    The little that I have used the wifi tether it has worked good. I haven't had any issues connecting with my pc, but when I have tried to connect to it using other cell phones (whether they are droids, iphones) they usually don't see it on their wifi. I'm not sure if that is normal or not, but connecting with my laptop or pc's it works great. In fact I'm using it right now just to use.

    I also found that easytether works really well to, kinda nice to have a back up in case I can't get the wireless tether to work. I haven't used them as much as I used to, I used to us easy tether all the time with my Droid 1, my station I was at didn't always have internet access. Since I have been moved I haven't had a station so, no need to have internet access. Hopefully I get a chance in the future to use it more regularly.

    Thanks for your help...

    If anyone knows where I can get the flash for the 2.3 update I would like to know where it is. I have been googling for it and can't find it. Thanks.

    By this statement i'm assuming u are rooted on 2.2.2 FroYo? Is there anyone rooted on 2.3.3 GB? And also, has anyone had any success downloaded bigger files, like <100MB? I'm glad to know that the WiFi Tether functionality works when rooted. But I am curious as to HOW good it works. On my OG DROID it works w/o a hitch, no problems whatsoever (except when people call in it sometimes screws up cus of the no data while on your cell radio) but other than that it basically a Unlimited WiFi Hotspot. Then again there has been so much development for the original Droid, with some custom roms having the feature built in and so forth. I have a Droid X2 and would like to retain this functionality, when needed (sometimes in public it helps me to connect to my ipad, ect.) But i also have just bought the X2 (saleswoman sold me on buy on get one free.) Luckily I am within my 14 days to return it, of course I picked it up 2 days before they started running ads for the Bionic (Doh!) so i am probably gonna take them back to get that (only been waiting since Jan. with a half busted up 20 month old Droid.) Hopefully she can get me buy one get one free something cus thats how i got my OG Droid (and my gf willl be pissed when i take her phone back.)

    Anyway, and firther discussion about how the Wifi Tether is working would be appreciated. I might just root this thing and see what happens. But Id like to at least have some peace of mind that its for a reason other that it to be rooted (whoooh... lol) Thx

    Sorry if i confused you. For all i know you might be on the pre-rooted GB, i just thought since you were asking for the 2.3 flash update that meant you were on FroYo still. I might have made a bad assumption tho. I was actually looking for some input on anyone running the WiFi tether app on GB, either the OneClickRoot Method, Or the sbf method you spoke of. I understand how to sbf back to froyo, and im not sure if thats my best bet or not. Id like to be on GB running the WiFi tether.

    So basicially thats what i was reffering to.. if anyone else was running the tether app on 2.3.3 & what sort of results they have been having. Are you running the tether app on 2.3.3? If anyone is i'd appreciate any feedback on how its working. Thanks for your input.

    Okay I'm Confused Now Too BUT I'm Gonna Correct This. I'm On Eclipse .5 Which Is GB And I Do Know The Modified Wireless Tether App Does Work. I Believe Apps In The Market Also Work Fine Which Don't Require Root. I'm Not Discouraging You From Rooting I'd Love You To Join In So Much Potential That You Can Do. My Statement Stands Whether Your On Froyo Or Gingerbread My SBF Sticky Has Everything You Need To Become Gingerbread Rooted. Hope This Helps And Hope To See You Soon On The Root Side. God That Was Corny. Haha.

    I rooted with GB, I had to SBF back to 2.2, I also have been looking for a flash to the 2.3.3. I keep getting the update notice and keep postponing it but would love to alleviate that and just have a updated root. I will continue looking through the posts and see if I find it. Thanks.

    Sorry I am still really new to this whole rooting. I did searches but never came up with what I was looking for. Maybe I just need to learn what to type better. I appreciate the patience everyone has had, and the help everyone has offered. I am going to try to do the 2.3.3 upgrade, hopefully I will have the success that I had when I rooted the first time.

    Gingerbread isnt that exciting. We always want what we can't have at the moment.

    Proud of my bloated D3, I don't miss unstable roms on my D1 at all!

    You're Right This Sites Search Engine Is Terrible Unfortunately. If I Were You I'd Look Thru The DroidX2 Hacks Thread. Most Of The Time Either I Or Someone Else Has Already Posted New Information Or Answers.
