    ok, I did the zr4 root thing yesterday and I'm rooted. Mainly, I wanted to be able to do screen shots and for wireless tethering.

    Screenshots work fine.

    wireless tethering, not so much.

    I have Barnacle and I have wifi tether, and neither work for me. Upon searching and searching over the past 2 days, I realize I'm needing something else on a kernel or rom side but I can't figure out what I need, where to get it, or how to install it once I find what I need. Everytime I search, I find links to other links, to 3rd links which simply take me to a site to download the actual wifi-app that I already have and nothing is ever explained.

    I'm not interested in major reworking of my device (overclocking, quadrant this or that... etc), I know I'm not ready for all that just yet, I just want wireless tether to work.

    My computer (and even my wii) can 'see' wifi-tether.... I just can't get internet on my computer despite having good signal and recognizing it.

    Just a quick tutorial, make it work, sort of thing.

    Thanks

    That's weird.......I'm running a rooted D2 stock ROM and both apps work fine for me. I don't think you need anything but root to get them to work.

    Have you tweeked any of the settings to the apps?

    no I haven't.... not sure what I would need to change. Wired tether still works fine, but I haven't messed with anything else.

    Only time Barnacle gave me a hard time I fixed it by uninstalling, rebooting and the reinstalling the app.

    I too was on the quest for the missing "kernal" for awhile. Until, as I said, disabled the access setting. It has worked fine since.

    well, my access-control was checked off. I unchecked it and will try when I get home.

    The only other thing I see is the Change LAN settings...

    mine is set for the 2nd one down. Will that make a difference. There are about 10 of them, and I would hate to have to set up, retry, 10 times.

    I left LAN alone, just ensure your channels are the same on wireless & pc. I went with channel 11

    I've had similar issues

    Stock/older roms:
    Rooted
    Barnacle and others worked

    Then I bricked my phone.

    Post fix and manual update to 2.3.2 (deodex):
    Rooted
    Barnacle and wifi tether are frustrating to work
    Battery manager force close
    Super User WAS repeatedly asking me the SAME question.
