It's funny how adding a new toy to the family changes your needs. I have for quite some time been using Easy Tether as my de facto tethering application. It's one of the few apps I paid actual money for. While it works great on PCs though it's utterly useless with my tablet. Remember in a previous post where I said that without WiFi access your tablet experience is severely hindered. Well you never really feel it until you're stuck without the access.
In response to this, I decided it was time to root my main phone: my Motorola XPERT.
Now naturally this didn't go as well as I had hoped. For some strange reason my phone sometimes changes my time forward by 4 hours. I'm guessing this has to do with Sprint homebase being somewhere in the mid-west. True story: My bank called me one time because they wanted to know why my online account was being accessed somewhere in the mid-west. It seems to be a minor annoyance right now and it might actually phase itself out *crossing fingers*. The other annoyance is the built in Sprint app that pops up a warning telling me it can't connect because the service isn't enabled. Sprint's already collecting an extra $10 a month from me for "premium data" so there's no way I'm letting them charge me for anything else. Again, it's an annoyance I can live with.
Question now is what else do I want to mess with now that my phone is rooted?
