    I had bugless beast for a while and a buddy convinced me to switch over to Cyanogen mod. It's pretty nice, no complaints, alot of nice features, stable, etc. There is one thing that's driving me up the wall with it. Since i switched to it Wireless Tether refuses to work.

    I've tried all the different kernels i could get my hands on yet, when i try to run wifi tether i get the following errors:

    Starting Access-point... FAILED

    Activating Wifi Interface... FAILED

    WTF? Nobody else seems to be having this issue either, i've searched a decent amount over the past week with no luck, and i've tried all the standard fixes. Try a reboot, uninstall & reinstall, try a different kernel, i even tried using Barnacle instead and had similiar issues.

    Has anyone else had this problem, and how was it resolved? Thanks.

    I just tried it, and it's working for me. Not sure what to tell you, other than to ask if you've given wireless tether SuperUser rights?

    Yes, super user permissions granted. I may just back everything up and try a fresh install of CM...

    I bit the bullet & did a triple data wipe then clean installed cyanogen and that seems to have corrected the issue.
