    Have you unlocked your bootloader, maybe s-offed, or flashed TWRP?

    Sprint blocked 3rd party Wifi-Tether apps from working in the new JB update even if you're rooted.

    Second, OTG cables have only worked on my phone if I'm running and AOSP based ROMs, like SuperJELLY or Cyanogenmod 10.1

    Maybe, just maybe this ROM would be able to fix your needs. The MeanBean Series by MikeyXDA is a great ROM. Wifi Tether is pre-installed and works perfect. It has ElementalX's kernel and it might just work for OTG cables (I havent tested it out yet). It also runs Stock Sense with a few upgrades.

    If you are willing to install ROMs I would follow and learn from wwjoshdew on youtube for learning how to install ROMs and unlocking all the stuff to.

    I have a couple of questions. I'm also rooted and running MeanBeam by Mikey. I wasn't the one who rooted my phone and now I'm a bit apprehensive of upgrading.
    (1) How do I know if I'm s-off or on?
    (2) I have an OTA update notification. Do I take this update? If so, once it downloads then what?
    Here are my det's

    -Running MeanBean_1.7 (I know sooo...far behind. That's why I want to update)
    -Android 4.1.1
    -PRL 25012
    -Kernel: 3.4.10-g014d33eroot@abm030 #1 SMP PREEMPT
    BaseB - 1.12.11.1119
    Build - 3.15.651.16 CL124461 release-keys

    I just need a step by step process on how to update this thing. Video, tutorial, anything

    I went to XDA, but there are soo many posts and all for those that have already been doing the rooting process and are familiar with it. I need rooting in lamens terms

    Thanks in advance!

    With your phone powered off. hold the vol.down and the power button together and it will boot into the bootloader. Up at the top you'll see something like ship-s-on or off and thats how you can tell.
    As far as the OTA update i think Mikek uses a app to push updates for his rom. If you take it, it should download the latest version and either install it or ask you if you want to install it. Hope this helps, if you need more help just ask.

    The wifi tether app from TrevE works great with JB and sprint but you need to be rooted.

    Just go into the ota updater and accept the update. Wipe the cache/ dalvik cache and th you'll be good. After it downloads it should immediately ask if you want to install, it will then boot straight into recovery and flash the updated zip. Keep in mind that if your making a big jump in versions, or this is your first time trying, go into TWRP and back up your Rom

    Hey Benny! Thanks for the response. Totally appreciated! Ok so I did that and it says I'm s-on. Now what? Do I take the OTA update that says "This will update your ROM (MeanBean) to version MeanBean_3.06"? If so, once it's downloaded what do I do? Restart into bootloader? Also my Titanium backup is saying that it "could not acquire root privileges" ? Does that mean my phone is locked somehow? Thanks for your help.

    I think the update app will download the update and ask if you want to update
    As far as TB im not sure, Maybe open your superuser app and see if the binary updates, This will happen if it recently updated
