I've read many posts about rooting for people like me who are new and/or hesitant, but I still have questions. I'm not interested in custom ROMs and fundimentally changing the look of th OS. It's not all that important to remove bloatware that I can just as easily ignore. My concern is loosing any of my phone's functionality that I've grown accustomned to. I want it to stay the same with the addition of allowing me to tether to my HP Touchpad. Is there an easy root method that doesn't drastically alter the TB and permit tethering?
