    Anyone who has updated their Pro to Gingerbread via the rooted version made available by P3Droid and Team Black Hat's app, and has been unable to tether due to the new security in place within Gingerbread, the new beta noted on the home page of Droidforums.net works....just gave it a try....

    Download the new wireless tether beta available here.. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/152394-droid-x-gingerbread-wireless-tether-workaround.html
    and then go into settings and select your device type as DroidX...I tried Droid2, but my tablet would not find the Android Tether....

    So when does it go to the vzw splash page...when you first turn on the wireless tether or when you try to connect a device?

    I am tethering a rooted android tablet (ASUS Transformer) so I'm wondering if that is why it is working for me...I rarely tether either, but definitely like to have the ability if some situation comes up...

    well, typically i don't tether either. but whenever i connect my laptop, the mobile hotspot fires up in addition to the yellow wireless tether beta, and it directs me to a splash screen. plus, it borks my data connection. i have to reboot, or things like tapatalk and social networking apps won't connect to server.

    Well upon further review, I AM having issues afterall....

    while I was able to tether fine...my android tablet to my Droid Pro...the Gingerbread security basically hijacked my network data connection....wasn't receiving exchange emails, google email, internet connection, or any other apps requiring data connection....

    was in meetings late morning, early afternoon and didn't realize what was going on...I tried to open Dolphin Browser on my Pro and it took me to VZW's mobile hot spot webpage....I rebooted my Pro and all service was restored...emails all started flowing in....what I don't like is that there is still a notifier that tells VZW when/if I'm tethering....no big deal for me because I don't have a real need to tether, but still don't like VZW having the ability to hijack my phone...could have put me in a real bind....

    so booda I'm in the same spot....no real loss but still chaps me....

    StingRay or anyone else...has there been any resolution to this? Didn't realize when I upgraded to GB that I'd be giving up my tether.

    Tethering is clutch as hell. Don't use it much, but it counts when I do. Please let me know if you found a way to fix this.

    **Update** Easy Tether is working for me, but Wireless tether is still a no go. HELP!
