    If you've applied the 3g hotspot hack, remove it immediately.

    P3Droid posted this on twitter.

    The removal zip can be found on mydroidworld @ TBH: Droid 3G Hotspot NVRAM Hack

    Grab the unpatch zip file and run it in clockwork.

    Sorry for multiple posts, but this could be very important so I'm trying to get the word out.

    This is correct. Again, sorry for posting in multiple forums, I picked the busiest ones to try to inform people. I know a lot of users did install the original hack (darkslide included it as an add-on).

    As far as I know, sbf won't remove it, neither will flashing a different rom, you must run the unpatch zip file to get rid of it. Just want to make sure people know so that if they installed it long ago and have forgotten about it, they still have a chance to remove it.

    Apparently - "some people are getting abnormal download speeds, and it is being investigated"


    - if you don't illegal tether then it shouldn't be a concern -

    @P3Droid You do understand that uncapped Tbolt thing was an april fools joke of mine? It was a rickroll bootscreen

    However the warning is real as far as removing the HotSpot as stated by the OP

    Was this a hack you had to independently do or did it come with the thb gb leak? Is it only if u use the stock 3g hotspot app... not wifi tether or barnacle?

    This has nothing to do with the gb leak. it only applied to those who applied the tethering patch. Seems verizon may be cracking down on those who tether without a data plan for it.

    ok so this may seem like a dumb question but do we download the Patch or Unpatch file to remove the 3g hotspot?

    People that tether and use a ton of data deserve it, same with people that apply to hack that removes throttling. It is all bad news and is not helping us to unlock any bootloaders.

    I had applied the patch prior to having to do a full factory reset back to stock. Would I have to worry?

    Verizon just announced that if you installed the GB leak they are going to lock you up for life and then Moto is going to have their way with you in your cell.....no vasiline unless you are on an unlimited plan. ;)

    Come on....there have been rumors floating around for a long time about VZW doing this and Moto doing that.

    It is confusing because on one hand you will read that they don't care about the low percentage of phone owners who are complaining about locked bootloaders....which is probably the cause of them wanting to lockdown the phone's even more....on the other hand you hear that they are targetting us.....so which is it? Do they care or no?

    Either way....you know what I am going to do if VZW cuts me off? Flash my phone over to another network and keep on keeping on. Rooted and all.

    But to keep the panic going......YES....EVERYONE has to worry to the point of stressing out. If you have even said the words "root" or "tether" then you are guilty and VZW knows who you are. You are going to wake up one day with the "can you hear me now" guy standing at the foot of your bed quoting the ToS to you and saying...."can you hear me now?"


    ok.....none of the above is actually true....I am just messing with you guys.

    Well this is weird. I never used the hack from tbh for mobile hotspot. I had used wireless tether with froyo. So I loaded the first unrooted gb, then used sbf to get stock then the rooted gb. I did run a file nothrottledxgb.zip thinking it would up the speed as the no throttle appeared to do with froyo. No apparent difference. I was going to load wireless tether but clicked mobile hotspot to see if it worked thinking that since it was free for a bit on the thunderbolt it might work. It did. It also worked on the unrooted gb though. So I've used it a few times in the past week. So do I need to do anything to unpatch anything or just don't tether. I first noticed it worked with the unrooted gb when I used it waiting for root so I would switch to wireless tether. So I know it did work.
