    I mainly want to root my droid to be able to use the(wireless) wifi teathering. Can someone recommend a good rom which will support this feature.
    Thanks so much. ;)

    I had the same quest but struggled with finding a WiFi tether option that would work with Access Control (MAC filtering) and WEP. I finally found the right combination of kernal and program build that would work the way I wanted it to. Here is a link to the thread:

    http://androidforums.com/droid-all-things-root/216509-wifi-tether-various-kernels.html

    Please note that sucessful wifi tethering is more associated with the kernal than the ROM. Also, the build for WiFi Tethering (2.0.5 pre-7) is not the one that you will download from the Market as it is experimental. You must download from the website and manually install this build.

    Hope this helps.

    it is not in the ROM per se, it is just in rooting itself as then you could download Wireless Tether. but as hikersc said, some kernels - not really ROMS - can affect this (though some ROMS include their own kernels). but being rooted alone will essentially open up this ability.

    Thanks for the response. So if I understand correctly, I can just perform root, and then install Wireless Tether and not have to do a custom rom at this time. I guess my question is, will the stock FRG22D support this? Looks like your response says yes :) Thanks again. Can't hurt anything trying.

    Yes, I have WiFi Tether working well with the stock (FRG22D) ROM. As I mentioned, I did have trouble getting all the wireless tether features working with the stock kernal so I flashed a 1000 Mhz version 1.6 Slayher kernel so that I could utilize the Access Control and WEP features. I also used the experimental WiFi Tether build that I have mentioned above.

    there are also existing threads that talk about what kernels are confirmed to work with wifi tether IF you want to OC with a different kernel.
