Cool [Q] What tethering options does a Droid Mini on 4.4.4 have? Does PDANet work?

I have Unlimited Verizon data, and haven't bought a new phone yet, but I would like something faster than my Droid Razr M. The Droid Mini looks perfect, and is around $160 lightly used. My only reservation is that it might be on 4.4.4 so I would lose the ability to root or tether. Is there currently any way? Thanks.

Check the main ultra board, there is some info about obtaining root & wp off for 4.4.4.

I believe USB tethering still works on 4.4.4 w/o root

Pda net works. If its already on 4.4.4 you cant root unless unlocked BL.
