    I'd advice using bluetooth tether with the xoom.. don't need any extra apps, and no charge from verizon.... no root needed either

I turned on the STOCK hotspot app, no patch or anything installed & he connected & did whatever just fine. I guess since it was a mobile device it thought it was just my phone, no idea. But may be something you could try.

    As for me, the only time I ever tether is when traveling.. which isn't very often. So Easytether will be fine for me, charges the phone too . It'll be interesting to see how the FCC responds to all of this though
    I was on Liberty. 7 when I tried it and had the same experience except for the no referral to verizon. Basically it killed my 3G connection and requires reboot to fix. I don't have easy tether. I'll try to find it. Have not tethered in the past. Need it occasionally for the kids itouch in the car.

    I have it installed and tether works great the rare times that I use it (so far only used it to test this workaround)
    The only problem is that i have to reboot after i turn tether off, which isn't too mush of a pain (airplane mode wasn't fixing it) hot reboot from liberty toolbox works though.
    So.... that old tether patch still works on the Gingerbread radio?

It takes a reboot to get it back to normal.
    Same thing happened to me. So... where is the "work around"
    If you're just tethering to a computer & don't really need for it to be wireless I would just use Easytether Pro. It's working without any problems for me. I'm not sure if it's still in the main market, but it's on amazons appstore.

    I have tried many things and could not get this thing to work... Frustrating.

    I am on Liberty .7, Rooted, and have been looking for a new solution for Tethering. I only use it once in a while, but when I use it, I need it!

    Any step by step directions to get it to work??

    I keep getting the Verizon Wireless page wanting me to sign up for their tethering band at $20 extra! Ummm, no.

    Idopa, yes.

    I installed it and it didn't work, then I shut off my phone and pulled the battery for over a minute and turned it back on again. Tried it and it still failed.

    I am on .596 GB, Liberty .7, and a Droid X. The only thing I did not try was the Droid 2 setting. I used the Droid X option since that is the phone I have...

    Weird... and frustrating.

Before that, all I would get is Verizon's web page over and over asking for money. None of my bookmarks would work, no android market or anything!!
    THIS!

    tried on Droid Pro...set to "DroidX" as device and was able to tether my Asus Transformer, but the data connection on my Droid Pro was hijacked....browser went to VZW mobile hotspot pay page and no other data connections would work...rebooted and now good....
