Tethering: re-enable user/password functionality
Is this a quiet acknowledgment that they broke it?
Because user/pass was never disabled in the menu?!
For the first time after 1.7.33 I can manage to tether my SonyErricsson P1i to A5A.
I say manage because I have found the way it works but it mostly doesn't.
This is the way it works for me. BT must be off before I begin. Then I turn on BT, wait until the BT light is on (PowerBar wiget)
Then I press the tether button and it doesn't fade out for a short time like it should when it's pressed. But still 20-25sec later I get a tether has failed message. Then I press the tether button again, this time it fades out like it should and it tethers!!!
If i later turn off tethering without turning off BT it will not tether again until i repeat the whole procedure.
Also if I turn off BT while it's tethered it doesn't turn off the tether symbol on the statusbar and the tether light on the wiget.
Killing BT turned off tethering up until this FW, which is quite logical
Hopefully this report will help somebody else, and help Archos fix it so it works every time like in the god old days (1.7.33 and before).
Just to add, paid apps appeared in Market, I have never rooted my A5A.
