    I have read some of the context of the **Official** Droid X encrypted bootloader and efuse thread but my knowledge level on these type things is about a 3 with 10 being Expert. I just replaced my Droid with a DX. I used Pdanet on the Droid with no issues. I have also installed Pdanet on the Incredible for a friend and it works great. My DX came in late evening on the 16th so I have had a couple days to play with it and I love it. I only use the Pdanet tether on rare occasions but If the DX will not allow tether via Pdanet than I may have thought more about ordering the Incredible instead. This is my first Post so all advice is greatly appreciated.

    It does, that's one of the first things I tried when I got my DX.

    I looked for USB debugging on the DX and couldnt find it. Doesn't that have to be activated to connect? I didnt reload Pdanet on my laptop. Maybe I need to uninstall and reload and try again.

    I've used PDAnet every day since the 15th and it works perfectly for me.

    I deleted the software from the handheld as well as the laptop, reinstalled all. Still the same. When I click on the "connect" tab I get a "phone not connected" message.

    This is a MAC not a PC.

    I'm using PdaNet tethered to my Droid X to reply to you now, so, yes; it will work.

    I can confirm PDANet works on a Mac and a PC as I have both.

    I figured out how to use PDAnet with an older Mac - its under a different thread here (see post #11):
    Nonrooted tethering with a Powerbook G4?

    If you have one of the more recent Intel-based Macs then PDAnet should run fine, they have the Mac client you can download free on their webpage. For G4 Macs see my instructions in the link above. If you have an earlier Mac then you may have to experiment on your own...

    Is it possible you are selecting the 3G Mobile Hotspot?

    This is exactly my problem. I don't have the 3G Hotspot turned on and don't wish to pay that additional charge. I thought PDANet would allow me to connect via Bluetooth and avoid that charge.

    It will. The Hotspot doesn't have anything to do with PDAnet.

    I use PDAnet occasionally.
