    For those who are picking up a new Maxx, if anyone could test WiFi tethering with PDANet / FoxFi and report back, that'd be awesome. I'll hopefully be getting mine later today, and will report back if no one else has yet.

    No luck either. I used Switch Pro on my Gnex with no problem, but it looks like the toggle won't even turn it on and if I go directly to the hotspot setting, it pops up a screen that says "checking subscription" then comes back with "yoru order could not be completed, contact customer service". I think Vz has locked it down.

    I just got FoxFi USB internet to work, with pda net. The trick was to get the motorola ADB interface to install correctly. This is how I did it:

    Also, I'm using foxfi full version if that makes a difference.

    The hotspot wouldn't work, said phone isn't supported by the app yet.

    I have the full version, I figure its with paying $7 once. It currently does NOT work with 4.13.2 of PDAnet + on 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on my Droid Maxx. I sent an e-mail and I read somewhere on the forums that they are working on it so just keep checking for updates.

    Works perfect using my note 2 on Verizon. Use it all the time for my galaxy tab 7 plus because my time warner internet constantly goes down. Free version worked just as well as the paid. Gave money to the developer because it worked so well.

    Which plan are you on, unlimited or share everything?

    Gave up my Verizon unlimited when I got the note 2. Okay, I wanted to jump out a window when I found out that Verizon wasn't going to cancel the grandfathered unlimited plans as I was led to believe.
    But I use so much media that I am just grateful to have my 64gig card. On the road over 3 hours a day and don't much care for streaming.
    Anyway. 8 phones on my plan with 20 gig share.

    I can confirm FoxFi works on the Note II but it does not work on the Droid Maxx. This should be fixed I'm the future but until the developers figure out the proper coding we will be waiting.

    If you're on the share plan, why do you even need FoxFi, isn't tethering included?

    We are not sure if the new phone can be supported by FoxFi, please use
    USB mode for now while we look for a solution.

    I have the same issue. Its frustrating because the app worked so well on all my devices ...ipad, mac, droid previously. Now I get to look at the phone screen only on the road. If anyone has suggestions or a solution let me know.

    its all about letting them update it, unless they abandoned the Maxx entirely. that would be crappy

    The solution is better than PDANet: http://forums.androidcentral.com/mot...ther-maxx.html

    For anyone who sees "root" and immediately doesn't want to do it, you don't have to leave the phone rooted. You're just gaining access to system files, changing a 1 to a 0 (or vise versa) in a file, and then you can unroot. The result is free access to stock wifi tethering.

    I finally took the plunge last night to root and get my hot spot going. Works great. Very easy to do. Wish I would have done it sooner

    FoxFi (free) works well for me on Verizon using my Moto Droid Bionic Jelly Bean (4.1.2). I have a grandfathered Unlimited plan, download speeds 6 - 12mb, Upload 4 - 8mb. If this continues to work well, I'll upgrade to the paid version.

    That's pretty irrelevant here in the Droid MAXX section. Of course FoxFi/PDANet works on some devices. It currently doesn't work on the MAXX, but root & enable stock tether does.

    The developers asked me to test this out for the Droid Maxx to see if it works. It did, and I hope to see them release it in an update soon. For those who want to try it out early, here you go.

    Install:
    1. Uninstall PdaNet+ and FoxFi from your phone
    2. Install the attached PdaNet+ apk file.
    3. Bring up menu in PdaNet+, select "hash code", enter "MT" and Save.

    Now turn on FoxFi and it will ask you to do a manual step. Do that and the wifi hotspot will be usable.


    Note: The name and security key you have set in the FoxFi app no longer works. you will have to set it in your phone's actual hotspot settings.


    This was successful on Android 4.2.2 with the new software update from Verizon the other day.

    A ) I'm guessing you mean Firefox?
    B ) This thread isn't about Firefox.
    C ) Firefox works fine on my Maxx.
