    I have an LG Optimus "zip" phone from straighttalk and downloaded the foxfi app so I could make a mobile hot spot since I live in the sticks. I can't get it to work! When I try to turn on the hot spot, I am told to use the bluetooth mode instead. My computer is an HP Pavilion running windows 7 but the 2 devices can't find each other. PLEASE can someone link me to a set of instructions? It is frustrating enough to only have dial-up for Internet on the computer. I thought this hot spot would be my answer...

    Your not allowed to do hotspots with St. You have to root to get that to work. But if you do that too much (more than 2 gigs a month) St will shut you down

    It's hard to root, and foxfi dosn't work on every phone. Use pdanet tablet and usb tether.

    It's actually a pretty straightforward root. Google L75C root, the AndroirdArea51 result is your best bet because it has direct downloads of the 2 apps you need to root. I also needed ASTRO File Manager (available from Google Play Store) because the only way the Poot & Ministro II would work. It took me 5 minutes after hours & hours of trying different methods. The real trick is figuring out which ROM to use after it's rooted. Love my phone now though!

    To use gingerbreak, just download the apk file, install it, and click the root button.
