    I just rooted my droid today, and wanted to overclock it. I know I have to find a kernel to do that, but I also was interested in Wifi Tethering, but is this only possible on a 2.2 ROM + Kernel?

    I have no custom ROMs installed yet, and just wanted to find a basic Kernel that I could overclock + wifi tether with. I have the ESE81 build.

    Thanks

    You can download barnacle and tether without changing the kernel or ROM - all you need is root.

    OR you can change just the kernel and run android-wifi-tether and overclock.

    ROM is optional, but any of them should work fine for both tether and overclocking

    You need to have a netfiltered Kernel with that application.

    Since forever?

    Are you SURE you are using a stock kernel? Did you install a ROM of ANY kind, including the so-called "stock" roms? they often have a kernel with them.

    barnacle should work without a replacement kernel, however

    Yeah when I added root access to 2.1, I needed to change the kernel to get wifi tethering to work. Maybe when you flash a "stock 2.1 rom," the kernel is changed. I'm using a LV chevy kernel 1.1 Ghz. Works great.

    2.2 is not needed for wifi tether

    Ive been wifi tethering since I rooted my D1 running 2.0.1 back in January.

    You do not have to have 2.2 to have wifi tethering. Just a kernel module (for rooted devices) or app (non-rooted devices) is needed to wifi tether.
