    I got a USB to micro USB adapter so that I can connect my Droid X to my XOOM. They connect just fine. Now, is there a way to USB tether my data network on my Droid X over to my XOOM? PDAnet and EasyTether seem to only work to computer as such with the clients being Windows or Mac specific. Also, I am asking if this is possible without rooting? Thanks in advance. I'll also post this on the Droid X forums for those that might have the answer over there too. Thanks for reading and any help in advance.

    If your X is rooted why not just tether wifi instead of USB? Of course if your not rooted that's another story.

    No, I'm not rooted. The reason I ask is cause I am looking for a way to do it by not rootinh. Thanks again.

    Why wouldn't you want to root? Rooting would enable to wireless tethering, faster phone, etc. Especially for your situation, just the wireless tethering would be worth it. Then you can take your xoom anywhere.

    its not difficult to root either, apps like z4root make it 1 click and there ya go, you can download wifitether and be good to go!

    Unless its a company phone which I could understand.

    There wouldnt currently be a cabled method since it does not support DUN yet, but it does support bluetooth DUN, which you can walkthrough easily here.....

    The fascinate may be able to tether. I didn't take the time to google a solution. The Bt tether was very easy with three different DX phones. I was also able to video chat with Google Talk thru Bt with my Dx. Slightly choppy. Great backup solution.
