    Default Newest AirDroid has wifi teathering that seems to work with EVOLTE

    Latest AirDroid from Play store (ver 2.0.7.2) from Jan 9 seems to work on my EVOLTE. I only have 3G on Sprint at home, so it's pretty slow, but someone with 4G should try it and report back to the forum. Nice to have option for wifi tethering. Seems to work with my iPad and my Lenovo laptop. You have to go into Sprint hotspot and set the password and make sure it is the same as the one in AirDroid (you can choose any password so long as it is at least 8 characters.)

    Interesting

    Doesn't work for me. I can connect with my N10 tablet, and get an IP address and a solid signal but nothing ever loads on my connected device. It shows a notification in the tray on the EVO LTE that I am a connected user and that it is on and ready. I did go into AirDroid and set the WPA2 password to 123456789 and did the same on the Sprint Hotspot settings. Tried it twice.... nada.

    Are you sure you are not a rooted EVO or something? Or have a Sprint Hotspot service activated? Or perhaps the loophole has already been closed?

    I would also be very concerned- looks to me like AirDroid is just acting as a front-end to Sprint's Evo Hotspot app, not a replacement or work around for it. Even if it worked, if it is somehow still using components of Sprint's Hotspot, Sprint might know this.

    You are correct. I am not rooted. On both 3g and 4g LTE there is very little transfer of data (there is some, but it is really slow and pages timeout.) Keep hoping...

    It connected, but had little or no data transfer. I'm on 4G so it's not a network problem. I un installed the app.

    I am fairly sure all they are doing is just calling the Sprint Hotspot app. It is not a tethering program.
