When I got my DX I came here to get information on how to root, overclock, and tether it. All the information, while it probably worked, was convoluted and full of claims for no responsibility.
But then I found the app Z4root and with one click I was rooted. Then I found the app Droid x/2 Overclock and shortly I was overclocked. Then I found the app Wireless Tether and one click later I was tethered. I am now waiting for JRummys new ROM because I came to trust his software after using the overclock routine he wrote.
So whats the mystery, why all the odd ways to do these things? There is no Magic. Its easy.
