    Default Rooted phone but wifi tether wont work?

    Hello, first let me say that I am fairly noob-ish when it comes to Androids...

    Now that we've got that out of the way. I am having a bit of difficulty. I have rooted my phone using some method, im not even sure. And When I did the root checker thing it said it was rooted, and I have some rooted apps on my replenish that work just fine. That being said, when I try to run the wifi tether it says something about not having kernels? Then I started it anyways and it said started with errors, and still doesnt work. What is going on? :/ Im not sure what information you might need but this is was my system info is: Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7; Android Version: 2.3.6; Build Number: GINGERBREAD.FA19

    Please help. Thanks in advance.

    What application are you using for the tethering? You can try using FoxFi or Barnacle. Those are the 2 that I've used with success. Sometimes it's not the phone, it's just the software.
