    Thumbs down Froyo will not unlock mobile wifi or tethering on Moto Droid

    So I've seen this on a few different sites, and I'm not going to lie I'm kind of ticked off at this fact. I'm not going to say this is something that I'd definitely use on a daily basis (in fact, I'd probably rarely use it b/c of the horrid speed), but having the capability to at LEAST tether would be mighty nice...

    I realize that I could just root to something that would allow this, however, I tried rooting once before. I was successful, but had TONS of FC's and just general ridiculous lagging. This paired w/ the fact that the battery life is HORRIBLE with the version of BB that I was running (I didn't realize it was that bad until I reverted and unrooted. I was used to getting through a night at work and being left with 20% battery with little to no use ... turns out it was just the phone running too hot all the time!)...

    This all paired with the fact that I went home this weekend and my parents DSL modem/router was fried so I couldn't get online...

    It's there. But is anyone using it yet? How's it working? Do you have to interact with Verizon to activate it? Etc.

    I'm using the 600 SV Low = 125MHz and haven't charged it for 2d 5h 18m.
    It says I'm at 40%.
    I run it at 550MHz with profiles set.
    I don't have any lagginess at all.
    I did use the internet and wifi but this kernel seems to be the best for my phone.
    I've never gone this long without a charge before.
    I normally charge when it hits 20% which normally took up to 1d 20h more or less more or less.


    This was with FRG01B.
    I have now updated the baseband to the version in the OTA and upgrade to FRG22.
    I haven't noticed any difference yet with the battery usage but only been off the charge for 5h 34m.(still at 90%)
