    So I take it neither one of those methods worked... simple root ota should do the trick and get you rooted.

    EDIT: or you can update to 3.26 and then use unrevoked. Either way.

    Yea you can wifi tether with any of the above root methods including unrevoked. Overclocking depends on the kernal you flash. And you use titanium to freeze system apps. Read the thread unrevoked for dummies + extras. The OP has a ton of good info and step by step instructions. Check it out, its a few posts down from this one!

    Have you ever heard of this Rooting method call Simple Root? Since you are still on 2.1 this will bee the easiest way to root and get all that stuff you want.

    For further on how to,Google it or simply read the stickies.
