    Has anyone been able to do this on a Droid with the 2.1-update 1?

    Anxious to hear

    Has anyone tethered thier Droid running 2.1 to the Ipad? Is there a way to do it without rooting?

    Thanks

    As it stands right now, you have to go back to 2.0.1 and then upgrade to a rooted version of 2.1. Seems like kind of a PITA, but if you really want it, it can be done.

    Rooting my Droid

    I have not rooted my phone yet. It's at the 2.1 build. The video contained in the link above does not say you have to roll back to v2.0 before rooting. Why would I need to do this and what would happen if I just rooted from V2.1?

    Unless there has been a 2.1 root released today, you need root access to run barnacle and you don't have root access with just 2.1 fw

    I'm doing wireless tether with my rooted droid.. Im worried that verizon will charge me for tethering but oh well... I just couldn't justify paying for the 3G radio version of the iPad when i already had my droid rooted. Has anyone went over the 5gb per month on tether? I know they say it's unlimited but I still don't trust them
