    Titanium Back up, and Roam Control. What else is there for a rooted NS4G? I don't have any roms yet, though I think I flashed Clockwork off Rom Manager.

    I tried flashing CyanogenMod off rom manager but it came back with the logo and a yellow exclamation point. What else to do now?

    Um, yeah, I'm rooted. I just said that up above.

    What does root explorer do? I have Astro file manager on my phone which serves most of everything i need it to do.

    Flash a custom kernel with BLN (Back-Light Notification) control. Play around with over-clocking and scaling.

    Root explorer is like astro but it goes beyond and let's you look at phone files and make changes

    Root explorer allows you to view/edit all system files, astro is just for your sd card. Root explorer is a good application if you really want to start hacking into your Android system.

    I prefer MyBackupPro over Titanium. SetCPU, BLN, and Voodoo for when you flash a kernel. That's about it

    I recommend deck's ROM. Has a lot of the extra function from CM without the extra bloat. Matr1x 5.5 cfs is a good kernel.

    I don't use ROM Manager to flash anything anymore. I stopped using it in my EVO days. It always seems to cause issues. I would use it to download the ROMs and then use root explorer to move the file and then reboot to recovery and wipe and flash manually. Everything seemed to work a lot better that way

    Why would you buy wireless tether? Did your ROM disable the tethering option on your Nexus?

    The 2.3.5 update killed the wireless tethering options.You can initiate tethering mode but no data transfer.

    He has to have a custom 2.3.5 rom to use the build in tether app, in the stock 2.3.5 does not work!

    Yes, I'm aware of that. He's asking about custom ROMs though, leading me to believe a stock ROM is not in his future

    Pete Alfanso (BuglessPete) has developed a MOD to patch the wireless native tethering. Works great.

    That didn't work for me. I ended up getting the wireless tether app and it works perfectly.

    First you'll need to flash recovery. You can use ROM Manager, at the top it will say flash Clockworkmod recovery. Once you've done that you'll be ready to start flashing ROMs. You can download ROMs from ROM manager or find some over at xda. Here's a nice how to on how to use ROM manager and Clockworkmod recovery http://forums.androidcentral.com/thu...rbolt.html.ots written for the Thunderbolt but it's the same concept. Just make sure you make a backup before flashing anything and always do a full wipe when flashing a fresh ROM.

    You don't need a custom rom, only a custom kernel to tether. It seems the the authentication to see if you're paying for the tethering occurs in the kernel.

    Long story short just wipe cache and dalvik cache, and flash Netarchy nexus, matr1x or another kernel of your choice.

    Though I'd personally recommend flashing a custom rom and kernel. For a beginner, you may way to check out Oxygen 2.2.1. Also make sure you get BLN for notification light and voodoo to make the sound out of headphones 100x crisper and better.

    Oh and make sure you nandroid back up.

    alright cool, thanks guys. Slowly learning how to do this.

    I am slightly stumped though. When i download a rom or the tether fix, it asks me to backup current rom, wipe cache, and wipe dalvek cache in rom manager, what do i do then? It brings me to a screen where i have to use volume power to reload bootloader, reboot, recovery, etc.

    That's where I get lost on, i chose recovery but it brings me back to that same screen. I tried the XDA link but it brings me back to AC

    Have you flashed the latest clockwork recovery? It's the first option when you load Rom Manager.

    What happens when you use the reboot into recovery option through Rom Manager?

    I personally don't use Rom Manager for flashing, I only use it to keep my ClockworkMod Recovery up to date and a quick way to reboot into recovery without having to manually shut down the device and push the right buttons to get into recovery on a reboot.

    it goes to that screen i mentioned where i have to use the volume button to choose an option like recovery, revoot, reload bootloader, etc. Hitting recovery from that screen brings me back to that same screen.

    Try flashing Clockwork Recovery again in Rom Manager, make sure you chose Nexus S 4G as your phone model. I did that wrong and it causes a similar issue to what you're describing.
