    Hey,

    Got the new phone and am loving it. Currently I have unlocked and rooted the phone. I would love to get some wifi tethering going on. I tried the app "wifi tether 3.1 beta 7" and it does not seem to work. Failed setting ad-hoc mode, setting essid and setting channel. The rest worked. I am guessing the app is not ICS ready. Anyone have any alternatives?

    Thanks.

    have you tried the wifi tethering 2 final?

    not the 3.x beta?

    the 3.x beta has never worked for me on any android, and the version 2 has worked flawlessly for me on all android

    i dont have a nexus though

    Same errors. I wonder if it is an ICS thing.

    well that sucks

    you just answered my question whether i should wait or not... wait it is

    my 2 most important apps

    1) wifi tether free
    2) touchdown exchange

    just loaded the cm7 mod for thunderbolt. unbelievably good.

    might have to also wait for cm9 for nexus

    So I did some more experimenting. Switching the profile to a Samsung Galaxy s 2 clears up all the errors but one -activating wifi interface - FAILED

    Any suggestions?

    I got the same thing on the beta app... only the one failure. It is probably the hardware difference in the two, and likely a relatively easy fix.
