Barnacle says you need to be rooted right in the download.
Why is it that only rooted phones have the wifi tether option? Is there something in the software that prevents this?
The rooting and wifi tether are not hard to do, at all. Just do some reading. I was nervous before I did it, but it was the best thing I did for my droid. I use the tether constantly in the car. Droid in the cradle and I use an ipod touch to check email and respond. I have had two laptops and an itouch running off the droid tether at the same time. I have no idea if there is a limit to simultaneous connections.
I was going to root and then 2.1 happened. I know you can turn back to 2.01 and then root but now I'm thinking that I'll just wait for the 2.1 root dealy.
Bottom line, I don't know my arse from a hole in the wall when it comes to this stuff.
you can still use Voice with Root. Rooting really just gives you administrator access to your device so that you can make more changes. It doesn't prevent you from using any apps.
