    Does anyone have it? I noticed it missing from fresh1.0.

    I still see it under wireless settings. I activated it and my laptop found it as something like "EVO B1****" (* = random numbers). It asked for a password, so I tried "00000000", and it would actually connect for a second and instantly drop.

    There should be a folder on your sdcard full of the things that are not already installed in the rom that flipz put there for you :D

    you are running fresh rom right? it should be called removed apks i believe. it has been a while since i have run his rom. if not you can pull it out of any other rom you have stored on the computer. unzip and look inside system/app

    alrighty I unzipped the 1.0.01 and found that. Its not on my phones SD card for whatever reason.

    Would it be best to just drop these in the backup folder I have on my sd card that I use Astro to backup other apps with, and install from there?

    The ROM comes with this version of Wireless Tethering installed:
    android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    As far as the Sprint hotspot, it should be on the sd card under:
    fresh-removed-apks/WiFiRouter.apk

    It can't be directly installed I don't think, instead it has to be copied over to the system app folder. If you have the android dev tools on the computer and connect via USB, this should do it:

    adb shell mount /sdcard
    adb shell mount /system
    adb shell
    cp /sdcard/fresh-removed-apks/WiFiRouter.apk /system/app

    Or I would assume Root Explorer (paid app, but there may be free app that does the same thing) would allow you to copy it to /system/app as well. But I haven't tested that. I have only used the third party wifi tether that is preinstalled on the Fresh ROM, and even that just long enough to see if it worked so haven't done much with it yet.

    Edit: There is a bug with the new ROM where the built-in wireless tether will force close, uninstalling it and then reinstalling from here fixes it.
