OK, so fiddling around I found that I could get the tether to give internet access only if I disabled Access Control. Before this rom, I was able to use the tether with it enabled. Not a big deal. Just figured I'd mention it for those who are having issues.
Also got setcpu installed...and well....im going to do some tests to see if going at 550 mhz creates noticeably less heat while tethering.
Thanks again for the great work!
(Oh...any chance...you could install a hack to take that damn shutter sound off the camera? =) )
