    I'm positive. I just SBF'd to .330 and did the OTA update and then used OneClickRoot, it rebooted 3 times (during root process) and worked like a charm. Just make sure you have usb debugging on... and it's a good idea to slide unlock your phone when it boots up

    [ROOT/UNROOT] Droid 3 root instructions (One Click added for Windows/ Linux/ OSX)

    Use this..... works flawless if you haven't previously had root. If you had root before you need to sbf back to GB and then do it. Works great!!!

    I rooted with it (the OTA GB) and then installed the "wugfresh" wireless tether zip and wifi tethering is a breeze once more. (the way "wugfresh" works is it deletes the file that VZW uses to track illegal tethering) Very easy also....just google "wugfresh". Scratch that.... here is the link for it WugPacked GB Tether Patch [All-In-One Zips]
