"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.
Well maybe I can take the update after all.
Amy other update issues?
