    Unlock / Root question

    SO I don't know much about rooting / unlocks and jailbreaks. All I want to know is if i use the super-boot easy method will I be able to use the USB tether . Bluetooth Tethering or mobile hotspot without the crazy extra $30 fee?

    Sucks that VZ blocks this i can't even connect via bluetooth to my tablet to transfer files, but it will work if i pay for the mobile hotspot service.

    Or BT tether and USB tether but I think that may require a ROM. There is a no root wifi tether on Droid Life couple days ago.

    Yes you can go go back to 100% stock. Make sure and do lots of research and read our guides on rooting. Also make sure you read about going back to stock. There are few different methods to root and going back to stock.

    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    Yes you should be good to go. This is what I use android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting
