Ok, read through all of the sticky threads about rooting but still don't even know where to start. I'm not a Unix/Linix guru but I'm handy from a technology-standpoint but I don't know how to go about rooting my Droid.
I have the original Droid with latest updates on it. Looking to root for the following reasons:
-getting a little more life out of it. Plan on upgrading eventually (later this year) but would like to breathe some more excitement into it to keep me going.
-looking to use Barnacle WiFi Tether to use as a hotspot and to take advantage of my data plan with an Android tablet and a laptop.
-would like to investigate other apps which will help me which require root-level permissions.
I understand what rooting is and what it means. Just don't know how to go about doing it. Don't know where to start. I am on a Mac (I've seen a lot of instructions assuming the user is on a PC.). Where can I go to find good info on how to root my Droid?
Thanks a bunch in advance and sorry to have to post this but just not finding how to go about doing it.
