Default MetroPCS blocked Tethering.

I rooted my phone a couple of months ago, and installed a few things to allow me to tether wifi.... It has all worked fine up until the day before yesterday. I noticed my phone shut off, and rebooted itself out of nowhere. Then after that, I am not able to tether.

When trying to use wifi, my browser on whatever I am using (ipad, laptop, etc) opens to a page saying that "Wireless Tether services are currently not available with MetroPCS".

I also noticed that my keyboard looks different on the phone. So metro pcs must have sent out some update to my phone, although it is still running the same Android 2.3.4....... So I am not sure what happened, but how do I get my Tether ability back?


A couple of people suggested that perhaps my phone is no longer rooted...


As far as I know, it is still rooted. The WirelessTether app goes through the motions, says it has been granted SuperUser permissions, and the phone begins t broadcast the tether signal...... But when I try to use the internet (on ipad, laptop, etc) it takes my browser to this page saying "Wireless Tethering not currently available with MetroPCS". Or something to that effect. How can I know for sure if my phone is still rooted?
