    I have looked through here and don't see quite what I am looking for. I have a jailbroken iPad and a rooted Droid X. The Droid is rooted by a program called M4root or something like that. It works great, my ipad recognizes it and is pretty fast.

    My question is this. IF I wanted to reset my iPad and essentially 'unjailbreak" it will my rooted Droid and tethering app still work OR does the iPad HAVE to be jailbroke also for any of it to work? After looking through Cydia and even trying a few things I realized I real don't have a ton of use for apps in general. Almost have a desire to just return to a nice clean OS on the iPad.

    The MAIN reason I jailbroke in first place was to simply take advantage of my data plan on my Droid X without having to pay Verizon to use their wifi hotspot service. I jailbroke my Droid myself but a friend jailbroke the iPad.

    Anyone thoughts or experience with this?

    If the wifi hotspot is on your droid, any iPad, jb or not, should be able to use it...
    Hope that helps.
