    My friend ... I don't think you are lol


    edit -Do you need root cause you want to flash ROMs or because you wanna run root apps? I have suggestions for you but they depend on how you answer this.

    This is not my first Android. I rooted my Moment and ran 2.1 for a while.

    as per the picture, you can see, I am rooted.

    Also; using RootExplorer, I was able to Delete Stocks.apk from my phone and a few other portions of bloatware.
    I'll rephrase, I removed the .apk file from /system/app
    But the program still seems to be on the phone, and working lol..

    A new version is out that makes the connection a true wap as opposed to an ad hoc network. This allows all types of devices ipods, xbox, other phones etc to connect. Check it out here WORKING: Infrastructure Mode AP! - Page 7 - xda-developers

    So I installed that one njfoses; didn't ask me for permission, and still does not work.

    I just removed some bloatware with adb shell stuff and its gone so I have no doubt again, that I am rooted... what is going on?

    So I started doing some troubleshooting on this;
    I uninstalled, reinstalled, got binary config files written or what ever.

    I realized first; hey, WIFI is turned off on my phone, so I turned it on
    Still nothing.
    Second, I realized it connected to my local WIFI, so I disconnected that
    Still nothing.
    Unable to start tethering. Please try again!

    Le sigh.

    Above is the link to the new software as a QR barcode just to make it easy for everyone. (thanks to njfoses for posting that)

    Got this installed in less then 5 minutes using urevoked on my evo! Besides the install being extremely fast including doing the root this connection blows my tethered connection from my pre away!

    tested with speedtest.net and I get 1.85 on the evo and get a pathetic .8 on my pres connection.

    Being a new user to android I am pretty darn impressed so far just wish they could figure out how to make app switching faster/easier.

    Are you clicking the link in step 3 of the tutorial? The link to wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre2.apk? I just opened firefox on my PC, had to blow the dust off, and it works. Just to be thorough i went and checked chrome again and it worked (thats twice now) and clicked it on my phone again and it worked (thats twice now).

    Skip the PC and click the link from your phone. It may be a result of firewall/config setting on your PC but i assure you, the link is 100% live.

    im having the same problems as another member had on page 6 where it didnt ask me for permission at all and the tethering is not working. I also checked to make sure i have root with the code provided and the "#" symbol is shown...

    These are the instructions i followed:
