I got it installed and setup. I start tethering and my laptop can see it and connect, but I can't reach any websites. Explorer just sits there saying "detecting proxies".
EDIT: Problem solved. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ht=wifi+tether

I suggest SimpleROOT OTA but hey .... who am I?
unrEVOked does not unlock NAND so even though right now you may think all you want to do is run WiFi tether, what if in 2 weeks you want access to the /system directory to remove bloatware like nascar or NFL. unrEVOked will not allow you to do that, it's a simple sticky root.
If you encounter any issues with either root method please take those to their respective threads as those guys will be much more helpful than I am with regards to the new simple root ways. I'm an ADB guy

Wireless tether works great on my froyo Evo, with download speeds in the 600Kbps range. The only real issue is that I am getting 4G 3000Kbps speeds on my phone that are not transferring over to any of my tethered devices. Does anyone have a similiar issue?
Edit: I am running pre .7 and it was this way on both a stock rooted and damge control rom

Hope this helps.

I'm with ya man, understand completely. I was kind of hoping for more people chiming in and saying that's an issue for me, not for me etc, but yes i will put that on the google site. It does seem to me that i got it working once, and got 4g speeds but not since froyo.

For some reason I keep having problems keeping my wireless tether working. I rooted via command lines and placing folders in SD card, not full root (no nand) wireless tether stopped working. So I went to unrevoked 3, ran wireless tether for a while the it started giving me problems. Then I did the simple root with nand. When I did that my superuser permissions (#) app disappeared. Then I tried to use wireless tether and get the following message "Your phone is in an unknown state please reboot and try again" and before anyone says reboot I have done that a half dozen times already.

Thought I would share this. (I do have a rooted Unrevoked EVO for the record).
After dealing with such slow 3g speeds on tether using 2.2 reaching speeds up to 128k or worse, today I decided to do a restore that I had made from ROMmanager before 2.2 update. After the restore was complete, I bounced back to 2.1 and the results were amazing on how fast the Tether speed instantly jumped back up, for me this is a huge indicator that 2.2 had made a small mess of things.
I say this only because I love the free tether program. So, if you're not a big 2.2 fan and want you fast tether back, restore the backup that you made prior to upgrading to 2.2 and you should be good to go.

those are my 4g speeds. as far as root -- i did it the old fashioned way and i did it before the 1.47 update. and i am not doing anything fancy when i tether, but it is worth noting the ROM i am running and i linked to it in my first post. try it out after you get full root and nand. you'll like it.

OK I figured out what the deal is with my 3G speeds at 4G. Its the damn ipad's speedtest.net app. Its simply wrong. I hook up my netbook and get 3 MBps down and 1 up. I use speedtestx on ipad and get 1.3 down or so which is better. I cannot believe how much time I spent trying to get 4G when it was the $^#% ipad program

Lets try this here. sorry for posting in wrong forum earlier. I used the simple root method for rooting, and successfully rooted. The wireless tether is not working though. When i open the app it tells me "your phone is currently in an unknown state-please reboot" Which I have done but keep getting the same error message. What gives?
