How does it not work? Did you make sure to give it root permissions? What kernel are you running?
Yes I did and it comes on but won't let me connect I downloaded another version and when I try and connect to another phone it won't obtain my IP address

Kernal Version - 2.6.37.6-cyanogenmod-01493-g70877de [email protected] #1

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.
