FoxFi Alternative VZW
Good Morning Folks,
I am searching for an alternative to FoxFi. I hate the required lock screen it now needs with its security certificate. It hinders the Touchless Control feature that is a mainstay of the Moto X. I am rooted and have unlimited data. I am coming from a Galaxy Nexus and did not have this added step nor was there TC that it interfered with.
This is an unfortunate change FoxFi made. I have been a very happy paying customer of theirs for almost two years. I am guessing this added step was needed to help them reduce people pirating their app or they didn't think of the ramifications to this devices Touchless Control feature. I know that i can uninstall the certificate and disable the lock screen when not using FoxFi but this is a real pain going back and forth 4-6 times a day, especially when I leave someplace and am driving wishing to use TC. If they develop a work around, I will gladly use FoxFi 100% but for now I am seeking another product.
Thank you all in advance for your thought and ideas.

Re: FoxFi Alternative VZW
It does indeed! Thanks for the tip. Didn't want to root but no problems so far.
BTW... Here is the email from Fox Fi customer service:
You need the lock screen because in the latest firmware update of your
phone, Verizon has blocked WiFi mode and there is no other way around it
except for installing a certificate (which requires the screen lock) to
bypass the tether plan check (again, enforced in the latest firmware
If you find a way to roll your phone back to the previous firmware then
you won't have this issue.
