I rooted my droid with the supplied link here
I also applied the tether app and it works great.
I noticed that I no longer have control over brightness in any way shape or form. This not the keyboard issue for 2.1 as I am running 2.0.1. My keyboard lights fine. Another issue is that the auto rotate is very slow now. I couldnt find anywhere where these were known issues on the version I used to root. How can I fix this?
