    As I understand, free tethering is blocked on GB 2.3. You can tether, it will just cost you $20 a month. People tend to find workarounds pretty quick tho, so stick around.

    2 questions.....

    Did you do the z4root AFTER taking the OTA?

    Have you tried Barnacle?

    In the same boat, except I haven't been uograded to 2.3 yet.

    Researching now if there is a solution out there yet to allow use of free wireless tether with a Droid X on 2.3 ( Gingerbread).

    My Xoom thanks you in advance for any info.

    Jz.

    I think we just have to wait for a new exploit so we can regain root under 2.3.3

    Guess I'll just hold off on the upgrade to GB until then.

    The OTA GB upgrade isn't forced without consent, right? I have to be asked and initiate the upgrade... Right?

    IIRC, it will ask for a while, but at some point it will do it on its own?

    I don't think so. Mine's been asking every 12 hours for a week now.

    Hey people after a while gingerbread downloaded all by itself. Then, guess what? It installed by itself. I was pissed. Went right to Verizon and asked them who owned my phone and what gave them the right to install without my permission. They blamed it on motor and told me to call them. We ALL know why they did it. For the $20.00 a month.

    Buy the way, I was waiting for the bionic, but I'm so hot over this, I'm thinking of swithching to the charge which is still running froyo. Hopefully some talented devs will come out with a 1 click root so I can stay with moto. But its going to have to be SOON. I've got all my root apps that I paid good money for like titanium backup. This sucks.

    That will definitely blow if they do that to me. Not going to fork out an additional $20 for an internet connection I'm already paying for.

    It's as arbitrary as my standard internet provider asking me to pay an additional $20 if I want to use Chrome and Firefox to browse the internet.

    Or

    Asking me to pay $20 extra dollars if I want to access my router from both upstairs and downstairs.

    Or more precisely,

    Asking me to pay an additional $20 if I want to have a router in my home. It's my router, and I pay for the internet connection. That's apparently good enough for the rest of the networking world.

    But not Verizon. They want to thieve as much as they can. So by saying, it's my phone, I pay for the internet connection, all I get in this situation is Verizon tampering with my phone, and being a victim of the behemoth that is Verizon.

    I really hope someone figures out wireless tether on GB soon.

    Jz.

    That's fine. If someone out there confirms that the OTA GB can be rooted, and has an easy to folow guide for doing so, and that will allow me to use wireless tether, then I'm a happy camper.

    But until then I'm a very concerned camper.

    No. No root method other than sbf to froyo and flash a rooted copy. But that literally takes ten-twenty minutes. Not that big of a deal.
