    Umm foxfi won't work on any HTC phone period... It says so as soon as you try to use it on an htc with a super big warning box that pops up. Only Bluetooth tethering works and good luck getting that to work.

    Might finally have to Root. Not expecting another android update by the time i'm ready to buy a new phone anyway.
    I don't know what YOU expect or how quickly you are ready for a different phone (the Evo LTE is pretty new). But I expect there to be another update in a perhaps a month or less to address problems introduced in the last update.

    ??? Your phone "before" the update is not the same as your phone "after" the update.

    Hmm wasn't trolling or being a negative Nancy. I'm sorry if I offended anyone in any way with my comment, that's what foxfi tells me when I try to use it on my evo 4g.

    Sorry but worked great for me before. Knew it wouldn't after the update at 1st, (or perhaps ever), but it did before.

    HTC phone blocks FoxFi & PdaNet tethering?

    Check out this thread. I found a solution and posted it here.

    Foxfi doesn't work with jelly bean except in tether mode, and I just bought Foxfi before the update the only way is tether but you have to download Pdanet and put it on your pc and install it and then activate tether on your phone and then do the same on your pc and you are on the web, that's how I am writing this right now. LOL

    There is no "solution" there, only a totally different, somewhat functional alternative. Open Garden is not WiFi tethering/hotspot. It is bluetooth only. It doesn't support Linux. It doesn't support iOS. It doesn't work with all applications under Android. It also apparently gives the user zero control over who can or cannot connect to their device.

    There is also nothing "open" about "Open Garden". It is 100% proprietary and closed-source software. It is more of a "Walled Garden", in reality.

    I suppose I should be been more specific that it's a good enough solution for me. As for saying that it doesn't support WiFi hot spot, I find that 1/2 accurate. The data that is transferred between the devices can be transmitted via WiFi, within that "closed" environment. Sure I can't use many apps that require a data connection, but my phone will suffice for those functions.
    My interest was to be able to use the Web on my Note 10.1 through my Evo. This it does well and that's all I really need on the go.

    I am glad it is working OK for you. Just call me bitter/disappointed.

    Well android is open source so we can always rewrite the OS as we see fit.

    If only I was that good.

    I've been hunting around for an answer, but I can't seem to find the minimum requirements for it anywhere. I suppose just give it a try and see for yourself. Worst case it just won't work or won't let you download it or install.

    In terms of Android version, it does meet the requirements--The original Evo maxed out at Gingerbread, and FoxFi support is from Froyo and up. However, it does mention compatibility issues with HTC phones, so it might not work.

    I never tried it on my original Evo, because by the time they released FoxFi, I had already rooted and was using Wireless Tether, so I can't tell you if it works or not.

    I understand the way you feel though believe me. The only regret I have for upgrading to 4.1 was the loss of foxfi. It's incredibly hard to replace without root and I enjoyed using it on your BlackBerry PlayBook as well.

    The Android bug that prevents some apps from working properly over Open Garden is being addressed by the Android team. They said around 6 months for a fix about 2 months ago.... so hopefully that means within the next year.

    Netflix/Veetle/streaming apps work on my One V's jelly bean.. but that may be because I'm rooted & on a custom rom.
