried re-flashing.
also make sure you didnt update. use version 1.6 of wireless tether
Correct, using 1.6. Still unable to connect.
Just talked to my buddy. He has the same problem. Any ideas anyone?
No dice. Ver 1.60
hmmm im at a loss, try removing all your superuser permissions and try re alloying it to use root access, im able to get the same error if i block wireless tether from root accesses
Seems like the root apps don't believe the phone is rooted. Any ideas with that?
I flashed another ROM (other than Fresh) and Wireless Tether works fine. What gives with the Fresh ROM I wonder?
Aloysius 2.1 - except that sometimes it freezes when turning it off. But it works when you turn it on... It's a start, right?
are you running 2.1.2? If so, did you execute the patch for this issue?
0000018: SU doesn't work / wireless tether doesn't work - MantisBT
I was having the same problem. I flashed this and it works great now.
Does anyone have a link to a list of 2.1 ROM
I mean, I download Fresh 2.1 here: Download: Fresh Rom 2.1.2 Geek For Me – Android CDMA Sprint Hero and it specifies half way down that there is a patch for the wireless tethering.
XDADeveloperWiki - CDMA Hero ROMs
i completely forgot about that patch. thanks for helping them!
How do you isntall that zip file?
I was having a problem to get wireless tether to work with rooted stock 2.1, and I followed the workaround suggested by a guy here
which is to start wireless tether and then turn off mobile network and turn it back on
rename it as update.zip and flash it just like it was a rom
I just downloaded to desktop on my computer, connected my phone/sdcard and put it into root. Install like any other rom. It takes 1 minute to do
WIFI is snappy for sure.....
Hey everyone....first post on here. Running Fresh 2.1.2 and I also installed the SU patch. But, when I try to start tethering, the SU opens, but I just get a black screen with nothing asking if I want to allow the app SU privlages and it freezes there until I get the box that asks if I want to FC or keep waiting. I have wiped dalvik and did many reboots and still same results. I was getting ready to update Tether, but from what I read, it's best to stay at version 1.60. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
Please disregard.....I realized I did not have USB debugging turned on. Works like a charm now.
