1. Make sure you do the 3g hotspot patch TBH: Droid 3G Hotspot NVRAM Hack (http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/android-hacks/5156-tbh-droid-3g-hotspot-nvram-hack.html) (this doesn't change the way the tether works, but makes it so data usage from tethering doesn't show on your account)

2. To start tethering, try putting the phone in airplane mode. Make sure you are using this tether program wifi_tether_v3_0-pre9.apk - android-wifi-tether - WiFi Tether for Root Users 3.0-pre9 *** EXPERIMENTAL *** - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting (http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/downloads/detail?name=wifi_tether_v3_0-pre9.apk). Create a shortcut to the tether and place it right next to the airplane mode shortcut. Right after you hit airplane mode off hit the tether on. This works for me every time. It may appear that the tether program is locked up, because you may see it's stuck at the "please wait while starting" screen. This won't matter. You will be able to connect to the tether, and it will be ultra fast.

It wont work. Tbh hack wont work and they won't be updating it...

You may be able to try wireless tether it might work. But it's not really suggested.

DX- rooted, overclocked, unthrottled, and running whatever ROM i felt like for today.
