If you're using MIUI, 3rd party apps are known to break Wifi tethering for a lot of people. Use the native feature. Settings -> System -> Tethering & Portable Hotspot. Just turn it on and configure it.

Have you uninstalled the app? If not, do that, and try again. I'm not sure why it would lock up your entire phone.

You're not supposed to reinstall the app. You're supposed to uninstall it completely and try the built-in feature. If the built-in feature still doesn't work, I'd try a completely fresh install of MIUI without installing any tethering apps to see if it will work at all. I've never personally had a problem with the native MIUI tethering feature, so I'm willing to bet that having the app installed is causing your problems.

Why would you lose your phone? If you're worried about your data, back up everything with the MIUI Backup app, or if you're planning on trying other ROMs, back up your apps with Titanium Backup. Then you can do complete data wipes and then restore everything when needed.

Nothing I told you to do will hurt your phone or data if you use a backup app. It's completely normal troubleshooting to see at which point the problem occurs. If you do a compete wipe (data, cache, Dalvik cache, and if you're using Amon RA, it's a good idea to wipe boot and system also), you should be starting from a completely working state. That way, if an app is causing the problem, you'll know because tethering will work until the app is installed.

Before you go through all that trouble, though, check to see if your tethering works while the app is uninstalled. Then, you won't have to worry about your data.

FWIW, all recoveries can do this. However you NEED to re-flash your ROM otherwise... Or else your phone will just have nothing to boot from. There's also no real need to wipe boot or system unless you're re-installing the same ROM and have good reason to believe that those partitions have something which is screwing up your ROM. All ROM installation ZIPs will overwrite boot with their own boot.img unless they match already, and will format system unless it's the same wrong, and there's a script which tells it to save certain files.

Sorry for digging up an older thread as my first post, but it is after all the reason I'm posting to begin with.

I have not yet switched over to AOKP, I'm doing my home work first.
I have in the past used CM 7, and I liked it, but I had to go back to my rooted Sense ROM because I absolutely NEED a rock solid working tether app, and I did not find that in CM7. I have used the Wireless Tether app from the market in the link in an earlier post with great success. I've even found a newer version of that app, and am using it to this day.

I have to have this functionality.
It is my only home connection to the internet.

So my question is this; Does AOKP Milestone 4 have a rock solid tethering app built in? If not will I have the same issues as ChooChoo88 had with the tether app from the market on M4?

I am not sure about the kernel you are referring to. But a lot of the tether apps from the market are being shut down. Go tohttp://bit.ly/of_tether_direct open garden is a very good stable tether app.

Thank you for the response.
I was not referring to any kernel.

The built in tethering app in Cyanogenmod v7.x nightlies and even the stable build did not work consistently enough for me.
My question is to whether or not the built in tether in AOKP is more stable, and capable of maintaining a connection for extended periods of time like the "Wireless tether" app found on the market does on a rooted Sense ROM.

Allow me to answer my own question for the good of those who come after me.

I jumped in and installed AOKP's ICS. I am using the Wireless tether app included in the ROM, and I am very happy to report that it allows me to maintain a consistent connection for extended periods of time.

3G signal strength is another matter.
