    I used Matlock's thread above and it was flawless. Definitely hit that up.

    Well now your rooted tethering is free, although I've heard that you can tether for free even if your not rooted.

    I go back and forth between CM6.1 with Snapturbo 7.6 OCed to 1.19mhz, and Myn's 2.2 with Kings#11 kernal. Both are really fast. It's either asop or sense?
     
  6. No you don't. Once rooted, you can use your stock ROM to run the Wireless Tether app from the Marketplace. Myn's ROM does include unlocking the Sprint HotSpot feature on the Evo, if that is how you want to do it.

    titanium backup backs up all your apps and settings, it is kinda nice when going from rom to rom, but when changing roms restore apps and data only. restoring settings can cause a lot of fcs. tb also can freeze bloatware and any apps you dont want.

    Its not totally needed. Its preference I guess. It does all your backing up including data for apps I believe. I personally don't use it, insted I just use app brain to sync apps and gmail to sync contacts. Like I said its all preference. I dont really have a need to back anything else up.

    Titanium Back up is suggested for a few reasons.

    1.) You can make a Complete back up of your phone. So that when/ if you decide you want to fiddle with Roms/ Kernels and something messes up that you have a back up of it all that you can flash back to.

    2.) You can remove bloatware from the phone. This is nice to do because it frees up so much Sprint crap that you may not have ever used. It gives a good amount of space back to the phone as well.

    Edit: Beaten to the punch on this one...

    Is Titanium back up (DONATE VERSION) the only app that will freeze apps?

    Yup! As long as your rooted you are good to flash away!! Just remember make a nandroid first, just so you have something to fall back on incase something goes wrong! And make sure you wide data, cache and dalvik before you flash! Trust me once you flash your first rom its a no brainer after that! Have fun!

    I agree with everything wake says, especially about nandroids, and I would add one additional note of caution:

    Welcome to the addiction, say goodbye to your family and free time. :cool:

    I believe that Kernal #10 is the stock kernal. I use Kings#11 Kernal to overclock. Here is the link [KERNEL] [2.6.32.24] [HAVS] [BFS] [BFQ] KiNgxKernel #11/#11 "Con is an Artist" - xda-developers just boot into recovery and flash it like you would flash a rom.
    *Note* Do a nandroid backup before flashing a kernal, incase something goes wrong or if you don't like it.

    I use SetCPU to over and underclock. Here is my setup.
    Charging/Full- Max-1.19ghz, Min- 998mhz, set on performance
    Screen Off- Max- 384mhz, Min- 245mhz set on conservative priority 75
