    i just successfully rooted my droid 2 for the main purpose of having free wifi tethering, which currently for me isnt working properly right now. But i have been looking around the interwebs and i see nothing else to do with a newly rooted droid device. So i have 2 questions to ask the droid 2 rooted forum users:

    1] What's the best app currently that is used for a rooted droid 2 wifi tethering?

    2] What other awesome stuff can i do with a rooted droid 2 besides wifi tethering?

    1] I used Wireless Tether and it wouldn't work on my D2, Barnacle did though!

    2] I liked the idea of rooting so I could "freeze" those unwanted apps preloaded on the phone. Also change the theme, overclocking with the new D2/DX app, ability to take screenshots and share my mods. I'm sure others will chime in and include many more features only available with root.

    Are you using Wireless Tether from the Android Market?

    go get SetCPU, i use it when i want to give my phone a speed boost for a short period of time, ill set it to 1GHz and it stays there without going under that.

    I do have and currently use wireless tether.

    What's the point to overclocking the droid? I never did understand why that was big news

    Its like supercharging a car engine, the processor in the phone would be that engine.

    No free version that I know of. Theming and roming is a good thing to look in to now that you're rooted. I'm not currently running any rom but I do use 928 droid black glass and its tops.

    Also screenshot apps like shootme and drocap are a must.
