    How do I uninstall Wired Tether? Not showing up in apps. Please help a brother :)

    I'm aware of the FCs when opening Wired Tether, so I wanted to reinstall it, but when I go to remove the app, it's not listed. I see Wireless, but not Wired.
    I've downloaded the latest wired tether and placed the apk in the root of my sd card. I tried to use Astro to install this one, but it recognized my preinstalled wired tether and only gave me the option to uninstall. When I tried to uninstall, I get "uninstall not successful". How can I fix this? Thanks, and your help is much appreciated.

    It's probably installed as a system/app and needs to be deleted via Root Explorer or Terminal Emulator

    Do you have either of these ?

    Root Explorer to the rescue! I was able to delete the original .apk and reinstall. Works beautifully now. Thanks again for your effort!

    Well I went to use Wired Tether last night and I kept getting FCs, so back to square one. I'm aware it's a common issue with this rom but if anyone has a solution meanwhile, please let me/us know.

    I uninstalled/reinstalled and now it seems to be working. I was doing some electrical work in the house, cutting power to my cable modem, so I wanted to use my desktop. Since it doesn't have a wireless card, the wired tether would've been great. All is well for now though! Thanks
