Well, I don't know what open garden is...however, if you are rooted, manually download barnacle wifi or the other free wifi tether app out there, but muller, lemons and buxton. I have tried both of those as a rooted user and they worked fine.
You can't download them through the market directly because it is carrier blocked by Sprint, but I seem to think there were market apps to let you jump carrier markets so that might be one way to do it too, but manually downloading them will get you the same result in the end.
As far as the ICS, I ran both the IMM26 and now the latest IMM76D, version 4.0.4 for my phone without the rom modifications, the stock roms. Yes it is capable, people probably see different results. When I started adding all of the apps I use on a normal basis, my battery use seems to be about the same, but maybe it is a slight improvement. I can have better results yesterday, I was doing really well with the WiFi here and then got on some family skype calls and my battery dropped as you could imagine. So will find out a real world test tomorrow at work since I haven't been there yet and I use that as my rule and guide to compare. But either way, I like it a lot better, I feel a bit lost now trying the other phones here that don't have ICS on it now.
