Rooting and flashing a ROM to save the lock screen is a much better solution for me. I hate the forced locked screen.
I felt the same. I'm not rooted, unlimited data, and rely on FoxFi. Got it working just fine post-update, but needed the lockscreen to get it working. The lockscreen was a nuisance. Found a workaround from a forum at Android Central that worked for me:
"set a pattern lock and try to unlock the phone with a "bad pattern" for 5-10 times, it will show you an error message, now select "Forgot Pattern?" and enter your gmail/password. it will then take you back to the screen unlock settings...just hit the back button and it leaves you with no screen unlock and yet the foxfi works..."
End result: Not rooted, took the update, now I'm tethering with no lock screen. Life is back to good.
