    Remove the battery. Reinstall the battery and turn on your phone. It should start just fine.

    Did you have the com and number in the id com block? Could be as simple as drivers or cable. Just because you can transfer files by usb doesn't always mean it will work with this. Also try downloading the kit or files. If you have Samsung kies installed on your phone or computer remove it.

    Can you get into recovery? Volume up, power and home buttons. Release all as soon as you see the Samsung screen.

    Thank you Skunkape60! I have read all the posts that I can find about how to get the WiFi visable to my laptop. One of the things mentioned is to remove Kies, so I downloaded SuperSU, but still do not see an option to delete Kies. The point of all this is to get the WiFi Tether working. I have tried so many different variations changing device profile, device setup, WiFi-driver reload, access control, MSS clamping, Routing fix, USB debugging, etc....I just cannot find the right combination ...Can you point me in the right direction please...Thank you!!

    Try this version of wifi tether... Remove your current version with titanium backup and install this one.It is an experimental version that isn't linked in the wifi thread. If this works for you I will add it to the wifi tethering thread.

    Skunkape60,
    The WiFi Tether TrevE Mod version is recognized by other devices, but unable to connect. The computer says to reset the wireless router. Not sure what that is all about, but more importantly the tether keeps shutting down. It says "What the heck, your phone takes back control over the wifi interface" and shuts it down....making progress, but still not dialed in...any thoughts...
    Thank you

    I don't understand this. Your phone can't be connected to wifi and tether at the same time. you can only tether 3g or lte... So yes, when you start wifi tethering it will turn off wifi. Or am I misunderstanding this.....

    When I launch the tether, it does terminate the wifi reception on the phone. The tether is transmitting a signal and recognized by the laptop. The laptop however is unable to connect to the tether signal. In addition, the phone keeps shutting the tether operation down....I hope this makes more sense...
    Thank you.

    While I don't tether I have had no problem getting this to work without changing but 2 settings. What rom are you using. I will load it and see what I can come up with.....

    device profile - Samsung Galaxy S3
    Setup method is on auto.(Default)
    wifi driver reload 2 is checked.

    If you continue to have issues try using the support page that was listed in my thread.

    Skunkape, any ideas why the tether might be shutting down/I think the phone is terminating the program....like I said, there is a message after tether shuts down and the message is 'what the heck, your phone takes back control over the wifi interface'....wonder what might be happening...I think if we can keep tether running, then I can figure out why the laptop will not connect.....
    Thank you very much ...

    Ok, I changed the device to s3, setup is auto and reload 2 is checked. The tether seems to be stable. My other s3 will not connect to it and it says authentication error....any ideas why this might be happening? The laptop will not connect either....

    This is a hacked version for jellybean. Why are you trying to use this if you have ics? Just download the Wi-Fi tether from the playstore.

    Skunkape, Got it!! Went to the WiFi Tehter Support......changed the items below and low and behold, it is working at the moment....
    -Device-Profile: Leave this on auto (default)
    -Setup-Method: For GS3: Netd-ndc, E3D use SoftAP (auto should have right defaults, might need to force)
    -Netdndc Max Client Cmd: Required for GS3ish devices. If not enabled you will likely get an AP but cannot connect.
    -MSS clamping: on (default)
    -Routing fix: on (default)

    Actually, I do not know if I have ics or what? What I can tell you is after rooting, and after loading the experimental wifi tether you put up and getting the proper settings from the WiFi Support.....it appears to be working will now....

    Adding my deep gratitude for Skunkape's contributions to the forum. Thanks to you I'm now rooted, my custom binary count is set to zero, and I've got WiFi tether running. Also Titanium Backup, an Ad Blocker, and SetCPU.

    I have to agree that this root process is easier than anything I've seen except, perhaps, unrEVOked on the EVO 4G. Thanks again.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
