    So I got the "root package" set of three downloads to upgrade from froyo to ginberbread (http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/...erbread-2-3-3-4-5-588-install-patch-root.html) .... And anyone else experience a sense of Motorola locking down more than ever before? Here's what I've experienced thusfar:

    1. Barnacle Wi-Fi Tether is detected by the phone as Mobile Hotspot (I get the "Tethering or Mobile Hotspot Active" notification) and 3G disconnects and reconnects under the dun, rendering barnacle useless despite root access.

    2. QPST editing won't work anymore so there's no editing out the "dun." (some of you know what I'm taking about, some won't)

    3. I used fission ROM Manager to install some things, like the microbes live wallpaper, and now my phone won't boot, it just loop-restarts to the red M logo.... sensitive bootloader much?

    All the above worked on Froyo...

    So yeah, anyone else here have any or all of these problems? Any solutions out there?

    others have gotten root. are other root programs getting root access? have you installed busybox? busybox is necessary for TiB to get root access.

    My Titanium has root. I only have two issues with GB

    1. Wifi Tether starts the 3g Hotspot app, even though the 3g hotspot app is disabled in its configuration

    2. sometimes when i hold menu to bring up recent apps, clicking one of the apps shown tells me "application is not installed" even though it clearly is.

    Wonder if the tether issue is baked into the rom itself in a attempt to stop the unpaid tethering.

    1. Don't steal from Verizon
    2. ?
    3. Are the things you tried to install from Fission Gingerbread compatible? I know a lot of apps have been pushing updates due to issues with GB (Vignette comes to mind immediately)

    I have no problems with TB, I can uninstall system apps and freeze just fine. Perhaps you got a bad install? Did you guys that are having problems follow the steps?

    I installed this version of GB, with the 3 ZIP files. I booted and everything is rooted, and the WiFi tether app that I installed months ago, still works fine. I don't really use it, as it is more for emergencies, but I did test it and it works fine, no patches needed.

    I have used several other apps that require root and they all work. Removed bloat, etc...

    When you did the flash with the Bootstrap app, did you make sure to use the one for the Droid2 and not Droid X?

    I don't use the tethering app, so I really don't care one way or another, but I don't see how you can call it "stealing". If someone is paying $30 a month for UNLIMITED data, how is using it to tether stealing?

    Sometimes I take things too literally, but paying for unlimited data, one should be able to receive their data...... unlimited.



    just sayin'.

    Wow this is basically just another thread for people to announce there right to tether, with a different name. OMG I Can't use my phone that I got at a discounted price with a contract to do things that violate my tos and in the end did screw all of us. So thanks to all you tether happy people, truly thank you.

    What everyone fails to remember, is that you are not paying $30 a month for Unlimited Data on Unlimited Devices...you are paying for Unlimited Data for your Mobile/Cellular Device...and thats the key.

    Just because you are trafficking the data through your cell phone to your laptop/X-Box/PS3 or whatever, does not negate the fact that it is not the actual phone doing the data use...for which you pay the additional $30 a month...
