I did get Wifi Tether working although I'm not sure what did it. I uninstalled it, reinstalled from Google Play, rebooted several times, and now it is working. All is good. :-)
In fact, the phone runs better than ever (which is what I was hoping for from the SBF back to stock).
Motorola Droid w/Steel Droid 10.8 RIP....curse you thief
Nexus One stock as temp replacement
((EDIT) I noticed after posting and reading through many many pages that the default posts per page sucked. So I set it as high as I could and looky there! Feedback and answers about v5.0 BETA on the last page! Glad to see you're working on the issue, can't wait to try it again!))
I am running v4.0 (shadow.zip) and tried installed Droid X v5.0 BETA BUILD. I get an error right away about a wrong kernel version. I am currently running kernel 188.8.131.52-geadffa3 mcbk82@il93lnxdroid08 #1
I did a quick search of the thread but didn't find an answer, did I miss it?

I have a Droid3 running Gingerbread + Mavrom 4.5
I am very interested in moving to something newer than Gingerbread...
My primary compliant for the Droid3 on Gingerbread is that the camera app is a joke with a 30second wait time to take pictures, and it usually crashes if I take 3 pictures in a row.
Is there a working / nonworking list of features for the ROM on the first page of this thread for the Droid3?
HW Video Codec playback?
The above is listed in the order of importance for me.

GPS: Yes (third party app)
Blutooth: Forget it, in my case worked for a few days then slowly went to hell, complete wipe and reinstall same story, third party apps no good either. I did however get streaming audio interesting. Also if your blu tooth is active on the phone but the ear piece is off, no audio on phone and generally tons of issues.
Camera's: Worked great love the damn app
Video: thats a catch 22 sometimes worked fine, generally just crashed.
Video Playback: Never could get it to work right.
HDMI: Wouldn't work on my phone
Notes: Contacts were a major *****, wouldn't read from the sd card, finally I had to go straighten out my G-Mail (which I never use) then once imported from there they were all duplicated, no multi select function I had to finally install a contact manager. Sometimes when answering from Blu-tooth there was randomly no audio, then a black screen, then an auto reboot. I finally decided to can the ICS idea and I couldn't get the stock rom to reinstall ICS had me effectively locked out, even using fast AP Boot. I had to break down and take the phone to a local nerd for a small beer fee it did take him over an hour to make it happen. I finally have setteled on stock rooted, bloatware removed, my honeys mug as wallpaper and all is well. Hope this helps.
When the bluetooth started dying, did audio streaming still work?
Earlier you wrote: "1) Blutooth has become scratchy and staticy, but not right away took about two days for this issue to happen"
I use my phone to track my running with GPS and to stream audio to my headphones. Music and audio feedback is pretty important for that. I can live without bluetooth for voice calls though. How was the bluetooth audio streaming during the time you had the rom? Was the scratchiness just during phone calls or did it happen while streaming music? If it happens while streaming music then it's a non-starter for me.
Moving to Mavrom 4.5 forced me to use google for my contacts so that would be ok for me.
