No Hotspot, No Tethering for Motorola Droid
Tethering Free For All!
DroidMod was one of the original dev groups for the motorola droid. They used to be called SholesMod. Back during 2.01 they had the first "Rom Manager" like app for the Droid that would basically automate the rooting and recovery process for the phone. they kinda dropped off the radar for 2.1 because they wanted to build their own source tree like CM did. But they released a new beta of their update tool that will root 2.1 for you. and then you can flash Clockwork with Rom manager and get your favorite rom.
Are you familiar with the software yourself? Is it really that simple? Does it require the use of my laptop? Or can I do it completly within my Droid?
So is Vzn lying? The Droid has the hardware ability to do wifi tethering doesn't it?
Here is the link to the new updater:

Once you Root, you just download ROM Manager(I highly recommend buying it, well worth the 4 dollars or so), Flash Clockwork Recovery Mod, make a Backup of your current phone (one of the options.. this will allow you to always go back to this "Clean" rooted 2.1 image if anything goes wrong.
And then you can start flashing roms like a mad man.
This still voids your warranty and all that good stuff, but as others have mentioned, if you use a little thought going into it, it's almost hard to totally bric...
I did a warranty claim recently myself. After only 4 months of having my Droid the keyboard was crap!!! Keys were coming loose, and even coming off. The touchscreen would act all wacky while plugged into the charger. I received my warranty replacement last Tuesday. Verizon received my original Droid last Friday.

Do you consider yourself to be advanced/geek? Or a regular more average user?
