Im rooted but running a stock rom and would kinda like to leave it at that but still want a little better performance. I have removed some of the bloatware but dont know where to go from here. :thinking: Any and all information would be helpfull. Thanx in advance......

    First, Welcome to the forum!

    I moved your thread to the All things Root section, since your questions pertain to a rooted phone.

    Look in the market for an app called wifi tether. That will turn on your hot spot. There's another called aNetshare, but i dont think it's in the market. You'll have to search for that one.

    SetCPU is what you'll want to use for OC'ing. Do a little search and you'll find plenty of information on what are safe speeds to improve your phone's speed.

    Lol, well, I don't know about that! :)

    drunkdrumer, what method did you use for rooting your phone? (my money's on jcase's 1-click method...?).

    If you used this method, then at one point, you would have "flashed" the rootme.zip file in Amon_RA's custom recovery menu (i.e., it would have looked like figure 33 in this post: http://androidforums.com/eris-all-things-root/127861-universal-eris-root-dummies.html#post1186824).

    The above post is actually a very well document instructional that you can follow to learn about Nandroid backups (make sure you take one), flashing, wiping, etc. Be sure to carefully read it and heed its advice--the "One" that wrote it, erisuser1 (we really should call him "Neo", don't you think, Noe? :D) is a highly-respected member whose posts should be ignored at your peril.

    Read through it and see if you have more questions (it can do a much better job that I can).

    Cheers!
