    I just read the post about rooting the Citrus, once its rooted can you wireless-ly tether or even usb tether?

    I mostly got it because it was time for my upgrade and Im hurting for $ right now, deciding wether to sell the droid or sell the citrus, i really like my droid but i dont know which has the better resale value and if i will beable to tether the citrus...

    Only run what's made for your phone. Even D2 ROMs won't work for a D2G.

    I rooted my friends Citrus using z4root.1.3.0

    Very easy, install and root.

    I did it using z4root, I used the 'temporary root' option cuz I was a little scared to try the permanant. It seemed to work & after about 5 mins it said I had root. But at that point the whole phone got suuuuuper slow I mean like completely unusable. I tried to kill off some tasks but it didn't help. I rebooted and things are back to normal but I guess the root is gone. I heard some ppl used the permanent root on the citrus and it worked. so maybe i'll give it a shot.

    also, what app (or what method) should I use to delete or disable some of the garbage that comes with this phone? i want to free up space for apps that I will actually use.

    I need to delete the following junk:
    "My Verizon"
    Bing
    "Backup Assistant"
    City ID
    Facebook
    "File Manager"
    Bing Maps
    MobileIM
    MySpace
    QuickOffice
    Skype mobile
    Treehugger
    VCAST Tones
    VCAST videos
    VZ Navigator
    WeeWorld

    Do NOT delete the bloatware! Either rename it with Root Explorer or freeze it with Titanium Backup Pro, trust me!
    Temporary Root is supposed to remove root after a reboot...that's what's "temporary" about it. Permanent root can still be unrooted but su will remain until you do so.

    The free version can be used to make backups but, the full version is required to freeze apps.
