    Rooted Droid Pro with GB: Wi-fi tethering?

    Has anybody been able to get Wi-fi tethering working after upgrading to Gingerbread?

    I ROOT'd with the TBH app, and historically, I've used the following: android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting

    (which worked perfectly fine on Froyo)

    But it doesn't appear to be working with G-bread...


    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Not sure what you experienced with GB, but when I tried to tether after loading the rooted GB, I was directed to the webpage telling me that I need to be subscribed to the $20 hotspot in order to tether....at that point my Pro was basically "locked down" and couldn't do anything with it until I did a battery pull...

    This apparently is the norm for anyone trying to tether on Gingerbread...GB evidently will not allow for any rooted tethering using wireless tether...

    with all of the custom ROMs available on other phones, I'm sure some dev has discovered a way around this for GB-based ROMs, but unfortunately with little development going on with the Droid Pro, I'm not sure if we'll see a workaround...

    I'm on rooted GB and was directed to VZW page. When I had CM7 which I believe is GB based, Wifi Tether worked just fine and didn't direct me to VZW page. Hmm.....

    Did you do the Gingerbread OTA update and then root? Or did you use the TBH app?

    I used the TBH app and never got the Verizon page. However, my wireless tether app does not work.

    Once CM7 becomes a little more usable, I'm just gonna go that route, but until then, I may go back to Froyo just so I can get wifi tether...

    I'll give CM7 a try once farther along if that is the case then...I had seen comments on other forums for other devices with the same Gingerbread tethering problem...hoping devs have found a way around this...

    bummer dude. If you need to go back your going to need to get the 3.8.7 SBF Image and flash your phone with RSDLite. That's what I did. Tethering is way too important to me to lose it. It keeps me from having to pay for internet stuck at airport for work. I travel 30 some odd weeks out of the year. Verizon can suck my balls if they expect me to pay an extra free for something that should be free...
