    Default Wi-Fi Tether after Root, having issues, anyone?

    I successfully rooted my GN2 with the purpose of running "WiFi Tether for Root Users". I used this phone quite well on my GSIII but have now moved to the GNII.

    Has anyone had any luck with this program? I tried the Automatic profile and a few others but the SSID is simply not showing up on my other devices when searching for a WiFi source.

    TIA.

    From all of the reading I've done, free WiFi tether is a no-go on any phone running Jelly Bean. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.
    That is the only thing I miss about my previous phone...

    Does that include the models that are rooted? I know my GSIII would not take advantage of any of the programs that allegedly allowed tethering, however, upon being rooted, "WiFi for Root Users" worked like a charm. I would hate to hear that the GNII doesn't follow suite!

    Over on XDA it sounds like thew best you can do right now is either tethered via usb or possibly through bluetooth. Root obviously is required.

    I'm not saying you're wrong and I don't know from personal experience being ICS myself, but the developer's page for the app states that it does support Jellybean firmwares. Just ensure you Change Setup-Method in Settings from Auto to Netd-Ndc and Change Device-Profile to Generic ICS/JB. Those are the main ones you need to change to work on Jellybean. Also recommend ticking MSS clamping and Routing fix. Your mileage may vary with the last two Settings changes as I have an HTC Evo 4G, and sometimes with Android different devices may work and others... well, don't. Good luck!

    Umm ok
    Jellybean 4.1.2
    Note ii
    I wifi teather every day
    Im doing it right now to my galaxy tab
    Wifi teahther for root users didnt work for me.
    I use the system tether cuz I am rooted on an import rom for the tmo note ii

    If ur on stock use wifi toggle widget
    Use foxfi to change the settings but not to turn on and off

    Use apn bakcup and restore.
    Copy ur apn down by hand first in mobile settings
    Now u need root to do this
    Once rooted install titanium backup
    Now instal apn bnr
    Now open apn bnr
    Close
    Open titanium, make system app of apn bnr
    Open bnr, disable ics check
    Close
    Open apn bnr
    Backup apns
    Deleat apns
    Now go manualy enter urs again
    Back that up, should be just one now
    You habe now deleated the tether blocking apn that I know is on tmo for instance

    Agreed. This should work for anyone rooted.
