    Data throttling is handled on the server side, not the client side – so this won’t work.

  5. I just got the G2X and T-Mobile throttled me after a couple of weeks. Can I stop throttling without rooting?

    @TechnoHippie: Actually it depends on the carrier. T-Mobile’s throttling is handled client-side, at least for Android devices. Different devices handle this differently as well.

    This services.jar actually does work, and not just for the G2X. At the risk of bricking my phone, I actually tested this file on a Garminfone (easily one of the worst Android phones ever made), and surprisingly enough I am no longer being throttled. T-Mobile has a rolling 30 day calendar for throttling purposes, and since I was throttled less than 2 weeks ago, and have already used more than 2 GB over the last few days at 3G speeds, I can guarantee that it does work.

    @Nambo: You need root access to read/write/overwrite the services.jar file, which T-Mobile uses on Android devices to handle throttling.

  7. Do you have to b rooted to do this?

  8. I hope this works on cm7!!
