A short while back, I jail broke my IPad (1st Gen) and also rooted my EVO 4G phone. I didn't know, at the time, that rooting my phone would have been enough (with the appropriate app installed, of course), but I have found other beneficial features for my IPad being jail broken.
I had downloaded and installed the 'Wireless Tethering' app, and (initially) was good to go. The first two times that I tried it, there were no issues: it worked fine. Yesterday, however, that story was given another side.
When I started the wireless tethering, all showed fine: my phone gave all proper information about the tethering being activated/on. Also, my IPad's 'Settings' window revealed that everything was as it was supposed to be. however, my IPad would NOT connect. The blue progress bar, in the destination window, would travel no more than about 5% - and become fixated right at that point. Since then, I have tried it a number of times (the latest, about an hour and a half ago), but all to no avail.
On top of this is the fact that I cannot shut down the wireless tethering, on my phone, by conventional means (depressing the 'stop tethering' virtual button). It will just vibrate, and go back to showing the 'On' state of tethering. In order to defeat this, I have to shut my phone totally down, and turn it back on.
I would REALLY like to get on the bright side of this wireless tethering matter, and hope that someone might have a 'fix' for me. In the meantime, all I can think to try would be to uninstall and reinstall the app.
