    2.1 and tethering

    To the few who have the 2.1 update (manual or otherwise) Can you still use PdaNET to tether??

    I'm still 2.0.1

    So technically to be 100% legal, just call up Verizon Wireless and get the additional $30/month for the "tethering" and it should be ok to use my Droid as a 3g wireless internet card. Right?

    That's good news. There are rumors floating around the internet that the update disables tethering without forking over more $$ to Verizon.

    I'm running the 2.1 that PETE posted yesterday. The "wireless tether for root users" app didn't work until I put Chevys overclocking kernel on it. I can vouch that that app works just fine.

    something you don't have to worry about.....answers your looking for is non-root (stock) 2.1 tethering with PDAnet or another app.

    from what I've read thus far you are still able to tether....
