    Guys, I am currently rooted and can load ROM's, however I really dont want to loose all my contact info / exchange email etc. when installing a new ROM.. is there a way to just get the wifi tether capability on a rooted phone without installing a new ROM? or is there a way to install a new Rom and still keep all my programs and settings & phone #'s etc?

    Can I install an updated kernel on a non ROM'd phone as long as it is rooted?

    I really just want Wifi Tether...

    Any help sure would be great

    You will NEVER lose your contacts as long as you sign in to your gmail account (if you even wipe data)....

    You say your rooted, but do you have SPRecovery 0.99.3b?

    Yes I do have the 99.3b installed and have done a complete backup.

    Also, I did install the nandroid version of Bugless Beauty, and it installed fine, i just lost all programs etc.. any way around that?

    You can use MyBackup to backup your apps. It's real easy to use, but it didn't backup a couple of my apps, I had to reinstall them manually.

    Yes - don't do a nandroid install. nandroid restores will wipe all your stuff, but update.zip installs don't involve wiping any data - just app installs and such, so when you reboot, all your things will still be there (you may need to sign into google again, but your contacts and apps and such are all there)

    Yes. I recommend going with a kernel that is already packaged up as an update.zip file. adamz 1.1Ghz is a good choice - and you can use setCPU to pick a slower maximum speed if you're not comfortable overclocking. I run it at 800.
