    Someone who had been working very hard on this at Motorola just came in this morning to basically be made to feel worthless even before his morning coffee.

    The only thing is we always knew Root would be possible, the eFuse is the problem and still is. We still can't load custom roms/bootloaders.

    Yes. You can also wireless tether, use MinFree and underclock the device.

    I am excited about this (esp as an X owner), and not to take anything away from the work that was done to get there, but isn't this a copy job of the milestone rooting? I will be impressed when the bootloader is cracked.

    You have to get "wireless tether" from the market.

    Ok I'm new and certainly not a computer expert at all. But what is the reason for rooting? What does it accomplish?

    Wouldn't something similar to a Nandroid work as a custom ROM substitute? We have the signature that the bootloader requires on our current setups... so couldn't we just mod our phones and then create backups that we flash? We would have to install all of apps again, sure, but we would have something similar to custom ROMs. We could edit the parameters of the kernals for overclocking, and we can theme with su. We're not really missing anything else.

    ahh nevermind that app is just for an ad hoc network. we were looking for the 3g hotspot option

    edit - nevermind again. looking at the app's homepage it seems as if we aint doign something write <-- hahaha right i meant. maybe its the kernel problem it mentions when you download it.
