With gb4dx, tethering was blocked by the kernel I believe, which is convenient for vzw because we can't change our kernel, and then there was a workaround posted on droid-life:

http://www.droid-life.com/2011/06/07/tip-droidx-gingerbread-wireless-tether-work-around/

And seems to fix the problem. It supports devices other than the droid x/2, but who knows, out of the 19 device profiles, one of them might help the revo, even though it's not listed

I am new, not stupid, and just went from the Droid to the LG Revolution. I want to de-Bing it and get some of the other Bloatware off. Can anyone give me a basic step-by-step for doing so? Just explain it like you're talking to your mom and I should do just fine. Don't assume that I know what ABD or ADB is, because I don't. :kiss:
