    I'm just looking for simple to start. All I want (well, for now :D) is Wifi tethering ability. Will be doing this on my Droid first, then the wife's.

    Maybe dig into Rom's down the line, but not really needed right now.

    Rooting 2.1 Stock ROM is actually fairly easy! RSD Lite will be your best friend if you happen to mess everything up some how

    Yes, I have PdaNet already. But I ordered a couple iPads, and want to be able to tether via WiFi occasionally.

    Worked great, easier than I thought. Already got Barnacle Tether app from market. Should do what I need.

    I should stop now and not look for other apps. Should. stop. Looking.....:D

    Wait until you not only get into flashing new ROMs but also benchmarking different kernels, including Quadrant, LinPack, etc....

    Not to mention testing these ROMs / kernels combinations in various scenarios (think subjective benchmarking)....

    You won't have a life left.

    Now will the typical Verizon update wipe this out?

    If you mean an big OTA update like 2.1 was, then, yes, if you or the ROM you are using didn't disable OTA upadtes. However, you can always flash back as far as you need to go, in order to regain root access.

    I would not worry too much about the next update. Verizon can do whatever they want to, someone will find a way around it. Just a matter of when. Look what happened to 2.1! Verizon can keep doing what they want, I say it's a fun challenge to look for the holes
