I am not sure how i screwed this up but...
I installed ultimate droid V8 with Nandroid last night, played arround a while, and then tried the wifi tethering app. Everything worked good and my laptop connected fine, went online, then shut the app off.
I then reaised i had no data connection anymore. The 3g symbol was showing at the top of the screen that i was transmitting but not receiving. When i restarted the 3g went completely away and all i have now is bars. No data connection at all.
I even reverted back to my stock installation from the backup.
Figured maybe it was an outage, but here i am 8 hours later. same situation.
I could really use some help on this one. thanks.
