    Weird

    I just got my N1 (off craiglsist) and it has tethering as an option. WiFi or usb, as far as I can tell the phone hasn't bee rooted. Is this right?

    I was going to root my phone just to get this feature back but not it seems like i don't have to.

    I suggest you root, then grab frf50, it allows your phone to become a wifi hotspot. I use it quite often when I travel, can even stream Netflix and hd movies if your in 3g coverage.
    Look ma! I'm a super moderator, my life has purpose now. :butt1:

    Sorry if it is a dumb question, but why would you need to root if you have 2.2 to do this? Isn't wifi hotspot same as tethering and available in 2.2?

    Rooting is a way to install customized OSes on your nexus one (or any other android device)

    5 reasons to root your Android

    How to unlock and root your nexus one

    I rooted my G1 and was pretty happy about all the additional settings and options that were available. If you don't mind voiding your warranty it's totally worth it.

    I'm not willing to void mine so I'm not going to (for now). It's not such a big deal with the N1, because of vanilla android, but other devices that have a genius button, different UI or added software it would be pretty much the first thing I'd do. I hate using my wifes My touch because of all the stuff T-mobile has added No way to get rid of it.

    The Wifi Tether I use needs no adapters and requires no Bluetooth...
