In regards to the rooted ROM available here: Peter Alfonso
Can I assume the FRG83G ROMs don't have the crippled USB tethering present in the version Verizon rolled out last summer?
Can't say. The version of FRG83G there is the stock from Verizon that's been rooted, so it may have the same issues. At the same time, if you download Wired Tether or Wireless Tether you may be OK. Surprisingly Wireless Tether shows up in the Android Market in this version. It hasn't been suppressed like with other updates by Big Red.

The only other "issue" I have with the OEM version is the fact that every time I boot into it, I have to reflash CWM... it always overwrites it with the OEM recovery. Same with this one?
Confirmed... this version of FRG83G does not overwrite the recovery program when it is restored. CWM remains intact after every reboot. Haven't tested the tethering yet.
