    Bionic Data Throttle Hack

    I'm sure it has already been done but I wasn't able to find it posted on any forums. So...i'm going to post how to remove the bandwidth throttle on the bionic. I hit 6gb's last month and my download speeds went from almost 200kbs to around 3kbs. First time I've had it happen since I got the bionic but regardless it's annoying. After removing the throttle it instantly jumped right back up. Here goes:

    1. download 'root file explorer'
    2.locate the folder 'data' then inside, the 'system' folder
    3.Inside the system folder, locate the 'throttle' folder
    4.Long press the 'throttle' folder and hit permissions
    5.Make sure 'read' and 'execute' boxes are checked in the 'owner' row
    6.Once your done, click inside the 'throttle' folder and delete both files labeled 'temp' and '1226839461'
    7.Reboot and enjoy your throttle free bionic

    Nice work. Haven't been throttled down yet but will keep this in mind since I come close to 6gb every month.

    No, actually I was using PDA net and a torrent downloader to download a file. The torrent downloader gives your speed. I was averaging around 200kbs and almost as soon as I hit 6gb it dropped to 3kbs. Took me a week to get sick of it and finally fix it. I don't have 4g in my area yet. I hear they are not throttling 4g but I don't know if that's true. Where I live I can't even get internet because i'm way out in the sticks. So, unfortunately i'm stuck using 3g for now.

    Quick question, the numbered file that you say to delete, is the numbers different with each phone? Because mine are not the same. Thanks for the imput!

    I did this for a friends bionic as well and the numbered directory was the same. To the first question about the numbered file not being the same, do you notice your data being throttled? If you do, copy the numbered file and temp file to your SD card and delete them in the directory. If anything goes wrong you can always bring them back over from your SD card. To the second question, the complete directory is /data/system/throttle/. Make sure you do them in that order, not /data/data/system. That's where I kept getting lost as there will be no throttle folder in the second system directory.
