    OK, I have managed to get all aspects of android-wireless-tether working in 2.1 with no hacks. I've even deprecated my Helper app ;) It is no longer needed. Encryption still not working, as in 2.0.1, but Access Control now is.

    This is a base 2.1 image based off Greek35T's 0.0.41. Only wireless tether has been installed, and it is ready to go! Simply login, start tether app, click start, and network should be visible. This also has the latest tether-2 script provided in this link, to which I owe great thanks for the great information:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...d-wifi-tether-wireless-tether-root-users.html

    With the new tether script the network stays visible also ...

    Grab the base nandroid rom here:

    4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download 2.1-base-wireless-tether-BCDMRS-20100107-1655.zip

    I also am working on a batch script to enable tethering in your existing roms, as I know a lot of you don't want to lose your apps/settings ... almost done with that as well and will upload soon. Will be very easy for noobs (no linux commands to enter, pretty much run a batch script in windows and answer a few questions).

    It's the 2.1 ROM with Wifi Tethering, so no. It's not an addition for 2.0.1, it's a complete upgrade to 2.1(unofficial) plus Wifi Tethering.

    By the sounds of it and the look of the file name, this is installed via Nandroid backup/restore. Follow the directions located in "how to innstall 2.1 - The easy way"

    Follow this how-to, but in step 19 substitute with the OP's attached file.

    I've got it running right now and so far so good. Thanks.

    Are there any glitches/bugs or problems with this 2.1 release? I'm wondering if it's finally worth taking the dive or if I should wait for official 2.1.

    There are a few quirks but honestly i'm sure the official will be very close, if not the exact same, as the ripped 2.1unofficial.

    The homescreen is laggy IMO but Home++ works flawlessy on mine and has replaced the stock. Though the stock has a cool 3d app drawer.

    Just curious - are you having issues with Home++ and the live wallpapers with this ROM? The lock screen gets it, but the launcher background remains the original grassy Home++ wallpaper regardless of which live wallpaper I've chosen.

    Search the forums, it's been mirrored for download.

    Live Wallpapers don't work with Home++ at all. Just a sacrifice. But i'll take a stable homescreen over some of the errors i was getting with the stock screen. It would come up blank sometimes or take forever to load the icons (if i waited). The app drawer would come up blank sometimes too. Very annoying. But when it works it's pretty cool looking.

    Live wallpapers are just a gimmick JMHO. Not all of them are interactive and the Nexus One wallpaper is blank. I can see where they can become neat eventually but i'm not sold yet.

    Ya I agree with the gimmicky-ness, but its still cool to show off. I wouldn't use it all the time as processor overhead required to constantly update the background wouldn't be worth it for daily use.

    Appreciate it Chevy.

    Love how the other guy said search but probably didn't know where to find it himself.
