    How to activate Android 2.2 Hot Spotting on Version Droid?

    So I just installed the Android v2.2 OS update. Viewing the release notes I found that Verizon blocked the Tethering as a Hot Spot option....there may be other things Verizon blocked as well but I haven't gotten that far into the new version.

    I searched various threads and did not see any suggestions so I am posting this question. Is there a way to enable this on my Motorola Droid?

    You would have to root and then run one of the wifi tethering programs. Not true "hotspots" since they use Ad Hoc mode. The Droid1 can't run as a hotspot in infrastructure mode like a typical router/hotspot. At least I have never seen anyone able to make it work.
