    BB v.4 ... have been rooted since the root was available. There use to be a wifi tether app and idk what happened to it or is it still the best way to WIRELESSLY become a mobile hotspot.

    The one on the Google Code server is the latest. Get the largest number pre release.

    The ones in the market are outdated because they're buit from the latest "stable" code.

    all I did was rename the SSID, make a password, and enable WEP. I was good to go after that.

    I like the tether also better than the wireless because its faster and it charges the battery on the Droid at the same time, otherwise I can run the Droid battery down pretty fast when connected to my LapTop. :blackdroid:

    i'm on a trip and the "high speed internet" in the motel sucked so i tried wifi tether for the first time and it works great, but i've been seeing verizon commercials saying it's like 20 bux a month extra.

    does this not apply to rooted users?

    WiFi tethering isn't the same thing as a WiFi Hotspot, and Verizon officially says the Droid can't do Hotspot.

    And yes, rooted tethering is free.
