    So all you have to do is follow the steps at the begining of this thread, because if so than rooting sounds a lot easier than I thought.

    Just a quick flash and you're good to go. Then use Titanium Backup to freeze or delete bloat and you're all set

    Yea man you literally follow the steps, I was really intimidated but found that not only were the instructions easy to use but DroidX included pictures so as you go its easy to make sure you are doing the correct thing!! Takes like 20 minutes and you are done! Afterwards you are rooted,debloated and flying on a Voodoo kernel

    When i try to do the data wipe, it hangs at the android.secure file. I have to do a battery pull and reflash EE4 with Odin afterwards. Any ideas?

    De-voodoo-ed (just in case)
    Wiped Data/Factory Reset
    Wiped Cache
    Wiped Dalvik
    Installed AB5
    Reboot.
    Slow going at Droid eye (patience is a virtue)

    Installed Alpha 5 and it is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet. I'm such an incredible noob that I needed help installing it, or might not have needed, the instructions are so good, but was super happy to have it. I'm building a small shrine to DroidXcon in my living room, the shrine should be out of Alpha and into Beta later today....

    Anyway, my phone was a mess, lots of problems including no data, constant forced closures, etc., this fixed it all!!! This new version has a zillion (well, not quite) little touches I like including beautiful new icons in the toggles in the notification bar for WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, etc. I think if i had to go back to that horrid black orange Halloween theme that comes stock I might puke!

    I don't think I've had a single "forced close" since I installed this, something I had routinely gotten before.

    The only tiny complaint I have is the android guy on the swype keyboard. My eyes stink, one of the main reasons I rooted was so I could make the system font bigger, and the android guy makes it a little harder to see the kb.

    GREAT JOB DroidXcon, donation coming your way so you can be as incredibly helpful to others as you have been to me!!!!

    So I had AB 4.1.1 and Wireless Tether work. I tried GummyCharged 1.7.5 w/EE4 and it quit working. Went back to AB 4.1.1 and it worked again. Just updated to AB Alpha 5 EE4 and it doesn't work again.

    Wondering if anybody else is having this issue?

    My apologies If I've overlooked something here...after successfully flashing the rom it comes up with the VZW OTA to EE4. I was already on EE4 prior to the flash. Of course the OTA can't complete and I have to flash to recovery to reboot. What step did I miss ? Thanks for the help !

    Update to this. Wireless tether does work. Just not on all devices. I'll take the next 30 minutes and test all devices in my house.

    *As far as I can tell, Wireless Tether can only run Ad-hoc.

    Netbook - Successful (downloaded a song)
    PS3 - Couldn't even find it on the scan
    PSP - Found it but couldn't connect to the Charge
    iPod - Found it but couldn't connect to the Charge
    Droid X (wifi only, it's my old phone) - Connects to the network but not to the internet.
    XBOX 360 Slim - Buggy, refreshed the scan a few times to pick it up. The Charge see's it's connected but the XBOX can't. Weird!
    XBOX 360 Phat w/WiFi Adapter - Works! I signed into Live and played an online match of Bad Company 2
    Laptop -

    Just updated from a clean ED1 install and haven't tried tether yet. Hotspot should work with EE4 upgrade though. Why not just use that?

    Just checked and nothing there ? In settings, about phone - My baseband version reads as V.EE4, but the build number reads .ED2 // Think I should just try and reflash ? I went through the thread and didn't see anyone else running into this ?

    I like it! Would be neat if the sound was something like soft static then an old school CRT turning off sound (not sure how to describe that sound but you probably know what I mean).

    Not sure how I feel about the floating google (I'm assuming you put it to fill time while the device is shutting down). Maybe just leave the screen snowy longer?

    Really minor tweaks. Awesome work though!
