so im kinda hating my droid2. i was using the first droid for almost a year without rooting.

but i think im going to root my droid2. there are a billion apps that you CANT uninstall (blockbuster, NFS) crap like that.

the email shortcut now only lets you have one email assigned to it, on the droid you can put multiple emails in there...

yea i saw that site earlier.

i didnt have a problem with my unrooted droid. but this droid2 feels very restrictive, there are atleast 3x as many apps that are always running in the background that i dont need. sure the clocks are faster than the droid, but not with that many things going on at once...

The Droid 2 always looked cool to me because with the Froyo update, didn't you guys get wireless hotspot? The original Droid (what I have now) didn't get that and it was something that looked pretty cool to mess with.

Connect laptop to wall -> connect droid to laptop -> connect droid to internet.

Internetz everywhere!

But really, is the Droid 2 that bad?

Wireless tethering working here as well, I use it to broadcast internet for my iTouch when im not home cause for whatever reason browsing on the droid even OC'd to 800mhz is a laggy exerpeience. Typing is always like 2 characters behind and god forbid I need to erase what i wrote, scrolling lags. Doesn't do that on the iTouch so that's where wifi comes in

You all using the barnacle wifi tether app?
