    I wanted to find out if wireless tethering is completely gone? I took a two month break from rotting my D1 as I received a warranty replacement and took my sweet time re-rooting. I know VZ was not pleased so they took down the apps off the store but I was hoping the root community would have a work around?

    I've been running SS since I rooted my phone last July and I have to say I love it!!

    However, when I upgraded from 5.2 to 5.3 my wireless tether stopped working, giving me an error - something about wpa failed blah blah.

    When I rolled back to 5.2 the issue was gone and wireless tether worked like a charm.

    My question is, has anyone else had this issue and, more importantly, is it resolved in 5.4?

    Any help would be much appreciated. And Chevy, thanks so much for all you do for us!!

    The WEP protection mode doesn't work for me with 5.4. This is my first SS ROM, and I love it, but I can't get WEP to work when I wireless tether. Hold true for both Barnacle (which is what I always used in the past), and for Wireless Tether which was included in the 5.4 build.

    I had to change the encryption setup method setting to get tether to work without errors, but no WEP functionality (no padlock icon on machines I tether to the Droid).

    OK - I have no way to actually test if tethering is working since my D1 is not activated - however - I start tethering, and I get no errors - are you actually getting errors? 'Show Log' shows nothing wrong ...

    This is the same error I got.

    5.2 worked fine, the error came in 5.3, I haven't tried 5.4 yet...

    I found the same thing. I disable WEP and simply lock other users out with by turning access control on. This lets you only accept a connection from specific MAC addresses.

    It is not high security, but will keep the casual user off your phone....

    P.S. Be thankful, Verizon has blocked Wireless tether on most phones.....

    Here is your fix, enter in terminal (or adb shell):

    chmod 777 /data/local/tmp

    No need to reboot - just stop and start tether - should work now!

    Worked for me with the included Wireless Tether, THANKS! (Though I used Root Explorer rather than terminal to change the permissions).

    I went into Wireless Tether's settings and put the "Encryption setup method" back to the default, which is "Auto" and everything works like it's supposed to, including WEP.

    (I am having a little trouble with Barnacle still, but I'm on the road and probably won't have time to troubleshoot why. I prefer Wireless Tether now that I've used it; my laptop connects much faster and more reliably than it did with Barnacle.)

    Keep up the OUTSTANDING work, and thanks for the great support.
