    Wireless Tether Broken

    Hey,

    My wifi tether used to work (rooted htc incredible), however I was intrigued by the the thought of doing the Wireless N hack to mine. Wireless still worked, tethering however did not. I was smart, and made a copy of my original. It still did not work, it always gives me an error stating "Unable to start tethering. please try again".


    Last night I even re-flashed my phone back to stock, rooted it, and still I get this same error. I've tried multiple versions of wifi tether, I've also made sure that I have the directory and firmware on the sdcard as stated on their website. I can not figure this out. I don't get what happened.


    Does anyone have any idea what I can do to get this to work again? It used to work just fine. I don't care about N anymore, I went back to stock, I just want the tether to work. Regular wifi works, connects, and operates fine. It's just this tethering application.



    btw:

    I'm thinking that superuser should ask for root permissions when starting.....it does not. Superuser is there, but it has nothing listed under it. I can easily get access to su, and I have root. I don't understand what's going on here or what to do.


    Thanks for any help anyone can offer!


    Update!

    I just literally found out through searching arond that through going into adb shell manually on the computer, end executing:


    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    cd /data/data/android.tether/bin
    ./tether start 1
    When I run that straight from an adb shell on my computer, it works!!!
    I just tested with my laptop, however I can NOT stop it from the phone after doing do. A reboot of the phone physically brings me back to it not working again with the same error as before.
    I love this app and it's an asset to my work, but I need to figure out what's happening. I believe it to be a permissions error of some sort, but now sure what it is, why it's happening or what to do to fix it.

    Could I be using the wrong version of su? I *think* I'm using the larger one that says "su: access granted, couresy of www.magicanddroidapps.com" upon executing su. Could this be why it's not working? If so, what's the correct way to rectify my problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well...turns out SuperUser was messed up pretty bad.

    I think it had something to do with using the larger SU instead of the smaller one. That is the correct one in case anyone else runs into this issue.


    I did another complete downgrade, upgrade, then re-rooted, and went with the Wireless N driver upgrade, then everything went smooth! SuperUser was asking permissions and setting again as it should have, and everything is back working, including tethering!
