    Default Wireless Tethering on the Verizon Note 2

    OK, so now I'm rooted using the root method at XDA at the link:

    [GUIDE][VZW Edition]How to Root the VZW Galaxy Note II and more! - xda-developers

    Phone works perfectly without a hiccup or loss of responsiveness.
    Very appreciative of their work!

    "First and formost all credit goes to MrRobinson and Beanstown101!!" and to Droidstyle for putting it together!

    Now I need a way to get Wireless Tethering up and running. Anyone with any success?

    I did come across a link by Droidxcon "Try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1988735
    [App-Mod/Source] WifiTether for JB TouchWiz Roms"

    I tried it but couldn't get it to work. Not sure if it's me or the software isn't compatible?

    Has anyone been able to achieve wireless tethering?

    If so how? Instructions with links to any app to download would be most appreciated.

    Thanks

    The Note II works perfectly fine with foxfi. We do have the paid version though if that makes a difference.

    I updated to the newest version possible on wireless tether (3.3 pre 2 under about) used galaxy s3 as device checked wifi driver reload 1 and 2, setup method netd-ndc (master), checked send netd msz client, and checked routing fix. Tethering works perfectly on my Verizon Galaxy Note 2!!!!

    You can also use a widget like fattin hotspot toggle , it bypasses the check for hotspot. No root needed. Same thing was on the s3

    Yes. But foxfi times out every 15 min on the free version. The paid version doesn't time out.

    I just found another means to do this. Download this widget from the market. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...eHotspot&hl=en

    Go into Settings -> More Settings -> Mobile Hotspot and configure your settings. Then turn the hotspot on via the widget loaded above. It actually works. No root required.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

    Yup. Give it a shot, it's worked for me in my brief testing.

    It's about $7 for the app.....i'm a fan of supporting developers who come up with great apps that i use often!! this one is very stable and i've never had a problem using it. the free version does time out so if you are just jumping on quickly to problem....its also a good way to see if its working for you before committing to buy.

    I've been using FoxFi on my Droid Razr. Glad to hear it works with the Note 2. Nine days and counting till the Christmas bonus arrives and then, so does the Note 2!

    Can confirm FoxFi works right from the market, no need for root or anything.

    Question though, I am still on unlimited data and don't have a tethering plan. Obviously to tether without a plan is against TOS, but I also read something recently about Verizon dropping their craziness about tethering and data plans.

    Anyone know what the story is regarding this?

    This works!
    While trying to figure this out over the last 30 minutes I installed Busybox from Google Play. Not sure if it was needed, but I know some root apps like it installed.

    The craziness has been dropped only for tiered plans. I'm glad to hear that tethering works. I may be picking one of these up soon.

    I set up foxfi on my phone when it was on the new line. I went to Verizon and changed the phone to my unlimited data plan and foxfi still works perfectly. Should I expect any difficulty from verizon? ( like a big bill) or is this ok?
