I bought an iPad ,the one without 3G and I really wanted to usE my droid for tethering, well unfortunately I upgraded my droid to 2.1 and that left me no easy way to root my droid. I searched and found a pretty easy way to root my droid . I did it by using the sprecovery method ,there is a video online that shows you what to do. Well eventually I flashed a rom that gave me root access and this rom ,"jrummey" also makes your *droid a wifi hotspot. It is so cool, any wifi capable computer can use my droid to gain Internet access thru verizon 3G. *Thank you verizon. So if anyone needs a 3g wifi *portable hotspot this is the way to go! I did it and I know absolutely nothing about cell phones and computers. So if I can do it so can you.
Here is the website that can show you how. **
