Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Motorola Droid finally rooted! The Motorola Droid is the first Android 2.0 with a superb high-resolution screen, a slim shape, a physical qwerty keyboard and Google's latest build of Android (the operating system). The web is richer. Photos are sharper. Videos pop. It has the most advanced browser with a blazing-fast processor and 3G speed for faster search. It has the world's thinnest QWERTY slider at 13.7mm. It can help you navigate turn-by-turn. It has a 5MP camera with a flash, plus loads of great camera features and a DVD-quality recorder to capture all the richer, bigger, wider experiences you're going to have.
Motorola Droid is coming with the built-in media player that supports AAC, H.263, H.264, MP3, MPEG-4, WAV, WMA, eAAC+, OGG, AMR WB, AMR NB, AAC+, MIDI. Unfortunately, there is no syncing software to help you manage and transfer your music. As it is right now, you have to use the old drag-and-drop method using the USB cable or sideload them using a microSD card.
Of course, you can also download songs via the Amazon MP3 store. The store allows you to browse by album, song, artist, or genre. You can download the DRM-free songs over Wi-Fi as well as Verizon's 3G network, though the Droid advises you switch to Wi-Fi when possible since it's faster.
The bad is, Motorola Droid is not capable to run and read your DVD disc. And, for videos, even it supports MP4, AVI is still the main stream of video container right now. Then, what can you do if you already have a collection of digital video content in AVI, MKV MOV, MOD, M2TS, etc, or on DVD disc, and you are eager to watch them on your lovely Motorola Droid?
Below, I will demonstrate how to rip DVD to Motorola Droid, convert videos to Motorola Droid.
Software you will need
Since Motorola Droid is not compatible to read AVI, WMV, MPEG-2, etc, here we will need a 3rd software to assist us to convert video format. Among those video converters, I would like to take Aimersoft Video Converter Pro for its forward-straight GUI and full functionalities. With Aimersoft Video Converter Pro we can easily finish the DVD conversion and video conversion for Motorola Droid.
1. "Add Video" or "Load DVD"
If you are to rip DVD, then you are freely either choose load DVD Folder, ISO files or IFO files.
2. Select output format by clicking "Profile" drop list
Be noted that Motorola Droid is able to playback videos with resolution 720 x 480 (D1), frame rate 30 fps. Below is the snapshot that shows where you can set the video parameter.
3. Set output destination through "Output".
4. Edit DVD movies/ Videos if needed.
Under the "Edit" menu, you can split & merge your files, discard the black bar, add watermark.
Be noted that, if it’s the DVD movie you are to edit, you need to choose the "DVD title" to process to the edit panel.
5. "Start" conversion.

The Android Wi-Fi Tether application turns your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot--essentially aMiFi--in one tap. The catch? You have to gain root access to your phone, a multi-step process that uses an unofficial Android add-on which can brick your phone if applied incorrectly. Rooting Android is doable for geeks and hackers with experience soft-modding hardware, but it's not something most users could (or should!) do.
Method 2: Tether Android with Proxoid (Free, no root required, some configuration If you don't want to gain root but know enough to get around the command line and use proxy servers, the Proxoid Android app can tether your phone for free.
Method 3: Tether Android with PdaNet ($30, no root required, minimal configuration Finally, the PdaNet Android application lets you tether Android using an app on the phone plus simple software you install on your computer
