    Currently using BBeast 0.7.6. Have tried Sholes a few times but never gotten their wifi tether to work. Would like to give this latest a try but having always used SMupdater, what's the correct way to load this rom from the "tgz" file?

    Do the sholes installers include the 2.1 Gallery app? I can't remember and I really don't want to re-flash to find out.

    Reboot into recovery mode (hold 'x' during power on), volume down until you get to install, select rom, select 2.0.6, install.

    Yes, it always had.

    You should have the sholesmod-2.0.6.rom.tgz on the root or top level of your SD card Then boot reboot into recovery and choose Install>Install from SD card>sholesmod-2.0.6.rom.tgz. It will then run the installation and ask you if you want to delete /data or not. Then it will ask you what components you would like to install. Should be pretty simple. If i am wrong someone correct me

    Flashed 2.0.6 and so far it has been running a lot cooler than 2.0.5. I have not yet run into any problems at 1200mhz.

    Thank you both! I'm going to give 2.0.6 a look, as well as trying something different by removing wifi tether for root users after doing a nandroid backup prior to installing 2.0.6 to see if that will allow me to get wifi tether working with Sholes.

    Unfortunately the install "exited with status 14" so guess I'll just wait until SMUpdater comes out with the option to install 2.0.6. :eek:

    Good to know. 2.0.5 heats up quickly.

    2.0.6 very smooth, runs cooler than 2.0.5 about (39c), and fast.. I do miss my droid eye boot animation though.. Overall I like it. I could never go back to 3 home screens either. I run at 1000MHz.. it is fast enough. Only 42 seconds for a full boot. The first one takes a while.

    I'm diggin' the Sholes 2.0.6. Not a big diff from 2.0.5 or Bugless Beast 0.7.6, but they got the CPU temp working again in the kernel, which is nice.

    Also, it looks great w/ xeudoxus' Hero theme :D

    is a smokey place.

    Is wireless tether not working in sholes a common issue?... or is it an issue in certain ROM's?.

    Possibly kick me for missing where to find these, but where can I find the two above-mentioned themes. I have Metamorph up and running..

    They're having a team dispute.

    But the link above looks like it's still working.
