** Updated as of 10/2/11 **

This fix works well with Apex and the built-in tethering on that rom

This is a workaround for vz's tether block.
On stock GB I had to use the wifi tether for root users.

The How to guide for d2g rooted gingerbread tethering.
****Radiocom is a very powerful tool, I am not responsibly for your device or how you use it****
Note: I use radiocom on windows xp only, I find it to work perfectly this way
If you are using win 7 it is supposed to work, but my walk through is using radiocom 11.11.7 in XP
The radiocom software is available here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7632904/RadioComm_v11.11.7_Install.msi
1. Download and install radiocom
2. Open Radiocom, Now click the upper Left where it says MA> select common, and check MDM 6x00
3. Next under menu settings, goto USB and select PST driver.
4. Plug in phone to pc and put it in PC Mode.
5. Radio Detection in the upper right corner should appear green. (A few drivers might install the first time you plug it in)
6. Now use the arrow buttons on the right side of the screen to scroll over to the P2K4 Tab and select it.
7. *** During the process, the radio icon within radiocom should stay green and the info box should stay green after each stelem if it doesn't STOP something is wrong ***
8. In the lower left you should no see STELEM/ RDELEM buttons. To the left of it there are a few fields that currently have all 0's.
Now you need to change a few things. Set the following: *** First SELECT DEC instead of HEX***
*** Makes sure you selected the DEC button *** then make the following changes
Element ID : 8040
Record #: 1
Offset : 0
Length :128
Once you have these correctly inputted into the corresponding fields proceed to step 8.
9. Press the RDELEM button, this should cause the info box in the upper right to turn GREEN and populate information.
10. Below the RDELEM button the Data (HEX Only) field should now have a 128byte string, highlight the entire string and right click and copy the string.
11. Now change The Element ID to 8041 and hit STELEM.
12. Change the Element id to 8091 and hit STELEM.
13. Reboot your phone
14. install wifi tether for root users version 3 beta 6 and configure it, I have my device profile set to droid X and enabled the routing fix option, now it works well.

I finally found the qualcom radio hack and applied it, so far wifi tether works, but there is one issue, after using tether the market wont download over 3g until I have rebooted the phone.

I will post the nvhack instructions later.

I got a tweet from TBH about the NV hack. There is no patch for tethering on global devices using radio com. Needs to be done manually.
That is exactly what I did, I used radiocom and tweaked the radio.

after I sbfd the tweak was gone.

the radiohack can not be injected to the Rom.
your best bet is try compatibility mode and make sure you are running as administrator.

you need the nvram tweak, you might try radiocomm again and make sure you right click and run as administrator.
if not borrow a friends xp machine for an hour

If you wait for a gingerbread custom rom such as cm7 or miui, you wont need the radiohack. At least I doubt you will.

Ok, I have confirmed that you can undo the NVRAM hack without using an SBF. Simply follow all of the instructions in post 1, but after reading out element 8040, copy

4064756E2E767A7733672E636F6D000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Into the data field. Then change the element to 8041 and press STELEM, and likewise for 8042 and 8043. I did run into an issue where pasting with ctrl+v seemed to reset the length field, which didn't allow STELEM to work. I fixed this error message by reading out 8040 with RDELEM again, then pasting with a right click into the data field such that the 2 grey fields to the right (length and something else) weren't reset. I also made this that second time around to highlight only the characters in the string, not to the end of the line, and this may also have been the issue.

This causes tethering to reroute back to the verizon page.

@Ace , after undoing the hack, I installed opengarden tether- it does not seem to work out of the box. Is there some special setting/setup you need to use?
Thanks for the excellent info Blundebuss, I had the same experience with 3rd party tether apps prior to the NVRAM tweak.
I have a feeling everyone thinks they should work, but something in this build has a block/tether detection built into the ROM.

opengarden does appear to work fine with the nvram hack though.

Step 10 may be unnecessary, I was creating my writeup and copying some of the steps from another writeup.

I have not had to reboot except once to restore data after tethering. I have had to toggle airplane mode once today though :(

Someone, test this out, I did it and now have no 3g data loss and wireless tether for root users works too :)
I went into radiocom and reverted 8042 and 8043 to the following
4064756E2E767A7733672E636F6D000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

^^^^remove the spaces before pasting

Then is read 8040 and copied and pasted it to 8091 and hit stelem.

Try this and report back. I will update the OP if this works for others.

Ok, here is what I did, and have to report tether works AND 3g stays blue :)
I reverted the radio settings back to stock, and used qpst and changed the tether NAI string, remove the dun from [email protected] so it read [email protected] .
Then I went into radiocom and modified only element 8041 and 8091 to match 8040.
I then installed wifi tether beta 6 and went into settings and select Routing Fix.

I have used tether a few times today and 3g NEVER dropped or turned white :)
When I used wireless tether for root users it did turn white, if i toggled the radio to gsm and then back to cdma it would come back blue.
