    My main reason to jailbreak Ipad-3g on IOS4.2.1 is to use it as a WiFi hotspot because I do not have landline. What is the best way to go?
    Thanks

    I rooted one of my droids and installed an ap called barnacle to provide wireless tethering through my Droid (on Verizonwireless).

    I'm trying to remember right now which root application I used and I think it was SuperOneClick (SuperOneClickv1.5.3-ShortFuse).

    If you google this, I'll bet you get everything you will need to root the Droid, and it is really simple. I think I had to do it twice to get it to take, but I'm not sure I had to - I just didn't understand all the indications. The instructions should all be there. I'm sorry I'm not more of a nerd to talk you through all this, but I don't think you will have any problems. I will say that one thing that gave me the nerve to do this (I was pretty nervous about it, but I didn't need to be) was that I have two droids: the Moto Droid ("1") [which I rooted] and a Droid X that will stay factory fresh.

    Good Luck,
