    So forgive me if this has been covered, but I can't seem to find anything on this one. I recently went from Cyanogen 6.1 to 7 RC 2 on my OG Droid. I did a wipe of data/cache and did a factory reset. I'm LOVING it so far and finally have everything configured, but today I went to use the Wireless Tether app and when it starts, I get an error saying "Unable to start tethering. Is your device 'rooted'?". Obviously, I am rooted. Is this a known issue? Besides this one thing, I have had no issues, but this is a deal breaker for me and I will have to go back to 6 if I can't fix it. Anything I can do?

    THANKS!!

    It works fine on my build. You may want to go into the Super User app and clear out the stored settings for wireless tether, you may have inadvertently hit the wrong choice when it was asking if it could have root access.

    THANKS. I don't know why I didn't try this first but I uninstalled and reinstalled and now I'm good.

    I kept having problems with Wireless Tether. I ditched it for Barnacle tether and it has worked head & shoulders above what I was used to with Wireless tether. You might want to have a go at it!
