I just rooted my original Droid phone according to the instructions I found here:
Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version
It all seemed to work fine.
I've installed both, "Open Garden WiFi Tether" and, "Barnacle Wifi Tether" and they both seem to be working fine with no errors, but my Toshiba Thrive Tablet doesn't see there SSIDs and I can't connect because of that. I have no idea what's wrong because both apps are running with no errors and it seems like they are granted superuser access. Can someone please help me? Thanks for your time!
