    OK. I've rooted my Incredible. Do su, the update.zip or the Superuser.apk need to stay on the SD card? Just trying to wipe the blood off the walls so to speak. :)

    Yeah I don't think android.tether needs to be in the sd card after installation.

    wifitether wont work without that the android.tether folder with the bin file. If you delete the folder the program will still launch but your computer wont be able to successfully pass traffic to your device.

    If you got it to work, and tested by connecting your computer to your incredible (not just launch the wifitether app) please tell me what build you used ex: wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre2.apk
