    Would it be possible to some how to unlock the wifi hot spot on my TB?I would think if rooting would do it but not sure. I think it dumb we have to an extra 30 bucks a month to use but that is HTC for yea. Any ideas would be great ?

    I also though about hooking up a router to my laptop and then using the router to boost out my signal to other devices .Would that work ?

    Root will allow you to at least download a different hotspot app to use.

    Either way, what you are describing is typically a root only feature. You can USB tether without root but that's about it.

    so it is required to root the thunderbolt in order to bypass the htc tether guard?

    Wait, if I connected a USB cable from my Thunderbolt to say a tablet, it could use my phones internet connection, no wifi/hotspot/whatever necessary?

    I gave up on this topic and project. Maybe on my next phone I will root ( s4 perhaps) I just could never figure out the rooting process for this phone.
