    Hi all,

    I just jumped on the root my Sprint Hero boat yesterday and am loving 2.1. I manually rooted it as the pre kitchen 0.2 tool would not do the sendkeys properly. I installed fresh-cdma-hero-2.0b2. Everything seems to be going fairly well but I have a number of questions I have not found answers to while googling and reading all day and night yesterday. Some pointers would be great...

    1) Wireless tether for remote users. I would like to use this program. I am able to get the laptop to see and connect to the phone. But the laptop cannot ping or browse out to the internet. I have security disabled (WEP) as I read that it doesnt work. I have tried it with access control on and off to no resolution. I have tried it in Windows and in OSX without any luck. Could someone tell me what the trick is? I tried with what the Fresh image came with which I think is wireless_tether_2_0-pre7.apk and I also downloaded and tried pre8.

    2) So I loaded this recovery-RA-heroc-v1.5.2 on the phone. What exactly is it and is it the latest version? I understand what the fresh image is but I dont understand this recovery image ordeal.

    3) Can I put Sprint Navigation back on it? (Yes I have Google Nav now but like the alternative).

    RA is the bootloader that starts when you power on the phone holding the home key. From here you can make/restore nandroid backups, wipe, or flash updates that are on the sdcard.

    Thank you both of you. I assume RA is made by the people that rooted the phone originally or thereafter. Was there a "stock" bootloader and if so, what is/was it called?

    Also, for anyone else reading, question #1 still stands!!!

    Thanks again..

    Ha ha he beat me to it. Honestly, I thought #1 was something that DamageControl is doing at the moment that Fresh still hasn't updated to make work, but since I don't use it I really don't know for sure.
