    Question Wireless Tether for Root Won't Connect

    I know there is a thread about using the Wireless tether, but not one for troubleshooting. The computer recognizes my phone as Android Connection. It tries to connect, but gets stuck on connecting and never actually does. Is this a problem with my App or with my computer?

    Have you been able to successfully connect any other devices with Wireless Tether? If you have access to even another phone with WiFi give it a try. Then maybe we can narrow it down to the Computer or the App.

    Good News! It worked! Wonder why they dont toss the market app and replace with this update. It worked on my evo like a charm. Thanx!

    If Wireless Tether doesnt work for you guys you can also try Barnacle Wifi Legacy, it works fine for me.
