    Whenever I go to activate the portable wifi hotspot in the phone settings the phone automatically says error. Is there a fix for this or will there be in the future? Running Kangerade 4.0.7 blueberry.

    You know what's happening with this now? That damn icon is back when I plug in via usb. Can we kill that thing forever and ever amen please? please? ;)

    **EDIT**

    My fault. I pulled a services.jar from another file and that's clearly what you patched, so...totally my fault! Sorry. that damn icon makes me insane. Dunno why, it's so small and silly but I see it and I just want to smash its face. If it had a face. :)

    My wireless tether only works with access control turned off. Otherwise I get the same scenario you described.

    Thanks for the reply... at least now I know someone else has had the same issue. I was starting to think I was going nuts.... No one would respond, and I had posted in several places trying to figure out whats going on...

    Yes, I too had the same issues with wifi tether. Got rid of the access control and it works great. You can still set up a pass phrase for security.

    Try it and see if that fixes it.

    I dont see the pointof wireless hotspot when you have wireless tether free in the market?? and with usb tether there is no need for wireless hotspot. Since it doesnt work and wireless tether is the same and does just remove hotspot, easy fix.

    Sounds to me like an issue with Pete's ROM for the wired tether issue as it is pointing you back to VZW. I've used Chevyno1's and Jrummy's most current ROMs this past weekend/wk and have had no issue with wired tethering. Just plug the device in check the box and it is ready to roll.

    I rarely is ever use wireless tether so I can say what is up with that. But if I were to guess it has something to do along the same lines of the wired tether issue. Which is a ROM problem I'd think.

    You should put what you did to fix it so others such as myself can fix our same problems, that's how forums usually works.

    Well I would love to put up What I did to make it work but I really have no idea what I did not male it work. I just started all over about 4 to 8 times from the start. When I say form Start that is all the way back to wiping the phone at least 8 times before I put the new Rom on the phone. So as you can see I have no clue what fixed it.
    Sorry that this does not help anyone.
