I'm very much a noob at the whole rooting procedure, but I've done my homework and understand the basics, unfortunately I am using a Mac and my options seem limited. (and yes, I've searched the forums, and I haven't found any satisfactory answer to my question) Here it is: is there a way to root to 2.1 (I am using a motorola droid with unrooted 2.1), WITHOUT having to use crossover/vmware, etc. to access windows files? It seems crazy to me that nobody would have figured out how to do this yet, but I simply can't find any method online for doing so (and I've spent literally hours researching it and meticulously reading tutorials). The only reason I want to root my droid is so I can use wi-fi hotspot (I was going to wait for the 2.2 update but I heard they will no longer be including wi-fi tethering). The fact that there seems to be no way to do this without hours of downloading and complicated technical tinkering is honestly making me consider ditching android altogether. Somebody give me another option, as I really like my droid!
