    Just upgraded from DInc to X this week. Rooted - all that fun stuff. Had AP tethering on DInc, I'm still getting adHoc with X even with version 2.0.5-pre 7. Is anyone else getting AP tethering or do we need to wait for the froyo kernal? I had originally thought any phone with the VZW wifi hotspot app had AP tethering capabilities in its kernal already.

    you need froyo. all the 2.0.5 pre7 does is use the 3G hotspot function of the 2.2 software. atleast that's what it looked like it was doing on my Dinc. could be different for the X.
