    Ok I've installed the tether app and then I updated to sholes 1.2 rom wich installed tether app again. Problem is I couldn't get tether to work and now wen I uninstall, its removed from app manager and the manager applications list from settings, but it remains in the app drawer and able to at least attempt to start tether. Any ideas how to completely uninstall and reinstall correctly?

    sholes 1.2 installs wifi tether as a system app

    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    rm /system/app/WifiTether.apk
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot

    lemme know if it works for you

    edit: you might not need to the sync and reboot part, i just like to do those for good measure
