With this I have no reason to root, this is the only thing I'm "looking" for.
I'm with you here. I've recently been considering rooting my Droid, but this new update sounds like it will make it unnecessary. Tethering and 450% faster? I'm in.
But rooting is a fast and simple process, then installing Wifi tether from the market and you have your tethering.
It's the installation of custom ROMs and themes, just flashing stuff really, that takes more time. But simply rooting and wifi tethering now is a breeze. And to make it faster, SetCPU from the market can do that for you too.
