    I'm hearing the Wifi Tether isn't playing well with Jelly Bean... (never tried Roam Control).

    Have you tried the Foxfi app? It works on my pals unrooted Evo 4gLTE.

    Foxfi doesn't work over wifi. One person I believed got it to work over Bluetooth but I couldn't get it to work with my iPad either way.

    did you try to adjust the settings in the Wifi Tethering app? Change it to "generic ICS/JB" and see if that works for you

    I haven't tried it myself (yet), but the Wifi Tether app itself hasn't been updated to work with Jelly Bean yet.

    I really haven't felt the need to root yet. The phone is pretty amazing right out of the box. I'm loving the battery life.

    Themes are applied normally by flashing a custom ROM that is themed to a developers specific vision.

    Hi there but what exactly is "force roam?" Is it something that gets ur phone better network signals? If so I might root my phone. Been thinking about rooting for a long time but just haven't done it yet. Thanks

    You might want to try a launcher like "Go Launcher" and then you can download and apply different themes as u like. Try looking up Go Launcher and Go Launcher themes. Hope that helps.

    Force roam is forcing your phone to switch to a roaming tower from one of sprints roaming partners. In most cases it's a Verizon tower. You force your phone to use a Verizon prl. In the note 2 you were able to force roam without root but after the latest ota update they disabled that feature.
    Now you have to root to be able to force roam. First thing you need to do if you have never done it on the note 2 is watch the force roam video on the note 2 from the www.qbking77.com website. Once you know how to do it then you can root and install a zip file that will undo the block sprint included in the latest ota update.

    I rooted mine with my Mac using the terminal option with cwm recovery. It only took about 5_8 minutes. Only problem is that method doesn't allow nandroid backup. I recommend using twrp. Check out galaxynote2root.com. they have both methods and more. Have fun and as always be careful with rooting.
