Yeah if someone could just upload that one file that would be great. That way everyone won't have to download an entire Evo system dump just for one small file.

Here is the file you are all looking for. It has already been renamed and ready to copy to the SD card. Just unrar it and you should be all set.

Ok so got it working, and I am sending this from it right now. HAHAHA! Anyway, I ran into a problem, but it has been fixed. You have to have the Evo bin file to get it to work. I originally just ripped my own file off of the system in file manager and it was bust. The log showed it accessing it, but no joy. Then I saw someone post the Evo file and now works no problem.

Thanks.
HTC INTRUDER-attn1's CM6, Many thanks to all who helped.

Works like a charm!!!
This is awesome!!!
Note: I didnt mount the sdcard from recovery nor access adb shell and mkdir /sdcard/android.tether
I just used windows explorer and created new folder on sd card where I unzipped the rar file. It works regardless.
Thanks everyone, this phone be on its way to being a USB host at this point due to the talented dev team!!!!

Awesome, thank you. It works like a charm. Speed could be better, but that's probably just my network.
Been here since XDA was a device

Just wanted to say that I tried to do this a couple weeks ago when I found that fix, but it didn't work at the time. I guess they did an update to the wireless tether app, and that, along with the firmware fix, got wireless tethering working on my rooted Aria.

It's somewhat slower than I was hoping for, but it works.

-edited to add-
I enabled WEP encryption, changed the key, and it still works just fine, not that WEP really provides any sort of protection, but at least it works.
