Although Verizon has created a new wireless tether blocking method in Gingerbread, some crafty folks have managed to come up with a workaround. It has only been confirmed on the Droid X, but may also work on other devices. Here's the instructions:
- First, you’ll need to download this new Wireless Tether beta. [more info]
- Open up the app after installing, and headed into Settings.
- Under Device-Profile, search for “Motorola DroidX (CDMA)” or “Motorola Droid2″ and select it.
- Turn on Wireless Tether and connect any device you like.
If this works as advertised, then at least we have an alternative while the FCC investigates the whole issue with Verizon.
