What kind of ice cream? paddle pop? magnum or bucket? Calm urself and wait.........
U hav try da guide of da angelictears blog? Try first, and forget to mention, if its a new fone, somehow, sometimes it cannot jump directly from 2.1 factory rom to 2.3 custom, check ur modem rev on download mode, and gav it here, if still cannot, revert back to 2.1, upgrade using sutlr with phantom rom using sutlr, then using cm 7.0.2 stable mod, or memory battery fix.nbo, still using sutlr, enter da rom and put cm 7.1.0 zip and update it using cwm (green mode). then update it using this rom zip, also dont forget to clear dalvik and cache before updating, after update, reboot recovery, change da cwm color (orange mode) and update da kernel, dont use da latest, try #37 first.
Bout da wifi, da problem lies on how to flash, if u flash in improper manner, it will goes like that. and take note that tethering will never work with 2.6.32 kernel, coz its 2.2 froyo kernel. gingerbread kernel is 2.6.35, if u find a stable one, post here.
Try checking on ur zip in da server, is it still intact or is it been modified. Rare case like this really interest me.

if da wifi still intact with da same problem, if its in stock factory rom, go return it back, its a false alarm, or failure on gadget, take da fone, and throw it on da salesperson head
take a new one and test it first in front him before leaving.
I've checked my mediafire account files and it seems that all are in correct order, even the md5 match. Seems like either the internal memory block of it's phone are somewhat corrupted or incorrect flash steps. To winkie, try to follow as what terry suggest. If all fails, try to revert back to stock 2.1 and return the phone to the dealer, and get a new unit.
Also terry, I've tested the 188.8.131.52-EA and all I can say that this is my fav kernel so far. No reboots, no hang ups, wifi stay connected even screen off (which is useful for me)and tethering works flawlessly. Ofcourse there are several flaw, such as no OC stability, limited clock option (which I think OC would work ok with 748 or lower clock speed) and somewhat a little bad at memory management but won't slow the phone down.
It seems that they have updated the source with some patch, although there are no compiled kernel of that patch available to download, which we can compiled it ourself.
I was thinking on making this a default kernel for future release, but I'll wait for more better 2.6.35.x kernel later on.
