Hi, I am totally a Newby here on this site but am so excited to have found it. I am a middle aged mom who is above average for her age group on tech things but honestly I need help for this as I do not want to blow up my phone.
An IT co-worker and I got the Droid when it first came out (I think Nov 2009). He rooted my phone and added wireless tethering to my phone. I was one happy camper! Fast forward to now, I no longer work there and I am stuck with an old operating system which has become very buggy. It has a slow re-write time, and when the new OS downloaded, it fails to update giving me an error and I have to rebook. It also causes my screen to lock on a regular basis where I have toyank the battery. I will give you all the specs I know and maybe you can tell me what to uninstall and what to re-install to get my droid up to speed.
Phone: Origional Droid
Android Version: 2.2
Baseband Version: C_01.3e.03P
Kernal Version: 188.8.131.52-g103d848
(I hope those are the specs you need)
My IT friend down loaded:
Bugless Beast Tool Kit (which gives me an error that it has stopped working)
The tethering still works great and I really need it for when we travel. So if someone could help me figure out how to upgrade my OS and still be able to tether I sure would appreciate it! I have an unlimited data plan so it is a shame to not use it.
