Sprint’s Android 2.3.5 update is rolling out to the Nexus S 4G now, much to the delight of those seeking better 4G connectivity. For those that have been enjoying free tethering with the Nexus S 4G, it’s a different story. The GRJ90 update effectively removes the ability to share your internet connection from the handset without first purchasing a mobile hotspot plan. We all knew free tethering was too good to be true, anyway.

In other news relating to the GRJ90 update, a root-friendly flashable version of Android 2.3.5 has been made available. The build by is ClockworkMod friendly, pre-rooted, deodexed, and even features busybox. The ROM is stock otherwise, meaning you will still lose tethering capabilities as mentioned above.

So how are folks enjoying Android 2.3.5, anyway?
