    Hi, I tried to search but couldn't find any info on how to get wireless tether working using a mac with os x on it. All the guides online have instructions for windows and i can't make sense of the gobblity gook.

    Thank you for your time.

    Turn on Aiport, turn on WIFI on the phone. refresh until you see AndroidTether in airport.

    If it's not working make sure that it works on another computer, ipod touch etc to ensure its working.

    Cincybearcatfan's 12 no 6 step program to fixing any problem with a Mac!

    Step 1: Close your mac.

    Step 2: Unplug the power source from your mac.

    Step 3: Gather everything associated with your mac and put it in a box.

    Step 4: Place your mac and cord in the box mentioned in step 3.

    Step 5: Sufficiently soak the box and contents in kerosene, gasoline or any other highly flammable liquid as to guarantee it catches fire and stay on fire until the contents are consumed by the fire.

    Step 6: Light a match and toss it in the box. Enjoy! :D

    Ok trolls :p

    Just confirmed my coworkers Snow Leopard-running Intel iMac will connect and use WirelessTether running on my phone (from a good 40+ feet away with walls in between :D)

    I haven't had any trouble with mine working.

    Not sure if it is still needed but I had to put a folder on my SD card with a .bin file in it. Do you have that?
