Thank you so much... so basically the same hold true with my TP2 from Verizon Good thing I flashed to a ROM that enabled free tethering

Do you have a link or two, where I can conduct research on Android 2.2, and all the awesomeness that comes along with it (since I'll be going Android very soon!), including the special list of programs that I install once I root the X (or Droid 2)? THANKS SO MUCH

Re: 1-Click Droid X Root/UnRoot

So VZW says that they won't ship till the 18th, now do you think that by the time that phones ships, they will have patched the one-click root? I ask because I bought one for full price from ebay, then found out after the fact I could get one from VZW at the 2 year price. I ordered it and am debating which one to put on ebay, but if I can't root the legit one, I will keep the ebay one instead.

I'm getting the Droid 2, which comes out on the 12th, just waiting for the Pre Order. But I wanted to chime in, and say I'm sure if they do 'patch' it, another root program will come out literally moments after that!

It may say they will ship on the 18th, but don't believe it. I ordered mine Friday and it said will ship by the 18th. Yesterday I got the e-mail saying my order was completed with a FedEx shipping code and when I track it my DroidX will be here Wednesday!!!!

Re: 1-Click Droid X Root/UnRoot

Thank you very much for the root.

Being a newbie to this, however, I can't seem to figure out how to get the tether to work. I have "Superuser Permissions" as an application, however, I didn't find tethering in the WiFi setting. Am I missing something or is there some place I can get additional information?

Re: 1-Click Droid X Root/UnRoot

You have to download & install the wireless tether from the marketplace.

It will not work if the phone is not rooted first.

So rooting should come before ANYTHING else, once we purchase the phone? Based on the usual time line for all previous releases over the past year or so, how long is it until a Root is available with the Droid 2 is launched on August 12th?

I'm most interested in the wifi tethering in "Infrastructure Mode" meaning that devices that can't connect to "Ad-Hoc" hotspots will be able to get online, such as the PS3 - which will FINALLY allow me to play on-line and watch Netflix streaming (without having to buy a $160 cradle point mobile router, or go through 100 steps to share my laptop's wifi)!

PS: Where should new D2 owners keep their eyes peeled for the first 'official' Root for the phone?

Ad-Hoc only for Tethering.

OMJ a moderator pointed me to an Android tethering app that supports Infrastructure Mode here Phones with Native 3G Hotspot Capability... tether to Gaming Consoles?

He was playing Call of Duty simply by broadcasting his EVOs WiFi!

Plus this app in the store says it can share with PS3, but maybe this one is through a PC? http://store.ppcgeeks.com/product.as...4&n=EasyTether

Re: 1-Click Droid X Root/UnRoot

yeah, Easy tether supports sharing with PS3 through a PC, and wifi tether doesn't support infrastructure on the X yet.
