    So, realizing that ICS will be longer than I hoped, I finally rooted using motofail.:icon_ banana: So I froze some bloatware. What is the best wifi tether? Is there a hack to make my ringer louder? Not really into ROMing, so what else would be beneficial?

    I have Foxfi now. It works. Wonder if it's traceable. Also just seeing if there may be a better one. Any other root apps I should get?

    I wonder about this as well.

    You can freely USB tether on the bionic without any 3rd party apps or modifications. Since all you're doing is replacing the cable with WiFi; I don't see why vzw would care.

    For tethering or hotspot?

    You can freely USB tether on the Bionic with no extra charge, 3rd party apps, or modifications.

    Normally, if you try to USB tether on a vzw phone natively you'll get redirected to a vzw page. On the Bionic (maybe other LTE devices?) you can just do it. No page redirects. According to people who have asked vzw about it say it's not extra.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-bionic-tech-support/191744-i-thought-you-had-pay-hotspot-tethering.html

    Made a topic about it when I first discovered it. For whatever reason it's not really well known. Which is kind of weird since it's free verizon approved tethering.
