    can someone help me with installing Wireless Tether for Root?

    Im going off of this

    NexusOneKernelUpdate - android-wifi-tether - Kernel update instructions for Nexus One. - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I have both files on my SD card, but have to follow the bottom 'user' way. I understand the flash part, but now that I have to do the complicated way I don't understand the command prompt stuff

    Those instructions are how to install a KERNEL not the Wireless Tether.

    Simply download the correct Wifi-Tether for Android 2.0+ which is a APK file.

    Then use a program like Astro File Manager, Root Manager, etc, to install the apk file.

    Simple as that.

    When I search to find this program I come up with that link at XDA. It is a program that is flash zip through bootlogger or whatever that other thing is called... it is super easy to do if I didn't have the 'user' version, so I don't understand how to do it through abd. I would love to just install an .apk if you know of one? i believe they are all removed from the market tho and must be found elsewhere

    I am writing this while teathered to test it out. I guess it works!

    I'm having a lot of trouble with this - PLEASE HELP.

    BACKGROUND:

    I rooted yesterday, installed Cyanogen ROM, and overclocked.
    (somewhere in the process I might have upgraded the kernel - can't be too sure.)

    WIFI-TETHER EXPERIENCE:

    First, I downloaded the wireless-tether apk file, put it on my sd card, and installed it with Astro. Doesn't work, says my kernel does not support it or something.

    So I'm trying to update my kernet according to this page:

    NexusOneKernelUpdate - android-wifi-tether - Kernel update instructions for Nexus One. - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Tried first method - userdebug / eng build. Failed, indicated my nexus is not that build.

    Tried second method - user build. I got up to Step 10 when I got an error, so as instructed, I stopped.


    What can I do now?

    I don't understand why so many wireless tether guides do not mention the need to update your kernel.

    Is that not necessary for everyone and some can just install the .apk and that's it?

    Is it because I'm using cyanogen?

    I'm using Mod version CyanogenMod-5.0.6-N1, Kernel version 2.6.29.6-cyanogenmod

    Thanks for any help in advance!

    Cyanogen's stock kernel should have supported that as well as a ton other kernels out there.

    for kernel:
    download whatever kernel
    put on SD card
    boot into recovery (volume down button)
    nandroid
    "install from SD Card"
    reboot phone

    using ROM Manager:
    click download ROM and choose kmob or pershoot
    click the option to backup and confirm. done

    then install the apk with Astro. make sure the apk is on the root of the sd card
