    Anybody know of a wireless tether app that works for GB 2.3? I've tried barnacle and wireless tether 2.0 and neither work

    No, look around the d2g hacks section for "radio hack". You use a piece of software called radiocomm on your computer to get passed verizon's tether block.

    Wireless tether 2.07 I think is what I'm using and it works great.

    Wireless tether 2.7 works for me also. There is a wireless tether 3.0 beta, you can try that.

    Do we also need the radio hack in conjunction with that app? I tried wifi tether 3 beta and it's not working. It's running on phone like it's working, but no wireless network shows up on laptop.

    You are downloading it on your computer correct? It will fail on your phone

    Some clarification is requested. The OP is asking for wireless tether on Gingerbread 2.3.........But am I correct that wireless tether is gone once you are on GB 2.3 even if rooted unless you do the radio hack process ?

    Thanks

    That is what I found. I upgraded to GB, rooted, and tried both the 3.0 and 2.0.7 versions of Wireless Tether, and neither one worked (I did NOT radio hack). I ended up SBF'ing back to Froyo, z4'd, and the 2.0.7 started working like a charm once again. Booo Verizon!

    Wait! How do I do that? I rooted my phone after the GB update, so is that even an option for me (having no froyo backup)? I am still nervous about flashing a ROM. Lol.
    Thinking hard about flashing the cyanogenmod 7 nightflies by revvers, ....or something like that! Lol. Got it downloaded and pretty sure I know all the steps. Just don't understand how it works for some ppl but bricks the phone for others.
