    I am trying to get my friends phone to make a wifi hotspot. I was able to get root following the instructions on this site, i then went to market and downloaded barnacle but no devices i have will find it. Is there an issue that causes this phone to not be able to do it? thanks for the help

    Not to confuse the poor boy, but k0, is this what we are using nao? Last I heard, 3.0 pre-12 was more stable than the newer versions. Is that not the case anymore?

    I haven't heard of any instability as it goes on.

    So the new one doesn't have the restart bug anymore?

    I have not tested it, but random reboots have been a problem throughout the 3.x series if you don't set it correctly.

    This is not what I was referring to. The newer versions of the app have a bug in which upon the activation and subsequent deactivation of the wifi hotspot, the app would hang up and not let you reactivate the wifi hotspot without rebooting your phone. I just tested this with the version that you recommended, and this bug is in fact still prevalent.

    Pre-12 does not have this problem, and OP: you should install that version, and set your device profile to Samsung Epic 4g in order to use the app without problems.

    What nspriggs describes is exactly what I was referring to.

    BTW nspriggs, thanks for taking the time to test the new version, and confirm the bug still present!

    OK, I got my wi-fi tether working. But how can I play online games like Duke nukem forever. Or unreal tournament. I tried unreal tournament on all 3 of my computers but none conected. I am supprised no one else is having these problems. My netflicks works good. Sucks up all the bandwith metro can dish out.

    Metro probably blocks all but HTTP, POP, IMAP, and a few others.

    I just recently reinstalled this app,and now whenever I start it, and try to tether, Superuser won't pop up asking me to grant root access. The program then fails to start tethering, and asks me if I have root access, which I do; I'm running Basix, and Root Explorer works fine.

    Any help/ideas on what I could do to remedy this?

    Edit: nevermind, this isn't my problem. I've lost root access, and don't know why. I started a new thread aboutthis.
