Default Working Wireless Tether for Rooted Aria

Thanks to Harald Mueller for staying with this. A new version has been posted that fixes wireless tether on the Aria here:

It requires the patch described here:

I did not test with WEP encryption, and would not be surprised if it did not work, but mac filtering should work just fine.

Edit: Infrastructure mode and not ad-hoc mode now works with liberated_aria_R003. Encryption is also confirmed working.
I use this version with R003: wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre8.apk
And I use this bin extracted and placed into a folder called android.tether in the root of the sdcard :

Note: The folder name MUST be exactly android.tether - and as all things Linux, it is case sensitive.

Default Connecting to the Internet with Ubuntu...

I used the following instructions to set up an ad hoc network connection in Ubuntu 10.04 which enabled an Internet connection from the phone (you need to enable the wifi and 3g connections on the phone, of course.)

The source is "ubuntugeek" and the title is "creating-an-ad-hoc-host-with-ubuntu"

The download speeds was 3.0 Mbps which was remarkable (it was the middle of the night when I ran the test).

I have not tested the "range" of the connection and will try connectivity in Win7 tomorrow. Could use an unlimited data plan!
