    I looked for similair issues here and on alldroid.org but didnt see anything, but sorry if there already is a thread and i missed it.

    I rooted last night, flashed and made recovery. Played with wifi tether everything seems well with no problems, Except but screen brightness doesnt change anymore. its stuck in one setting. tried rebooting, tried battery pull, tried using the power control widget and went to the settings. No auto brightness is NOT enabled...

    Is this common after root ? any ides.. ?

    Has NOTHING to do with being rooted. It has everything to do with either the ROM you install, or other "fixes". Often the fixes break other stuff. My guess is, in your case, when you enabled the WiFi tether app you broke the brightness control. If you go back a read the thread where you learned how to fix/install the WiFi tether, I'd bet there's a comment about it breaking the brightness control. They usually go hand-in-hand.

    I did have the WiFi tether enables on mine, then reverted back to the previous recovery image because I use the brightness control more. Besides, USB tether is good enough for now.
