I've reviewed the basic rooting procedures for downgrade to 2.3.3, S-OFF and installing CWM and then superuser access. My question is, will "Wifi Tether" work after this root procedure on Dinc2 or do I need to do more? Meaning do I need to install and alternate rom or kernal, or will it work with just root access?
About the root itself. Does the basic root procedure leave the phone as it was just with root access? Or will i have to reset everything up? Will original Apps etc still work?
If I need to go further than just rooting, any pointers as to what direction rom/kernal I should go that is closest to the standard HTC setup (Sense)?
Rooting should do nothing more than give you super user access to the phone's os and allow you to run things like "wifi tether" or "Barnacle" to tether. You shouldn't need to do anything else to your phone (besides making that NAND backup immediately after rooting!). Everything should still be there and working.
Good luck, and welcome!
