    I just finished following the guide here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ha...ng-only-sprecovery-terminal-emulator-zip.html

    and when it gets to wifi tethering, it gives a link to a google site with 3 links. All 3 of those links appears to be invalid. It keeps saying the files aren't on the server.

    I've tried right click > save as, but it saves as a 1.4KB instead of 300K+ like its supposed to. Doesnt install either, I'm guessing its the link?

    Somebody else just had this same problem, but the downloads are working perfectly fine. I don't get it.

    Here's a direct link to the latest (pre7):

    It's like there's a Google Netsplit or something...

    I just upped a copy here for you if you really can't wait. Sorry for all the ads/spyware/whatever on the random free upload site:

    2shared - download wireless_tether_2_0-pre7.apk

    Ah, now when I install and run it, it says "No netfilter! Sorry but your kernal does not have all necessary features for running this application."

    I'm not sure what went wrong. I followed that guide step by step, but my firmware still shows 2.0.1 and Bugless Beast 1.1

    Something is goofy,
    Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Doesn't show any of the other pre apks. Edit: I'm dumb. You have to change the selection from "current downloads" to "all downloads"

    I haven't tried anything above pre 3, but it works for me. I attached the pre3 apk in this post, but you have to remove the ".zip" extension at the end after you download it from here.

    Actually, I saw from your other post that you are on a 2.1 ROM now? The pre3 might not work either. I think somebody reported that the pre 5 might be the one you need.

    Edit: Cool! No worries! I'm on a different ROM all together, but that version sounds about right.

    Ah, I'm using the latest, pre7, I think it's working. I'm on linux so I can't test it. But I know when i installed it this time, I didnt get an error. Guess I'll have to try on a windows machine, lol.

    Btw, to keep myself updated, I'd just need to keep the latest ROM? I'm pretty new to rooting with DRoid but learning pretty quick
