Well, when I installed a stock version of the release, the sideloading checkbox was disabled. So we have some oddness here.
I think you can get around the tethering plan issue by setting up a new custom APN without the new "proxy" settings pointing to AT&T's proxy. You can't just delete the setting in the provided default APN because it's locked.
We'll see how long that little hack lasts - they could require that proxy setting for data to work at all in the future, and that would kill free tethering on even unbranded firmware.
So far, I am not impressed with this official 2.2.2 AT&T ROM release at all. It gets us nothing and the branding tricks run even deeper.
I've been following your kernel work. Nice work there.
