Default New Wifi Tether (integrated Charge profile)

Just wanted to inform everyone that there is a new version of Wifi Tether that has native support for our Charge. This is not my work, I simply wanted to share this update with everyone!

Version 3.1 Beta 14

http://code.google.com/p/android-wif...downloads/list

Edit: Unchecking "WiFi-driver reload" yields me the best results...everything else is on auto.

Very interesting... Have you checked the DL speeds--are you getting 3G or 4G speed?

I tested this out yesterday. Works fine. I didn't do a speed test but it connected and ran smooth with the charge setting. The only downside is that wifi would not work until a reboot after turning it off.

I used it and didn't have that problem. Did you uncheck the setting mentioned in OP? Also this is the way I installed it: uninstall previous version (I also wipe data with Titanium), reboot, install new version and setup way listed in OP, start and stop wifi tether, reboot again. Whether coincidence or not, thats how I did it and I can start and stop at will. Hope it helps for you.

DONATE TO ME
They've released this version on the Play Store as well. I just tested it and it works wonderfully, as long as you uncheck the Wifi driver reload option. As an above posted mentioned, I did have to reboot my phone after I installed to get it to work correctly. I also cleared my old Wifi Tether settings from Superuser and let it create new ones.
My HTC Rezound Development:
CounterShrike (Heavily modified CM9 - Aroma Installer) - PAC-Man (CM10/AOKP/Paranoid Android hybrid) - Ermahgerd Kernel (ICS/JB AOSP kernel)

My smartphone history: iPhone (Retired) - iPhone 3G (Retired) - iPhone 3GS (Retired) - Samsung Droid Charge (Retired) - HTC Rezound (Dev phone) - Samsung Galaxy Note II (Current)

All of my work is open source: My Github
Donations are never expected, but always appreciated.

Interesting indeed... I will have to Speed Test from my tethered PC later today to confirm 4G speeds. The project description still says "3G" without mention of 4G...
