    i am sure you could over tether, but why? slow and eats your data plan fast.

    sit in starbucks or mcdonalds and do it free over wifi.

    Possibly tethering it but not over bridge. Although, I wouldn't suggest it in case it loses connection while downloading. Never experienced this so I'm not sure exactly what happens, but I'm pretty sure your Playbook implodes.

    It definitely works over tether. I updated my playbook once at work before the 7.1 leak came out for the bold.

    If you are trying to just update your OS already installed in your PB to the newest one then it shouldn't be a problem.

    However, if this is a new PB and your doing the initial setup---- then it works only over Wifi (absolute necessity). If you don't have a wifi at home, try a hotspot location (Starbucks etc) or a friends place.
