Talking Free WIFI tether works !!!!now with infrastructure mode.

OK this is confirmed to work I am using it now follow this link.http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=696520
Now a couple of things to be aware of to do the adb for windows the command is adb-windows.
you must close down any programs accessing your phone to do the adb commands otherwise it says your sd card is in read only.
in the setup for the wifi program itself under menu program make sure if you have controlled access turned on that you allow your computer to connect otherwise you can join but windows says no internet access.
Stable version of the free wireless tether 2_0_2 this version is like pre5 but supports full architecture mode. I will have to post later can't upload from my phone. Ok sorry for the delay but this is the infrastructure version of the free wifi router ap this is for rooted phones only.
Attached Files
File Type: apk wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre1.apk (350.8 KB, 541 views) Click for barcode!

I can also confirm it works AWESOME

Yes, this version of WiFi Tether WORKS!!!!! Awesome.. on my crappy 3G connection and only 2 bars I still managed to get 1.02 mbs.. in our small town no doubt.

AS far as rooting.. I used the Unrevoked version.. worked great, but you need to do this.

Make sure you goto applications and allow non-market applications.

download a file manager, (do a search on marketplace).

download the unrevoked .apk and then put it in a direction on your sd card

run your file manager to your sd card (after you unplug from computer), and then highlight the unrevoked.apk If you file manager brings up a "open with" or "open as" or "complete action using", scroll down to Package installer. Takes about 30 seconds.

Then I would reboot.. copy the wireless tether to your directory on your sd card, use your file manager to browse to the directory and install it.

When you run it, it asks if you want to grant "superuser access", just click yes.

you can then hit the button to start tether, and may ask for superuser access and make sure you put a check mark on remember this.

when you disconnect, it will also bring up the question on superuser access. make sure you remember it.

It will then work flawlessly with the EVO.!!!! GREAT!
