You can still get the official update with tethering...
Someone discovered the update sitting on Google's servers in a version predating the Verizon cripple. It's the official update that will be pushed out OTA this week, except with tethering/mi-fi enabled.
You don't need to have rooted: this update works if your droid is stock, because it's the real, official update. I did it myself last night, and it works just fine.
