    Throttle hack questions

    I think I'm going to need the throttle hack, last night at my girlfriends house I tethered just long enoughto check a few concert sites was around 9 MB..according to wireless tether. I have to use my PC to install it correct?is it like a rom and ill lose all my stuff or is it more of an add on? ANY danger of putting my phone in a bootloop from it?


    3) Run DXCthrottleMod.bat-- would this be the batch file in that folder? I plug my phone in click that and let it do its thing?

    You will not have to worry about your data being "throttled" unless you use over 5gb of data in a billing cycle. Unless you are using your wireless tether for all your internet browsing you will more than likely be nowhere near that number therefore this throttle hack will do absolutely nothing for you. I have used it in the past just to see what it was about and did not use a computer, you just flash it with clockwork like you would any zip file. I no longer use it since I'm nowhere near 5gb a month and I am on my phone a lot.

    Btw if you are on Verizon the throttle hack is worthless. Version does it server side.

    It worked for me in Verizon, speed tested showed good improvement.

    Was the speed test done same place same time relatively same amount of data usage. Bottom line is how is a phone side hack going to stop a server side throttle.

    Won't repeated sessions of 9mb of.tethering or more bump me over that limit? I don't tether often but when I do it always seems to download alot..

    Not sure what limit Verizon is at but Verizon does there throttle server side. Unless your hacking the server the hack has no effect. I can guarantee the throttle hack out there is phone side not server side.

    Wouldn't all throttling take place server side regardless of carrier?

    Im not sure how accurate it was but I saw somewhereo that tmobile was phone side but if you were a phone company. And you were worried about bandwidth cost would you regulate on the phone witch could be hacked. Or would you regulate on your server ie alot harder to hack. And if it was hacked alot easier to fix
