    Hey guys. I am not a total rooting noob. I rooted my original Droid and then have been rooting and installing roms on dx for a while.

    I just left my Droid x liberty gb.08 and got the Droid charge today.

    So what's good about rooting the Droid charge ?

    1. Does wifi tether work?
    2. Is battery better?
    3. Are there any downfalls?

    I have rooted with the Voodoo Kernel, and I am quite happy with it.

    I have not gotten the Wireless tether to work yet, but I haven't tried hard. It is probably user error.

    Pros:
    It shows a significant increase in battery life, and in load times. I don't know why, but it also seems to switch menus smoother.
    Could be placebo.

    Cons:
    The droid eye splash screen looks weird. It goes too fast and skips frames. I think this is because of the faster loading times.
    I can't really think of any other downfalls.

    Rooting is totally worth it and glad to have you join the ranks of Charge owners! It opens a whole new world of possibilities and lets this phone do what it was meant to do. :icon_ lala: As a note: you've asked the tether question in several posts now...no need to ask the same question in multiple places.

    Sorry for asking the same question. I just feel like I haven't been able to get a straight answer on if wiring tethering works.

    On the Droid x it doesn't anymore. Verizon locked it down. Even though I literally pay Verizon over $400 a month between fios, Droid, ipad.
    And I barely use any data.

    I don't watch videos. I just want access to email on my laptop. LOL.

    So the reason I keep asking is I know for a fact that wifi tethering does not work on Droid x with gingerbread anymore even after heavy tweaking.

    So does it work? Lol
