    I think you are confusing hotspot and tethering. If you want to use USB you want to tether. Here's how you do that:

    In order for your device to be used as a modem. You can enable the USB Tethering feature. To enable this feature:
    1. Press Menu
    2. Tap Settings
    3. Tap Wireless & networks
    4. Tap Tethering & Mobile Hotspot
    5. Check the box for USB Tethering (this option is not selectable unless connected to a USB cable)
    You can tether your phone to your computer with a USB cable to share your phone's internet connection with your computer.
    • Tethering works with Windows vista, Windows 7, and Linux.
    • You can't mount your phone's SD card on your computer when USB tethered.
    • For more information, including using USB tethering with other Operating Systems, seewww.android.com/tether#usb
    You can also make your phone a wifi hotspot, but that requires additional service features. More info on how to do that here.

    I already have the razr rooted and did the sql hack. I'm trying to use the OE app to usb tether to 1 pc. I dont want to use other apps. I have pdanet and crack but
    for some reason when I got the mobile hotspot usb working, it was alot faster than using third party apps. Just worked once for me.

    Got it to work once again. I used pdanet at first then some reason usb tether (the verizon app) started working. I shut off pdanet and ran a speed test.
    heres the results.
