Any other method that might work is inferior to this method, but for Wi-Fi tethering purposes they will work; they're really not that much easier, though. Also, if you're planning on using a Droid 1 for a hotspot you need to make sure that your device can connect to an ad-hoc network. Otherwise you're out of luck. Check into that and then return and we'll get you rooted and tethering.
Glad to hear it fixed it. A soft reset like that can cure any number of ills.
You're SOL with tethering the iPod Touchedyouwhere? This method MIGHT work (though I do NOT recommend Barnacle to anyone as I've never had a good experience with it). How to: WiFi Tether a Motorola Droid to an iPad - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
But I don't know if you can do the same thing on the iPod Touchedmeinappropriately. The laptop PROBABLY won't be a problem. However, for the most part I'd USB tether a laptop for security reasons.
This didn't work the first time so I was trying it again. I clicked start in RSD lite and right away it said error. Now when I turn my phone on, the bootloader comes up and says code corrupt. HELP!! Phone will not work.
