    And when you turned off your home internet router did your 3g connection still work?

    Yay! I'm glad we have another successful root!

    I also got the newer version of android wifi tether working! For what it's worth Surreal, I went with the beta version, not the "experimental" version, wifi_tether_v3_1-beta10.apk.

    Edit: Speedtest results. Not good, but honestly, it didn't "feel" this slow in normal browsing.

    Hi guys. Just wondering if you experienced any problems after rooting?

    Occasionally when I lock my screen, wait a few minutes, and then unlock it, the screen glitches rapidly just before the lockscreen appears. I have a feeling that it might be related to renaming the camera/camcorder shutter sound files. It's minor but definitely noticable.

    I have had no problems with the screen. But I did get WiFi tether working. BUT when I enable WiFi Encryption and change the Passphrase then it stops working.

    oh yes and 1 other thing when it was working my speeds were SLOW 1/2 mb down and up. But I'm in a building so that was no shock

    No problems with the screen here. The only buggy behavior I've seen is 2-3 sontaneous reboots since I've owned it. No idea if rooting is responsible, but it certainly could be.

    >Surreal Great that you got the tether working. I havent tried encrypting it yet, so I may have the same issue if I do.

    Yeah mine has rebooted while I'm using it about 3 times in total since I rooted it. Even before rooting, it randomly rebooted itself every now and then, just like my old Droid Pro. I think it's just a Motorola thing.

    I really wish there were some custom ROMs, MotoBlur is unacceptable.

    I wanna thank San DIego and Zelda and my playbook wants to than you as well.
    I finally got wifi tether to work with your help.
    One quick question , can I enable security so everyone in my job doesnt steal my wifi.

    I have found that if you do enable security it will not work. But maybe you will have better luck

    Update just killed my tethering..Dont update.
    Do a search on Update killed Root..Looks like someone has blue tooth doing the tethering until a fix pops out.
