Hey, ACE, I just dl'd OpenGarden to try it out, but upon running it stated my ROM doesn't allow Access Control, and when I connected my laptop it sent me directly to V's "pay me" page. I'm running GB rooted. Any insight?

Also, can nvram be injected directly into the next GB CM4D2G? Windows Vista 32 bit is a jerk and won't allow me to connect through RadioComm.

What is the point of step 10? You copy the string but never paste it anywhere. I followed the instructions otherwise and both wifi tether 2.0.7 and wireless tether beta 3 work no problems. Thank you!

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.

So after doing the hack, I also notice you have to reboot to regain network connection. Is there a fix for that? Also in step 10 after copying where do you paste? I notice it had been asked a few times within this post but not answered.

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 :(

This can be done in cdma workshop, and you all need one more memory location to fix the 3g not returning issue. 8091, we use this as part of a Cricket phone flash. The early post of the guy saying he isn't on Big Red, has a flashed phone, and the nv hack is part of this flash. So after you do 8040-8043, do the same code on 8091. Post back if this fixed 3g for you.

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.

I tested it out slightly differently to compare results.... I DID NOT revert 8042 and 8043 I left them at the original "hacked setting" but did read 8040 and copied and pasted into 8091. It too seems to be working however this is rather an intermittent problem I have found and it may take a few times for the 3G to drop after tethering. I will at different points today turn on wifi tether do a little browsing from the laptop and turn it off and see if 3G drops. To be honest with you I dont have the slightest idea what these 8040 - 8091 settings change but I can follow directions like a sonuvab1tch so hopefully one of our methods here work. :) Oh and if I failed to mention it in a earlier post (I cant remember) thanks again for finding this mod in the first place!

Quick update.. my 3G connection never changed blue (I have read that it means it is connected and signed, or something like that) any way rebooted the phone and it was blue again. Used radiocom and changed 8042 and 8043 to the original settings as indicated above in audinutt's post. Tether still works and 3G connection is too working. Icons are still white however, honestly I have no idea what the hell this means but thought I should mention it. Either way seemed to have the same results and since I have no idea what this really changes I thought I would just provide the results and let the experts say which way is better.... To leave 8042/8043 or not leave....lol

So I googled and found out that when the icon is blue it means your connected to google services when its white your not but still have data. Both of the ways above result in the same situation where it remains white after I shut down wifi tether.
