    I have a razr. Im just trying to think out of the box. So if some one messes up there phone, aka me they can sbf back to something that would work. I need some one who is smarter then me with this to confirm or deni my theory. Also why won't it work.

    I don't think it would.
    Why? different phones, different hardware. Think of this: what would you think would happen if you flashed an nvidia card with the radeon rom?
    Sure both platforms are very similar, and you could mess with them and maybe get it to work, but why take a risk with a $700 device? I would not want to flash a rom on my phone without a SBF... let alone try an SBF.
    +1 for thinking out of the box, but wait a little and you may get an SBF.
    As to "why" specifically it will not work... I belong to the category of the ones "not smart enough" to answer that. I can hardly use the linux terminal.

    See this thread
    Native Bluetooth tethering works with the RAZR
    in short:
    1.- enable bt
    2.- disable wifi
    3.- enable bt in other device
    4.- pair devices -nothing will happen after this, they'll both be disconnected
    5.- this is where it gets tricky: from the other device connect to the bluetooth pan (private area network). But your other device must have PAN profile.

    I am rooted on my Razr running this wifi tether. When I start the tether, the factory loaded mobile hotspot app comes up as well saying it has detected a hotspot, but nothing is configured as far as that app goes. Just trying to make sure that this is not going to bite me in the arse later. Has anyone else dealt with this? Also, this is not my first Android nor my first venture with rooting. Thank in advance!

    The same happens in my razr; even though the mob hot spot app is frozen.
    As long as your data usage is not excessive, you should be fine. I use mine for "emergencies" only. I don't think anyone can tell how you use your data.

    If you want complete untrackability, try tethering via BT -no additional software required. Just enable BT, pair, and connect from the other device. My understanding is that this is untrackable.
