So how 'bout that 2.3.6 update?...

My provider's website has the 2.3.6 announcement. I think they might have pulled the updated for now do to hearing about the tethering issue. Just my best guess though.

I just got my Nexus S two days ago with 2.3.4 pre-installed. As long as the update is stable I personally am not worried about tethering. However, for a general release they should have features working regardless if you use them or not.

That's reassuring. I was getting worried that this was intentional. It just didn't make sense.

Thanks for the reply. :)

Why don't you root ??? specially when you can lock and unlock the bootloader as you wish ?! so your warranty would still be good
I never had problems with CM7 installed... and i get the latest updates too

Rooting is not for everyone.

I did have my previous phone rooted and flashed with numerous different ROMs. All but 1 ROM didn't give me more internal memory. Example, the stock HTC Sense with Android 2.2 and no apps installed yet on the Desire left me with 130MB internally. ROMs like GingerVillain, Cyanogen, LeeDroid never increased that, some actually used up more. Only 2 apps I installed made use of rooting; Droidwall and Location Cache. The main benefit was 2.3 gave me more battery life and HTC Sense was removed as I used a custom AOSP ROM.

Now that I have the Nexus S I have all the benefits of the above and on a faster platform. With timely releases as compared to other venders i dont see myself rooting any time soon. Rooting has its place, however, its up to your needs.
