Motorola Droid

Let's face it: A smartphone doesn't really reach manhood until it can achieve the almighty tether -- we'll ignore for the moment whether it's Kosher with your carrier. And you can now tether with the Motorola Droid.

Sure, you previously could use PDANet. And while that's fine for many, it's just not the same. It you want true tethering, however, you're going to have to work for it. A new firmware isn't a small matter, but the instructions are now available, thanks to DroidForums user webacoustics. We'll warn you in advance: Read the instructions. Then read them again. And if you're not sure what you're doing, don't do it. But otherwise, happy tethering!
