    Hello everyone, I picked up my captivate on launch day and its my first android device, so far I love it!

    Anyway quick question, since AT&T blocks off apps such as PDAnet and WiFi tethering apps of the market place, if I were to root, would I be able to get one of these apps? WiFi tethering is really important to me, I always used it on my old phone.

    Thanks!

    If you just want the tether apps you don't need to root. Just pull out your sim card and use wifi to access the market, the blocked apps will be there.

    Sweet!, Thanks guys the only reason why I wanted to root was to get a tether app, if this is the case, its much easier.

    Thanks!:D
