    Root Question...

    Noob here when it comes to rooting...had the OG Droid for 2 years stock & now have the TBolt stock since it came out. Been very happy with stock Bolt but am thinking I'd like the free wifi hotspot available with root. My noob question is once you root do you have to add a certain ROM for the free wifi hotspot to work or will it work once rooted?? Any info would be great, thanks!

    It will work on the stock ROM once you are rooted. No need for a certain ROM.

    So the revolutionary method is not working for me since I have the latest update from VZW, running 2.3.4, software # 2.11.605.9...from the searching I've done it looks like I need to downgrade to the older version for this method to work. The problem I have is this method says it won't wipe data, but downgrading to the older version says it will wipe data...Is there really no updated way to root 2.3.4 using revolutionary without data wipe??

    I just went threw this...I got the downgrade loaded...the was going step by step with the revolution method video step by step...everything went just as the video said it would go, right up till the step that said hit power and revolutionary recovery would come up, thats where my phone would just go and reload the downgraded file I had already loaded....I was stuck in a loop and couldnt get any replys here to help me out, so I basically let the downgrade rom load then let the OTA update me again...and just stayed stock..

    Will do...

    How did you get the downgrade loaded I can't even get that part done. I download the link for the file from here...[HOW-TO]Downgrade to get S-OFF after updating to latest OTA 2.11.605.9
    I follow these instructions to the t, but when I am in the hboot screen and it loads the .zip file it doesn't give me this option:
    9. When its done it will ask you to PRESS VOL UP TO UPDATE
    10. press volume up at that time. (UP NOT DOWN!!)
    11. It will take approximately 4 minutes to complete the downgrade
    12. when its done it will say PRESS POWER TO REBOOT
    13. Press power at that time
    14. phone reboots completely wiped and back on 2.11.605.5

    After it loads, all my options are just the standard hboot options of reboot, recovery, etc...

    Any thoughts??

    at the top of the white screen does it say s-off?

    I could get the downgraded update...and then get all the wway thru to the point it is supposed to reboot to recovery mode...mine would just reload the downgrade zip file...I couldnt get anyone to help with what was happening tthere or why...so I just let it load...then the OTA kept trying to load..so with no replys to help me out I just took the OTA and stayed stock since then.
