    Default Sprint Hotspot Hack

    I was wondering if anyone knew how if I could find somewhere online to hack my Sprint Hotspot to use that for wireless tethering? I have see something about adding a line to the build file online but that did nothing I would tell it to save when I exited but it would not save that line.

    Thanks.

    Just use foxfi. No rooting required and free tethering. Google the program its not in the play store.

    As far as I know there's no way to do that with the sprint hot spot. I'd just wait for a fully functional AOSP or CM9/10 ROM and then use that if you want hot spot functionality that's built in.

    Isn't the sprint hotspot app free to use at the moment anyway?

    I've been using Foxfi like everyone mentions but I can't get it to use my security settings. On version 1.81.3 it always creates an open hotspot called AndroidAP. I updated to version 1.91 and it created a hotspot with the name I gave it and apparent security but my Nexus 7 won't connect to it. Do any other Foxfi users have those problems?

    I have the latest Fox fi and my iPad 3 connects to it using the security password i gave it. Also, the builtin sprint mobile hot spot works fine as well. I do not pay Sprint anything for this .

    It absolutely works well. I'm using it with my Kindle fire right now. Awesome. Why does it work though? Lol. Is this a mess up on sprints part or are they going to nail us for using it?

    Some of us suspect that it is not an oversight and will be "plugged" in an update later. It might well be something to get people "hooked" onto the functionality, then force people to pay later.

    As long as it is left "open" is unlikely to ever cost you anything, so I wouldn't worry about that.

    Foxfi seems like it worked better than the sprint hot spot. Here's some proof: 1. I checked the speed of the sprint hot spot and it said max: 800kbs on Foxfi, it says Max speed: 5mbs 2. My phone would actually overheat when using the sprint hot spot but with foxfi it just gets slightly warm. 3. I was actually paying $10 a month for slower internet, when foxfi is free and fast. Convinced?

    Sprint mobile hotspot is $20 for 2 GB or $50 for 6 GB (totally outrageous). There is no $10 hotspot plan and never has been (to my knowledge).

    They changed the $29 plan to 5GB a while back. Maybe you got grandfathered in for unlimited?

    Please note- it is against the rules to use Foxfi and Sprint is likely to block it at some point. So don't get too used to it. Even if by some miracle it is not blocked, I would use it sparingly and gingerly, because excess data usage will attract attention.

    If you use foxfi, download the foxfi add-on as well. The add on disguises the tethering signature your device.

    Indeed. Of course, it doesn't hide how much data you consume, so still be conservative/smart!

    Is Fox Fi working with the latest update(1.22.651.3)? Just want to check before taking it.

    Were you using that LG Optimus S? If so, 5mbs on the Sprint network is impossible since that is only a 3g phone.
