Guys, Ive rooted my Atrix2, and enabled some features previously locked by AT&T. Most important of them were the mobile hotspot and the ability to set network to "2G only"

Now my question is: what would happen when I get an official update to ICS? I think I'll loose the root access. But will I ALSO loose the features I've unlocked?

> In reply to Kandhari @ 2012-04-25 02:43 from KAk8 - click to readThank you for the input. Perhaps i wasn't very clear. I purchased the phone on ebay, coz of the price and we won't be getting the Atrix 2 anytime soon in my country. It was an unlocked AT&T phone, but some features seemed locked out so that they wouldn't work on just any network. Perhaps on partner networks, they would.
Anywaaay, since I have no warranty to speak of, I've resolved the mobile hotspot/tethering issue by rooting the phone and manually changing some permissions through SQlite editor.

But I still cant find the permission to unlock the network setting or any other workaround. Custom ROM is a bit risky for me to try, so it's a last resort. So has anybody succeeded in dealing with the issue?

Battery life when I'm at the office is phenomenal. But in the suburbs it's downright horrible. My old blackberry outlasted it by hours simply because I can set it to "2G only".

I gave them my phone for dust under the screen issue and they updated the phones software to resolve it. Can you beat that? Flashing the stock ROM could only take 1 hr at max and they have no explanation to why the phone was kept at the service center for 7 days.

> In reply to 1sickbastard @ 2012-04-24 14:16 from tDDb - click to readYou dont need to flash a custom ROM for all this. You need to setup an account before you start using the Hotspot functionality. Simply tap the option below the Mobile Hotspot tab and choose a password. You'll then have to enter this password on your laptop/tab to use internet via phone. Please note that flashing custom ROM will void your warranty! Do not do so unless you are a pro and understand what you're doing.

It says account was not set to work as a hotspot. Will a custom ROM fix this? If so, where can i find one. Preferably with instructions.
