    Default Re: Free WiFi tether for stock Jelly Bean?

    Hi, I just spent a few hours getting my:

    Sprint Galaxy Nexus 4.1.1 Build: JRO03U working with Wifi Tether.

    Here's How I did it.

    Rooted the phone using the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit:
    [GNex TOOLKIT V10.1] Drivers, Backup, Unlock, Root, CWM, Flash, Mods + MORE [SPRINT] - xda-developers

    This software is really nice. I backed all the apps up (including system apps) and then restored after the boot loader / root fix. This saved me a ton of time.

    Next, installed wifi tether from the website (Sprint blocks the direct download in Google Play):
    http://android-wifi-tether.googlecod...3_1-beta14.apk

    Newest version is on the homepage:
    android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting

    Then I changed the settings to:
    Device Profile: Samsung Galaxy Nexus (CDMA/LTE)
    Setup-Method: Netd-Ndc (master)
    Wifi-driver reload: enabled

    This formula worked for my phone. Initially, I would activate the tethering, but the SSID would not appear on my laptop.

    I hope this helps!

    So how did you get the SSID to ever show up? I thought maybe I just had to wait it out, but so far it hasn't shown up on anything (laptop, tablet). Thanks! I feel like I'm close but it doesn't work.

    I have Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.1 JOP40D with bootloader unlocked and rooted (supersu) (on stock rom overlay?) using Galaxy Nexus Toolkit as described in pauljbenedict post. I have the problem too where SSID will not show up on other devices (Windows 7 laptop or Nexus 7).

    Any ideas? There seem to be a lot of wifi tether for root user releases and in each release different options. I've played around with multiple releases and various settings with no luck.

    I have to use PDANet 3.5 on my GS2 and Pdanet Tablet on my Transformer Prime. You start up Pdanet on the phone. It starts Foxfi. Select Bluetooth. Then go to the tablet and start Pdanet Tablet. I was lost until I found this combo
    The above steps does work with PDANet and Jelly Bean on cell phone. I have a Droid 4, Verizon basic data plan, and a Galaxy 2 Tablet. Click later when tablet insists a WiFi connection is necessary and prompt goes away from then on. - Thanks.

    I think your only guaranteed answer is to unlock your boot loader, root & install a custom ROM

    I am on 4.2.1 and cannot get the SSID to show.

    Error log using Setup-Method: Netd-Ndc (master):
    Starting AP ... failed
    Configuring AP... failed

    However I do not get this error when using Netd(master) but still no SSID

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    Hey there, just had to log on, (basically re-register lol) to help you out !


    Firs things first, you'll have to make sure your phone is rooted.

    I couldn't get my phone to broadcast at all, even though it looked like WiFi Tether was running..anyways..

    I tried the settings that "pauljbenedict" posted, and that "xlocohammerheadx" confirmed worked for their LG-LS970 (the post above yours)

    Change the Settings in WiFi Tether:

    Menu -> Settings -> Change Device Profile -> Samsung Galaxy Nexus (CDMA/LTE) *Must be selected*

    Once you've done that it should take you back to the settings screen..

    Change Setup-Method - > Netd-Ndc (master) *must be selected*

    I can confirm this works, as I am currently tethered, had to try it since finally got the phone to broadcast ssid ! and it's working..

    Now the only thing I'm concerned with, is if it will Turn Wi-Fi back on, after I stop tethering, since with the other methods I tried it--WiFi would show as being off even if I clicked it to go back on, it would remain off, only solution then would be to restart phone--which is a small yet annoying price to pay for tether,...albeit it wasnt working then...I'll let you know what happens xD once I go back to my regular wifi

    Hmm..only thing I can think of is, to make sure that you have

    "MMS clamping" checked (scroll down, on settings screen)
    Routing Fix -check-

    These are the things checked on my phone, I mention mmsg clamping as it seems to be something that is commonly mentioned when I was looking for an answer to my problem

    IMHO apps are a terrible way to resolve this issue. If you have a custom recovery, just load this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1658288

    It removes the carrier checks from the native tethering on stock. I used it on my stock loads, but these days I just run mmuzzys rom :-)
