    The thread has been unstuck as VD breaks it. I warned of this in November when i posted the thread. Those with unrooted phones should just be happy they had 5 months of this service free

    Your options now are:
    1) Call Sprint and pay for the tethering service.
    2) Root your phone.

    There is no fix. The only options are listed above. Sprint/LG left open a hole that other manufacturers have been patching for a while, it was a mistake and you can be assured they won't do it again.

    I am driving, riding actually, and using my optimus as a hotspot, we basically having a mobile LAN party. Anyways I've been using it for a hotspot since late Dec and haven't been charged for it. Still using the v9 software.

    Funny part is I'm sending this from my evo.

    You have to agree to the updates Sprint pushes to you also.

    So far Sprint has not made VD and OTA update yet. It is only for LG Software Updater side-loading right now. Eventually that will change. You should always choose the LG Software Updater method. Do NOT take the OTA updates.

    And what do you do with 2 ? what about C) leave VC on don't update.
    what app will tether in AP mode on VD ad-hoc is point less in my book.

    Ya that sucks thats why i'm still running 2.1 on my Epic wifi tether 3.0 pre XX is kinda flakey on froyo. That and the EB13 froyo that samsuck and sprint put out sucks and is full of bugs.

    Well i guess i will just leave my GFs Optimus on VC. And anyone got a link to some info on how to block the update popup from showing when sprint starts to push it OTA

    Well, I messed with mine a little more and somehow now the wifi hotspot works. Running VD with ThundeROM1.8 on a fresh reboot. I'm using Hotspot Toggle widget from the market. I'm posting from my tethered laptop right now.



    Painfully sloooow but it works.

    Someone mentioned something along the lines of pressing the info button on the prompt to install the update, then pulling the battery at the next screen. Upon reboot the prompt is never given again to install the update and it doesn't get installed.

    It (the widget) will work on ThundeROM 1.8 because of a change we made but as you're experiencing, our results were inconsistant. That will not work on a stock VD phone.

    I STUPIDLY allowed my phone to update all the while having a gut wrenching feeling that I was going to lose my "WiFi Hotspot" and I did. Now I am pissed at myself for doing this and I REFUSE to pay Sprint an addition 30 bucks a month for something that I supposedly have anyway.
    I went round and round with a rep the other day asking why I had to pay the fee when I already have unlimited data on my plan, and all she could say was that because I could connect up to 5 devices and have unrestricted bandwidth, is why. I just wanted to scream at her and say that if my plan already has unlimited, why do I have to pay more for unlimited??
    I hope someone can figure out a way around this. I am too tech-phobic to try rooting my phone.

    Unless you want to root your phone, you're SOL (sorry). I know exactly how they did and and theres no plan B. Root or pay are your options if you want wireless tethering.

    i've got no problem rooting, but all of the root wifi tethering programs set this up as an adhoc network, which won't work with ipod/ipad/etc devices. if there was an available infrastructure tether, this would be perfect, as it seems like my battery life was slightly improved with zvd

    See ThundeROM change log. AP mode with the regular widget works. As I said before, I know exactly what their fix was.

    so if the fix is known, why can't it be bypassed with a stock rom rooted phone?

    I am in the same boat.

    Sprint pushed the update last night and now my Quick Settings / Hotspot On thing no longer works.

    I've read through the forums for a couple of hours now and I'm at the point where I'm sure I have to root if I want to fix this problem. However... there are many different root options - V9, VC, VD, and I don't know what it all means.

    So much of the information appears to be based on older operating systems, now that I"m on whatever version of the sprint firmware I'm on , will any of those work ?

    What is my next move ?
