    I'd like to hear from some first day users if they have obtained root access. Not any of this my friend has or somebody at android central has, But a first hand user on this forum. No screen shots required ill believe you

    Just rooted and superuser appears to be working.

    I used the Droid 3 MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe method.

    Now I need to find a way to get Wireless Tether working without paying.

    I'm in the same situation. Root successful, but so far a no go on tether apps. I've tried Barnacle and the android wifi tether app on google source code.

    Root successful. Not sure what trouble you're having with tethering, but PDA Net works perfectly for me. No problems so far.

    What happens when you try to use them? I'm about to root mine.

    It brings you to Verizon's tethering subscription page

    Download the tbh app. It has a tethering patch for wifi tethering and keeps you from getting the subscription screen.

    I wouldn't recommend trying a wireless tether until a custom ROM is released. You could inadvertently end up having to switch to a tiered data plan and be charged for the tethering plan.

    Yup, I Rooted First Day!

    After spending HOURS trying to set up my phone without Titanium Backup and Ad-Free, I just couldn't take it anymore. I did the one-click root and so far so good.

    Titanium Backup restored my data to the apps I couldn't recover the data for. And no more ads. Man, you just don't realize how many apps have ads these days! What a nuisance!

    Missing my pull down quick menu for wifi, bluetooth, GPS, tho... Was rocking Steel Droid on my OG Droid. This phone is really the same thing just more power and faster.

    Prime- Thanks for the screen shots... definitely helps. However I am still not seeing it on mine. Looking closer, at the top of the screen your app seems to be called "WiFi Tether" where mine is named "Wireless Tether" at the top. Are you running the same 3.1 beta 6 version thats in the link you provided? Maybe its one of the earlier beta versions that had these options... ?

    Mine seems to have the same options listed... except the first 2 are missing. (Change Device - Profile & Change Setup - Method)
    The first setting option that is listed on mine is Enable WiFi-Encription.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks again! dancedroid

    Prime - Thanks again. Got it now. However, as others have posted in other threads... I still cant get wifi off of the tether. The App runs, my computer connects to it, but no wifi signal behind the connection. Did u have success on a bionic with this version of the app?

    I think its cause the verizon hotspot / usb option is still popping up when wifi tether runs. It asks if I want to buy and connect.
