    [How-To] Wi-Fi Tether AND 600MHz!

    This has been confirmed working! It also fixes some automatic brightness bugs! I've added a tutorial of how to do it, as well as all the files needed.

    Here is another "do it all" kernel. http://www.sendspace.com/file/sz98ny Please test this first and post if it works. Thanks to CKyle22

    It's recommended that you do a nandroid backup before doing this, its a good practice to get in to.
    Download these two .img's and flash_image from the following links. Or go to the bottom and download the .zip of all of them.

    Wifi kernel
    boot-new.img
    OC kernel (thanks to tasmanian_droid)
    boot.img
    Flash_Image (New mirror, mediafire was not working)
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3DKHNCD6

    Place the two .img's in your sdcard root, and flash_image in /system/bin/, which is done by first putting flash_image in your /sdcard, then doing
    Code:
    adb shell mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    adb shell cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    adb shell chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    then boot into recovery mode.

    From recovery mode, go to mount options and mount both /system and /sdcard, then run from adb
    Code:
    adb shell /system/bin/flash_image boot /sdcard/bootwifi.img
    reboot into Android, run the Wifi tether program (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...oot-users.html) once, then reboot back into recovery mode and run
    Code:
    adb shell /system/bin/flash_image boot /sdcard/boot.img
    now reboot your phone into Android, use SetCPU (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=505419 or in Market as donate version for $.99) to overclock your CPU to 600MHz, and reboot into recovery mode again, go to mount options and mount both /system and /sdcard, now execute through adb
    Code:
    adb shell /system/bin/flash_image boot /sdcard/bootwifi.img
    reboot again and you have both wifi tethering, a working wifi card, and 600MHz!!

    EDIT: I've ran benchmarks, as well as had SetCPU read the CPU freq, it's definitely running at 600MHz!! I can also scale it down to 500MHz and then back up to 600MHz, so it doesn't need to stay at 600MHz to keep this strange "glitch" applied.

    So basically the sholes boot.img has the appropriate tweak to allow 600, in addition to wifi and tethering? It should work then without needing to flash devil's img then I would imagine.

    I tried the single img, once in, SetCPU did in fact report 600, but as soon as I moved the slider back down, 550 was as high as it would go. But stats did show 600 ..
