    Has anyone been able to get wired tether for root running successfully on Ivan's Official 2.1 ROM? It was included as one of the default apps, yet I can't get it to work on 7 Ultimate, XP Pro, or OS 10.6. I'm going to be in the car for a few hours today with a thinkpad running XP Pro, and I wanted to try out wired tether. When I plug in the phone just for charging, a new driver is entered as Android Phone and I'm fairly sure Android Dev Bridge. When I start wired tether, those devices disappear and and a USB device that cannot start or has the wrong drivers is on the bottom of the screen. When I used wired tether (internet sharing) in EE 2.0.1, all OS's would immediately set up the phone as an NIC connected to the internet with the exception of XP which needed the correct drivers. With wired tether in ivan's official, I get nothing; no driver setup screen or any connection.

    FWIW - I couldn't get wired tether working on Ivan's. I didn't try very hard as the wireless works just fine.

    Is there a difference between Barnacle, aNEtshare, or Wirelesstether? (only 3 I know of)

    I can't imagine that one can do more than another... but maybe I'm wrong

    I've only used wireless tether, and it works perfectly :)

    I thought so too but i didn't like that I couldn't change the SSID (i wanted to take credit for my co-workers free wifi access:D). It kept defaulting back to G1, or something like the.
    aNetshare worked just as good and allows me to change the SSID.
    Just wondering is Barnacle does anything special...
