    Default FoxFi not working

    Has anyone experienced issues with using FoxFi lately on their Razr Maxx?
    It's been working great up until a week or so ago.
    I now can't get any of my devices to connect, even though FoxFi shows that it's working fine on my phone.
    I haven't been on the forums in a while. Wasn't sure if Verizon put a block on it.

    It still works fine for me. The only issue is my device won't connect initially when FoxFi is turned on. So i turn off FoxFi and immediately turn it back on and wait a bit and it connects and works flawlessly after that.

    It's strange that I can connect my devices to my Maxx using FoxFi while away from home.
    For some reason I can't get them to connect while I'm at home.
    Not sure if the towers in my area are rejecting it, or something inside my home conflicting with the signal.

    I have problems with foxfi when I try to use the security, if I leave it open it works good. I blame that on the crappy wifi of the razor maxx, I still have problems with wifi connections on maxx, especially wpa encryption.

    I had problems as well. What solved it for me was changing the name of connection every now and again. I don't know why but it seems to work.

    You have to reboot your phone. It happens to me all the time but rebooting fixes it.

    Tried that already, as well as making sure wifi was turned off.
    Still not sure why it will connect everywhere except at home.
    Used to connect at home fine in the past.

    Not true, because once you click on enable, it greys out the checkbox making it unable to uncheck.

    I would uninstall it and then try installing it again, that may fix the issue.

    Are you guys running GB because I thought FoxFi was not compatible with jelly bean at all?

    Do NOT upgrade to "Jelly Bean". FoxFi will be blocked.

    Root and use wifi tether. Easier than fixing fox do.
