+1 - Same problem here
I have a rooted Droid 2 Global and use a Wireless Tether for my internet connection. This works great in Win 7 but I can not get WICD in Backtrack to connect. It goes as far as obtaining an IP addy and then never goes any farther. Any ideas, I am still kind of new to Linux.
note: you need the Android SDK with platform-tools installed
How to tether your (rooted) Android via USB
Tested with CM7 rom ( rooted Nexus Hero )
connect your Android to linux box via USB
Find your external ( rmnet0 / tiwlan0 ) ipaddress:
note your rmnet0 / tiwlan0 / = public ip address
note your rmnet0 ip address
( if you are connected to the internet via wifi , subsitute tiwlan0 for rmnet0 )
on your Android:
start USB tethering
in BT4 / linux..
#ifconfig usb0 up
set wired interface to usb0
set DNS1 to your rmnet0 ipaddress
When I tether to my g1 I just run:
Substitute usbX for whichever your phone is set as.Code:dhclient usb0
Try running 'dhclient usb0', your phone may be set as a different id though

Use wired tether, works much better, and really, if you're using BackTrack, do you really want to be announcing your presence with a new "hotspot" in the area??
Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
