Is it true you cant use wireless tethering on 2.1?
No it is not.
As long as you are rooted, and have a kernal that supports it (which is basically every overclocked kernal out there), you can run it.
2.1 stock over-the-air can NOT run wireless tether.
Actually stock 2.1 can be used to tether.
I believe the question was for wireless tether, and that cannot be done stock.
Yeah, I didn't realize what section I was in before I posted...just reading active topics.
Depends on your definition of "stock"...
A completely stock un-rooted phone can tether using PDAnet or similar (wired or bluetooth, wired requires a specific client)
A stock ROOTED phone (some would consider a rooted phone to no longer be "stock") can tether using barnacle for bluetooth or wifi tethering.
A rooted 2.1-based phone with a custom kernel can tether using android-wifi-tether for bluetooth or wifi tethering.
A rooted phone with one of a few specific custom roms can do wired tethering that does not require a specific client (RDIS).
