    But right now the reason people are rooting is being rooted allows you to use Free tethering but other then that, not much right now.
    It is possible to do these things with a locked bootloader. Read through the forums a little. I'm currently running a custom rom called Cyanogenmod 7, undervolted, and I have several tweaks flashed and my Droid 2, with a locked bootloader, has never run better.

    All of this is incorrect. A locked bootloader means you can't change the kernel, but plenty of locked phones are running CM and overclocked. My droid 2 has a locked bootloader, is running a custom ROM AND is overclocked to 1300 MHz.

    Right now there is only one exploit that allows tethering for free but it's very visible to VZW, the apps such as WiFi Tether and Barnacle do not work on this device.

    Please do some more research before posting any more misinformation.

    That's the second time I've heard this type of thing this week, difference is I got the other guy paid 30 grand that he was owed.

    Glad I could spread some cheer...for what it's really worth.

    If you use this you have an EXTREMELY high chance of being caught. Not enough is known about the method, so if you intend to use it, realize that you are at Verizon's mercy and they can do whatever they want to your account.

    i'm a noob for smartphone, but i rooted mine the day after i got my phone actually to somehow delete bloatwares
    however, i accidentally deleted some insignificant preinstalled apps without backing them up. so i'm trying to find out a way to reinstall these bloatwares for potential OTA update later
    if i can't, i would just wait for sbf file coming out and hopefully solves the problem with sbf. other than freezing bloatwares and backing up apps with TB, i don't see the point of rooting bionic
