    Okay it would help if you slowed down =) Lack of punctuation and proper grammar makes it harder to read and understand..what tethering app are you using? What rom are you using? What kernel are you using?

    just installed and updated this app, but im getting the same prompt. the heading says "No netfilter" and the text says "Sorry, but your kernel does not have the necessary features for tethering please see our FAQs page" and the link provided takes me to the same page as before, it has the solution to this problem for the nexus one, ADP g1, and donut, but it does not have the solution for the droid

    You are rooted, right? Do you have a ninja icon named Superuser in your app drawer?
