I'm going to sound really pathetic and I apologize ahead of time but I could really use the help, heck, my job security may depend on this lol. My boss's boss's boss got wind that I new a few things about android/computers/electronics ect. I mean, I've rooted an android device or two before, mostly nook colors and a droid X. So he decided that it would be a great idea to give me his personal phone, the holy grail that the company is tied to and ask me to root it for him and to enable tethering. It's an original Droid, which I've never messed with before. He wants gingerbread on it and he wants to be able to tether his laptop to it. The safety of my career and continued employment pretty much rests on not screwing this up. Oddly. You would think it would rest on something occupationally related right? Anway, I told him to that I'd do some reading and get back to him, though he's expecting me to solve this quickly. My questions: 1) an original motorola droid running (presumably) froyo, can it be upgraded to gingerbread? I know there's a few gingerbread roms out there, would it be advisable to do so? If so, how? 2)Is tethering even an option for this phone? If so. How? The almighty google's not being very helpful and I figured that you guys could give me a clear and concise direction into a how to or something. Thanks in advance for any help!
