    I just rooted my force two days ago mainly because i wanted to tether but no app is broadcasting a signal to be picked up. Please help. I have no clue why none of my devices sees the wireless signal when scanning. I tried about these different apps and had no luck.

    i have tried all the settings and every tehter app on the market with the same result. nothing else detects my phone. not my tablet not laptop not media players. in wifi thether for root users it give you the option to show log. that is where i saw the mss clamping error. i assume that same error is causing all the apps to not work.

    It may have been one of the previous apps that was installed causing it to not work properly leaving remnants of something in your system. Did you ever try wiping your phone.
    Anyway glad it is up and running. :)

    No. The is a cwm stock nandroid. You just place it on your cwm backup folder then boot recovery and restore it as if it were a backup that you made. It takes the phone back to total stock but you keep root.

    Yes it will make the phone bare stock with root . But i was able to use titanium backup so it was basically just like flashing a new rom.
