    I swear, it's working for me. I know when I tried this months ago, it didn't. On a whim, since installing this ROM, I installed the Spanish keyboard, rebooted the phone and presto! No message to call ATT, it now allows me to tether. I just used it to tether my Macbook pro with no issues. I have a 2gb plan and do NOT have tethering on that plan.

    That is just...so weird. There are two Spanish packs, did you install the Spanish (Spain)one? Not the Spanish (Mexico) one?

    Install the Spanish Keyboard. Reboot the phone. Try turning on tethering. That's the exact message I got every time until I did this.
    Just to confirm... are you using the French ROM or the Euro Dev ROM? I'm using Euro Dev...

    juan, I just downloaded the folders from skydrive links in your first post. the NCS file is 151mb, but the 821 and 820 folders contain files of 65kb and 55kb total. Is that correct?

    edit, got stuck at the ffu files.
    "Sorry, there was a problem downloading this file from SkyDrive. Please try again."
    maybe it was still uploading? working now.
    cheers

    I'm using the French one actually! I downloaded it before your ATT guide went up.

    If someone else wants to try the French rom and try to get tethering working using the Spanish keyboard trick, I'd be interested to see the result.

    yeah, that would be cool if that is the case. if I decide to flash I will certainly try the French rom. I just wish there was a sure way to go back to an ATT rom if I needed to. So far nobody has posted a 100% confirmation for that ?

    Juan I have a question , are you really sure (100%) that if i want i can go back to the AT&T Rom by installing the Rogers Pre Portico and then My AT&T Rom cause i've been searching the web for that and all the threads said that once you change your AT&T Rom to any other (Rogers, Europe Dev. etc) you can't go back to AT&T Rom.

    I saw a thread on XDA that says you can go From Europe rm 821 to Rogers rm 820 and viceversa but not back from Rogers or from Europe Dev Rom to AT&T Rom.
    [FLASH] How to use NCS to change from RM-820 to RM-821 and vice versa - xda-developers.

    If you have the link where it says that you can and you can point me in that direction it will be of great help for me and others that are holding before trying the GDR2 Amber now. Thank you very much.
    Once you flash rm-821 into your at&t rm-820 phone you will not be able to go back to AT&T no matter what you do with it.

    After thinking about it and evaluating the pros and cons I flashed my phone two days ago. I have all the 1020 apps.( Nokia Pro cam, Nokia Video trimmer and Nokia Video upload). I'm running the Euro Dev Rom not the French one. When i install the spanish mexican keyboard tethering worked for a while but then i check yesterday and i stopped working and gives the message to call 611. I don't see L(LTE) symbol but i do see H and H+. The speeds are better than before. I use to get 5 to 6 download and now i get 8 to 9 . For being on Net10 which is the reason i only see H or H+ i think those speeds are more than great. This is wayyyy better than AT&T stock Rom. As long as i get the OTA updates i don't care and don't regret flashing the Rom and if not i'm sure there is going to be the possibility of updating manually by flashing. Here are some screenshots of my phone.

    Hey, I've got a question... Step 2. "along with its required Microsoft files. Ctrl+C and Ctrl + V the links into your browser, download and install them"

    Which "required MS files" are you talking about here? And what links are you referring to, that we are copying and pasting?

    Now this is interesting. Tethering was working last night, but now when I attempt to use it, I get a message that says it isn't available. However, I reboot the phone and tada, it works again.

    When you try to install Nokia Care Suite, sometimes it tells you that you need to install Microsoft runtimes in order to install NCS. If you're able to install NCS, don't worry about it.

    Hmm. Does it keep working if you remove the Spain keyboard? I might have to reflash to the French ROM :/

    That's TimeMe app but is the side load version. I side load it with a student developer account cause the regular marketplace app doesn't update every minute and the time falls back. In the marketplace app page in the info there are the instructions to go to the website of the developer of the app where he explains how to side load it

    For me, it does not. I just removed the keyboard, rebooted and tethering no longer worked. I added it again, rebooted and tethering no longer works. Looks like i screwed myself.

    I remove the Mexican and tried with the Spain and doesn't work either. I'm on the euro dev rom but as I said the first day it worked with the Mexican and then it stopped working.What rom you are using now Juan? Did you change from the euro dev to the French rom ?
