    The easiest way would probably be to just flash a custom ROM such as Warm 2.2 or MikFroyo. Both of those have a hacked sprint hotspot included already.

    I don't think there is a downloadable hacked hotspot. You can download wifi tether for root and use that. It has the option to enable security also I believe though I generally use it while driving when my kids want to use their ipods online in the car so haven't tried enabling it.

    unfortunately, there is no way to get the hotspot unless you flash a custom rom. you really should looking into flashing mikfroyo 4.5. it has everything you are looking for:
    bloatware removed and a hacked sprint hotspot. also it is a very small rom and does not take up a lot of internal memoy and because of that it is extremely fast. check it out.

    i know about the hesitation on flashing different roms. i'm now totally addicted to trying something new on my phone. feel free to ask any questions you have.

    You actually can unlock the Sprint hotspot feature without flashing a custom rom that already has it unlocked. All of the ROMs that have the hotspot feature got the mod from Calkulin. You can flash this mod yourself, but I believe you need to at least have a deodexed ROM. You can get a stock ROM that is deodexed without much problem, though. Everything will still be stock, but you will simply be able to flash mods.
