    Ok, got the D2 today, need to root.

    Is there a one click, yes I am that lazy.

    Is there a hotspot or wireless tether for D2 like there was for rooted D1?

    Is there anything special I can do with a rooted D2 that I couldn't with D1?

    Is there an app to make it easier to permanently remove the hideous bloatware?


    Thanks thanks.

    :welcome: to the Forum - check out z4root in the Market for "one touch" Root Access

    Hi, Thanks, I did look at zroot, but I thought I read is was temporary and only lasted until the next reboot, is that correct?

    I have an Original Droid so I haven't used it personally but I have only heard good things about it - even from some of our Staff who are D2 owners

    Run it download rom manager and use it to install a custom rom.

    The only rom I ever install is to OC, but Unstable Apps seems to have an OC program I was looking at trying.

    What about a hotspot? The phone has a link to start one, but I think that requires a monthly fee, or is it free with the D2?
