i am really loving this rom. i was on ssx for a long time and loved it but the one thing that it did not have with it is the battery life so i started looking around and tried shuji. for a rom that was prized for its battery life i did not see any improvement what so ever. so i was always wanting to try liquid but just kept putting it off for another day. bad idea this rom is amazing and has given me the best battery life of all cm7 and gingerbread roms. the only draw back is that the kernel does not support wifi tether of any sort that i have found. i was wondering if any of you brilliant people out there knew if i could just flash a different kernel over this rom and solve that problem. thanks. sorry pretty knew at all this stuff.

my understanding is that you cannot flash a kernal because of the locked bootloader. however, if you need to tether give easytether a try. i recall that working on liquid. its a usb/bluetooth tether but it gets the job done.

That is correct

I am on Liquid and Wireless tether works great as well as Barnacle. Easy tether is also an option, but if you want wireless Liquid supports it.

im using wifi tether v 2.0.7 and its been working fine as well, if yours is not working you should try re-flashing. its my understanding that wifi tether will work with any source based rom...

I am on Liquid 2.6 and using this with access control disabled. Works perfectly for me.
