    I downloaded and installed this radio, Download HTC Thunderbolt MR2 Gingerbread Radio
    I'm pretty sure it's the MR2 radio. If there is any way or app I can use to give you more info please post. Thanks.

    I also tried going into the Wireless and Network settings and clicked on 3G Mobile Hotspot and it says error as well. Is there something wrong with the WIFI radio?

    There are other versions of the WiFi app you can try maybe.
    You can check kernel in settings, about phone, software version.
    Or you could try flashing a different ROM, and see if it works then.

    I tried all the wireless tether versions and no luck. When I tried using it on the stock ROM it wouldn't work either. Also under mac address it says unavailable in my hardware settings. Is it possible it might be a hardware problem? I haven't been able to tether since I downloaded the most recent ota update and then shortly after I rooted for the first time. I also tried barnacle tether and it didn't work.

    Try this is should work if you are using the WIRELESS TETHER APP....

    1. Go to wireless tether
    2. Go to Menu
    3. Go to Settings
    4. Scroll down to WiFi - driver reload check it
    5. While still in setting scroll up to the top choose Change Device Profile
    6. Pick HTC Thunderbolt
    7. You should be good to go after that.

    This is what I had to do and I am running 3.1 - beta 2 no problems

    Good luck!

    try using Barnacle app from the market... if that doesnt' work then I cant help either bro, at least try it, its free and the best wireless tether I have seen

    after a little research, your sim card may be the issue. or the CDMA settings. I am not on your rom but i know you can toggle differnt 3g/4g combonations, at least 4 different ones.. try playing around with that too.. not like you can do anymore harm to your phone
