Root New guy needs help.

I have a Droid X and paid to have it rooted when I bought and everything worked great Wireless Tether my main use. A self proclaimed droid expert at work grabbed my phone and said hey look you need to update and did so thus un-rooting my phone. I installed Z4 perma rooted my phone. The problem is that now I can not get wireless ththering to work. It turn on runs but I have an error message in notifications that says wireless ac- disabled. I unrooted my phone and uninstalled z4 and wireless tether. Any help would be greatly appreciated I cant live without my wireless tether. I did use search with no luck.
 
I get the same error. It just says that my kernel doesn't support access control. You should still be able to tether without it. You could try deleting root permissions for wireless tether by opening the superuser app in the app drawer and removing wireless tether from the list. After that, start up the tether app again and it should ask you for root permissions again. Just make sure you hit "allow". You will probably get the error still, just hit "ok" and then press the screen to start tethering.

Thanks Griff I will give it a try.

Tried with no luck I get the KERNELL error. Looks like I need to install a rom that is supported. Ill be getting on craigs to find a pro rooter so I can get tethering again. Ive searched all night for NOOB friendly instructions on installing a compatible rom with no luck.
