    I currently have wifi-tether pre3 installed on my droid. I want to upgrade it to the latest version (pre7) but I am unable to uninstall it on my device. I go into setting/applications/manage applications/ and it's not listed there. When I open up the wifi-tether pre7 through astro, it gives me the option to uninstall (though no upgrade option), but when I hit uninstall it errors out saying it was unable to. Where can I find the wifi-tether pre3 apk so that I can uninstall it? Or is there another way I can install the newest pre7 version.

    I'm currently running DroidMod if it makes any difference.

    Thanks

    Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Make sure its all downloads in the drop down. I believe you want the eclair one (most common in Droid ROMs)

    I know exactly which one to download... I have it on my phone already.

    Did you even read what I was asking? I want to know how to uninstall the version I currently have so that I can upgrade to the latest version...

    Sounds like it was part of the rom you installed? Contact the dev and ask how to uninstall it.

    If you have Astro File Manager you can use it's search function. Root Explorer has a search function too.

    If it's pre installed on the ROM it's probably in the /system/app directory, you'll need to get to that to remove it. ADB shell or some other root explorer should work.

    I found it in /system/app. Thanks thatguychuck!

    I installed the phone after rooting it, and then I installed droidmod over that. That's why I guess it was messed up.

    On another note, does anyone know why the newest version says that my kernel does not support access control? The previous version I had worked with access control just fine...

    Technically, all the versions are "experimental." So it doesn't surprise me. Last time I fiddled with the tether I went from pre3 to pre4, and it wouldn't load correctly on my 2.0.1 ROM. So I went back to the pre 3. I read in another thread, that somebody with a 2.1.0 ROM used the pre 5 and it worked correctly, so who knows. The "latest" version doesn't always play well. Maybe try the pre 5 and see what the results are there.
