    Hey, guys. I just jumped from Fresh 1.1 to DamageControl 2.1. My favorite thing about Fresh was the dead-simple wifi tether program.

    Can anyone help me find the equivalent in DC 2.1? It really is the 'killer app'.

    Thanks!

    should be the exact same app in that page. Download one (I went with wireless_tether_1_60_htc.apk, and it seemed to work just fine), put it on your sd card and install using an app for installing apk's from your card (or push it/install it through adb),

    Ok then. That was more 'installation' than I was prepared for. Do you know of any easy guides on how to pull this off?

    Don't want to sound like a newb...

    easy guide:

    1.) Download "Apps installer" from market
    2.) Download wifi tether from internet
    3.) Put wifi tether onto your sd card
    4.) open Apps installer on your phone, select the wifi tether app, and hit "install"
    5.) when done installing wifi tether, run wifi tether

    Easy enough? lol

    Ok, I have damage control 2.1 and I have a file manager and previously had wireless tether and once I changed to damage control it wouldn't work. So, I erased it and went through the above mentioned steps and downloaded it again and its doing the exact same thing. It opens the application but when I tap to tether, it says "unable to tether, please try again later" every single time. I have rebooted several times, redownloaded several times and tried a different download as well and I cannot get it to work so I am forced to use EasyTether and plug it in to tether now, which is a pain in my ass! Can someone help me out? PLEASE!!

    I have damageless 2.07 and wireless_tether_1_60_htc.apk works great.

    Same thing happened to me when I went from Fresh to Damage Control. However, I got it to work by going to the settings in the WiFiTether app. All I did was set up a new SSID name, a new password and I enabled access control. You could also try changing the channel and see if that helps. But I assure you that it does work.
