    Thanks Piizadude. I want to access the internet on my Nexus 7 by WiFi tethering off my Galaxy Blaze 4G. The Nexus 7 will not connect to ad hoc WiFi, so it won't work with Barnacle nor WiFi Tether for root users nor Open Garden. Foxfi is the only wifi tethering app that works with the Nexus 7. I want to root my Blaze, but not at the cost of losing my wifi tethering to the Nexus 7.

    If you root you'll have better options than foxfi. I'm still waiting to pull trigger on rooting so I can have hotspot feature without letting sprint steal my money for something that should be included in my regular monthly payment.

    Thanks yankees USA. What better options did you have in mind? At first, Foxfi worked well with my new Blaze. I was able to connect my Nexus 7 easily. It worked like a charm. Then I updated the Blaze to ICS, and Foxfi wouldn't work anymore. I then rooted the Blaze, and Foxfi still didn't work. I tried all the other WiFi tethering apps to no avail. My Nexus 7 just wouldn't "see" them at all. I screwed up the Blaze trying to get back to stock. A Factory Reset fixed it. So now I'm back to square one, stock 2.3.6, and Foxfi works well again. So, I want to root the Blaze, but I don't want to lose my Foxfi connection. Does anyone know if rooting will screw up Foxfi?

    Rooting should do nothing to it unless foxfi specifically rejects it.

    Why couldn't you use Wifi tether? It has far less issues surrounding it than foxfi

    WiFi Tether does not work with the Nexus 7 tablet. The tablet does not see it.

    ok I am being stupid. There is a solution to the problem of ad hoc mode but I havent looked into it that much.

    Back to the original question, It should work without a problem if you are rooted. Everything that I am seeing says it is fine, and rooting really does nothing to the phone itself. I would just say give it a go...

    No not yet. I've been distracted with getting some issues ironed out on the charge - and with this phone actually. The strat is still on the to-do list though.

    I don't have this phone, I have the SG3, but what other tethering options are there besides Wifi Tether?
