Ok Revised answer, yes it does but not sure how to use it. Must be a feature included in the leak that I was not aware of..... :)

I had problems with wifi teather as well, seems the older version doesnt work on this ROM, so what i did was update to the mewer 3.X version and enabled the "routing fix" in the settings, and then it worked again. Upgrading also had the nice feature that theres now a widget to turn it off and on that i just put on one of my screens when i need it (put mine right next to the juice defender widget so i can keep data on and hotspot instantly).
WiFi tether is an included feature. No need for 3rd party apps

awesome rom! have you ever considered making a de-sensed version?
Not interested in a desensed version. ThunderStick Bareback is pretty well desensed. MR4 mainly boasts sense 3 as the main reason for using it. I believe there is a Desensed version already done on one of the other forums if not here.

Update posted with tons of extra goodies...
Be aware it will wipe data so make a backup before hand.
Dont restore system app data though or a lot of the changes will not take affect.

All the mods for this ROM have been done using APKs straight from the latest MR4 release. A lot of the mods posted for the MR4 leak may not work with this ROM since all the mods done in this ROM have been done by me and may have used different methods to get the same things done.

If you are flashing mods from other forums, and then experience bugs. Blame it on the MOD you applied. If you want a mod done, let me know I would be happy to give it a try.
The only mod that wont ever make it to a ThunderStick ROM is the GPS reticle being removed. This icon is an indication that your 911 service is working properly and will direct you to the correct 911 dispatch given your location. If this indicator is not displayed you do not know if it is working, and this presents an entire host of problems for people when in need. I am sure most of you are capable of implimenting this modification your self anyway, google it. Sense mods are basically the same for all devices and versions of sense so when googling, "GPS Reticle Removal Status Bar Sense" you should find what you need.

So would the mods here http://www.igottadro...et/allmods.html (such as the wake on volume-disable) work?
Yes that mod will work.

A lot of the mods posted on android mod market are compatible with ROM's based off of the 2.11.605.X series releases. That particular one should be pretty universal though for any ThunderBolt Sense ROM.

Thanks for the info. Is there a wipe-all-mods zip? Or do I have to re-flash the ROM in order to remove the mods I put on from other forums? *hangs head in shame*

Replace the updater-script in the TSFB_MECHA_RLS7_SIGNED.zip file and the same location it is located int he attatchment below.

Then it will no longer wipe data during install.

Then re-flash the ROM with the zip file you just modified.

Profit...

Does updating through the ROM Manager update feature also wipe everything?

Thanks,

DZ

Yup, after you press the download button it will warn you of this as well. A work around the wipe is to make a backup then only restore the data partition. This may or may not work, but it is a theoretical solution.
the wipe takes place so changes to the launcher and MMS app take place. With out wiping data the launcher changes wont happen and the MMS app may default back to other max size MMS options.

Thank you for the reply. I see the tab and can get to quick settings. But I can't make it my default pull down screen...it reverts back to the notifications screen no matter what. In other sense roms, there's an option to set it as the "default screen when there are no notifications", but I have found it yet on this rom.
That is not a standard feature for sense, it is something someone added. Sorry not in this Rom as of now.

How do I root to get this rom? I'm a newbie to rooting HTC devices. I can root Motorola devices like none other.
