    Going back to Froyo due to tether issues

    I spent most of last week researching and getting rooted GB on my DX only to discover wireless tether (3.0 yellow icon) also launches the stock hotspot app and directs me to the verizon page. I've downloaded the TBH patch, but honestly I'm hesitant to use it since from what I've read it works via the stock app to tether.

    Given the main reason I root is to tether, I'm thinking of sbfing back to froyo due to the apparent increased monitoring of tethering unless someone out there knows another option I'm missing? I rarely make it to the 2gb mark on my phone, but I'd rather not deal with it until a better solution comes along. I liked Gb for the short time I was on it. Any issues with reverting back to Froyo when GB is being pushed out?

    I am rooted on tbh. .596 gb and have not had any trouble with wireless tether. I rooted using andysapppack I will try to find the post and link it.

    Edit. Can't. Figure out how yo post a link from my phone. The thread is titled "A very easy guide to rooting"

    That's amazing then, if you rooted the OTA GB. I haven't heard of anyone being able to.

    Just a thought can you freeze 3g hotshot app with titanium backup, with out disabling the tether functions?
    Just looked in ti back up, some how I currently do not have 3g mobile hotspot installed, the application is shown but I appears that it is from a previous installation. The app is listed near the bottom, but has line through it.

    I still haven't sbf'd back yet. I heard you can freeze the status bar and it will not launch the hot spot app when you launch tether. I tested and it still did not work and when you unfreeze the status bar it didn't automatically relaunch. Kind of a pain. It would b e nice of I could freeze the hot spot app and it not direct me to the verizon page.

    I don't see it, no. I'm using a free trail of a root explorer that can freeze apps as a test. Maybe Titanium would work better or see it.

    You can't freeze the mobile hotpot app. Its built into GB and doesn't show up in the system files. Unfortunately, I wish it was like Froyo...
