    So this is my first post, I recently swapped from an At&t iphone to a Verizon Droid R2D2. I had my Iphone jailbroken. It was awesome. So i want to get to that point with my Droid. Basically all I want right now, is for my phone to sent out WIFI so i can use my laptop. Can someone please give me some instructables so I can get to that point? As of right now, I know NOTHING about rooting. So help a noob out?

    use this link to learn how to get rooted. If the Z4 works on your phone it will be painless. The Z4 apk is in this link for you to download.

    So it probably wouldn't be a good idea to use it to update my xbox games haha. So they will charge for the wirless tether thing even though I have unlimited data? If im caught...
