Default Is Bluetooth PAN Possible?

I have rooted and am running a ?current? 2.3.6 Prevail with the latest CT Mod Koumakernal. Recently tried connecting my phone with my bluetooth laptop. Was able to access files on it but what I really want to do is go online using the bluetooth connection. I can only assume if Boost doesn't want people ad-hoc tethering it must also not like bluetooth tethering. I have the wifi tether hack, have not been able to use it yet, but has anyone coded/hacked their way around this. Because to me it seems like a more natural state for the phone to be running in, assuming you can get the protocols onto the phone.

You cant use Wifi tether for root users? It is working fine for everyone else... why are you messing with BT? Trying to reinvent the wheel?
