    If they built in a hardware firewall outside of the O/S, then very easily it could. Same thing as if I put a router in between your cable modem and your computer, or your cable modem and your own router. I could then very easily setup QoS (quality of service) to limit bandwidth in any fashion I choose, and as long as you don't have access to to change settings on it, there wouldn't be a single thing you could do.

    I doubt this is the case, but it's very possible to do, were Motorola so inclined.

    Somebody on here already tested one non-root tether app and said it worked just fine. So that's very good news for us. I'd recommend a good read of this thread if you want to know more about what this "firewall" is. It's really not a firewall in a networking sense. Instead, it's just a third-party hardware agent that either blesses the state of the system and allows it to boot or intentionally bricks your phone.

    Supposedly Moto can easily repair this bricking, but that's not confirmed. I've seen somebody claim that it is permanent as well. Who knows who is correct on that one.
    Having SBF/RSD Lite issues? Make sure you have the right drivers installed! (32-bit or 64-bit)
