1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I rooted successfully with z4root. I downloaded and installed wireless tether, ran it and connected my Powerbook G4 running OS 10.5.8. All looked good but when I started my Browser, I got "You are not connected to the internet". I ran Network diagnostics and the whole process stops at "Network". I then downloaded Barnacle and installed with the exact same results. I can connect my laptop to the phone, but no data flows between them. Just for kicks, I connected my desktop iMac OS 10.5.8 and that works fine. Any ideas? Tethering is the ONLY reason I rooted my phone!

    Working now... I tried renaming the SSID and password and now my PowerBook connects and transfers data. I don't know why the iMac would connect and function with the default settings and the PowerBook wouldn't but it is working now. Is Barnacle any better/worse than Wireless Tether?

    They both seem to have their problems. I personally use Wifi tether for root users. Had a few issues but it works fine now.
