I'm looking to root my Droid 2 Global to remove some of the VZW "add-ware," and also to use it as a WiFi hotspot. Can anyone reccomend a good ROM to use, and a good hotspot/teathering app?

If you need to root your device, use z4root to root your device. What service are you running on it? I flashed mine to Cricket and the stock WiFi Hotspot app works fine on mine.

I'm not sure what you mean...the only software modification I made was upgrading to 2.3.3. I hope this helps. And let me try z4root.

Z4 only works on Froyo, not GB; if you're on 2.3.3, don't bother with z4. Google "Pete's Root Tools"; it's a program you run on your PC that roots your phone in a few minutes. Also, if you plan on taking updates OTA in the future, DO NOT remove any apps; get an app like ROM Toolbox or Titanium Backup and freeze them (you have to buy the app for that feature).

Cyanogenmod 7.1 is solid for the D2, but there's an Miui from Galnet that uses ICS features and drastically increases battery life, so if that's something you're interested in, check over at Rootzwiki for the threads and files.

As for tethering, I use EasyTether. Paid version lets you access SSL websites, free version does not.

Sounds like me. I get 20 hours with heavy use and light use is 36 hours. Whatever they did in ics to extend battery life, I like it.
