As far as tethering goes, I think it would be pretty difficult for them to figure out that you're tethering without actually spying on your data.
I actually know a few people who's service been terminated cause of using the wifi hacks/tether with out paying for it so use at your own risk!

Did you flash a CM10 compatible kernel before trying to flash the ROM?

Kies doesn't need to be running at the same time. Does Odin recognize your phone when you plug it in before flashing anything (ie does the left window have ID COM or somesuch in it?)

yes it does recognized. I get ID COM 4. I also get the yellow bar. When I click start, it start the process but it hang on "zImage" (see my post above).

I have tried a different version of agat but no luck.

Guyphs, I just rooted my sgs2 using your guide. Your guide and links are right on. I made a nandroid after root but before SU, so I think I have a stock backup. Thanks again

Thanks it worked !! I was playing around with this at my job earlier on today and like other couldn't get Kies to see my phone. So when I came home the first thing I did was go to Samsung's sight and download the USB Drivers first, than the rest of the install went like butter. Below is the link if others would like there listed here ...

Samsung

Not sure -- you can just d/l it from the play store though.

You have to flash SU through the custom recovery in order to get root.

You have to choose install zip from sd card - the sd card you saved the zip to - and install it that way.

Ok guyphs i understand thats its supposed to be on the sd card BUTT it not. having said that i have done a couple of less involved phone systems (tracfones). In your post you said their was 4 things you would need , one of them was ,download the superuser flashable zip file . OK i did that and the rest of the steps (downloads) in this section of your post. Now as i said before kies did not work, tried several times, did not work. So i downloaded a driver from samsung, another person said it worked for them. guyphs that was a mouth full 1st question will the samsung driver be ok ,or do i need the kies version. 2nd question, In your post ( the four things you needed) that was the first time you talked about SU the next time you talked adout it it was supposed to be on my sd card already, So how does it get their, is it supposed to upload on my phone . do you have to unzip the file on the pc or what exactly. Prob. just me as I am fairly new to this ,but after doing the other phones I was feeling lucky about this phone, Please try to make something out of this for me . Now i have tried to get root twice and have downloaded the custom recovery and AGAT kernal twice ,and have went back to stock boost twice .but no superuser. STUCK with stock bummer

Don't unzip the SU zip. Just put the whole zip file on your sd card, it's flashable through the custom reocovery. You can just download it with the phone if that is easier. Then flash the zip from the agat recovery.

Well there's an internal sd card on the phone, you can try moving it onto there. I have no idea why it won't let you move files onto your sd card. May be a drivers problem

Default Boost Mobile GS2 FI22

The system update FI22 is out... (Boost Mobile GS2)

Problems if you have FH29 rooted and want to update to FI22:

I'm running now the FH29 and tried to update it to the newest version (FI22) but that gave me an error that didn't surprise me because I'm rooted.
I did a Nandroid backup before anything....
I went back to stock and did both updates FH29 and FI22, then I rooted the phone (flashed Agat and then Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip), everything seemed ok until I realized the 3G wasn't working no matter what I tried. I flashed my Nandroid backup on top of this without results. Finally, I went back to stock again, updated to FH29, and flashed my Nandroid backup and everything is working now... (without FI22)

If anyone has a solution for this let me know, it looks like this rooting metod doesn't work for FI22, for some reason blocks the 3G and I don't know what else....

Thanks

Problems if you have FH29 rooted and want to update to FI22:

I'm running now the FH29 and tried to update it to the newest version (FI22) but that gave me an error that didn't surprise me because I'm rooted.
I did a Nandroid backup before anything....
I went back to stock and did both updates FH29 and FI22, then I rooted the phone (flashed Agat and then Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip), everything seemed ok until I realized the 3G wasn't working no matter what I tried. I flashed my Nandroid backup on top of this without results. Finally, I went back to stock again, updated to FH29, and flashed my Nandroid backup and everything is working now... (without FI22)

If anyone has a solution for this let me know, it looks like this rooting metod doesn't work for FI22, for some reason blocks the 3G and I don't know what else....

Try rebooting into download mode. If you can do that, you're probably not bricked. Flash the stock boost rom via odin then restore from nandroid.

ok last week i rooted my phone boost mobile sgs2 useing guyphs guide on this page again thanks guyphs. Now i have another problem. I since have installed titanium backup and liked it, so I installed titanium pro . Today since I had both installed on my phone i uninstalled the regular version. and reboot. Now I am stuck in boot mode, I made a nandroid before a couple of days ago at the advice of guyphs, when i installed titanium pro. I went to recovery mode , first thing i did was restore backup no luck still stuck, then i preformed a systems recovery because I have already made a backup on titanium pro. But still stuck in boot (samsung galaxy s2) is what appears on the screen .......Please help, i know someone knowes what to do. thanks in advance

If you just can't get pass the galaxy s screen i would reinstall the system again (guyphs guide) and you should install both titanium, one is the program itself and the other one is just an unlock key.

yes I have come to that conclusion about both titanium installs. I have just reinstalled guyphs guide still the same but i do have a yellow triangle on boot screen. what now . i dont think my phone is bricked. I understand that titanium is pretty much running my phone so when i uninstalled it thats what went wrong, I even went online on my pc and installed titanium with no luck. should i run the guide again(guyphs guide) Thanks in advance

The yellow triangle means that you installed a no official rom or system restore... You will be able to clear it out by installing "triangle away" from the market. BTW unistalling titanium should have nothing to do with the system not booting, so that's weird.
AND Titanium does Not run your or any phone.
What do you mean you installed titanium From your PC?
You reinstalled the "guide" again and isn't working?

Ok... I don't undestand you.. Titanium backup is not a pc program, what do you mean with you went to titanium in your pc?
Ok I think you should download the stock system and flash it in odin (pc). If you don't have the file google boost mobile GS2 FG31... (over 500mb) That's the original rom that ships with the Galaxy S 2 from Boost Mobile... It will erase everything and your cell will boot like the day you bought it....
I did it to my cell too, so it works.
