    Default Wifi Tethering / hot spot ?

    I used to use foxfi to wifi tether but now I need to pay for it. I have no problem paying for it but before I did I wanted to know what everyone else was using. Thanks for the input.

    Send Netd Max Client Cmd - Checked
    Wifi-driver reload 2 - Checked
    Routing fix - Checked"

    i love foxfi.....i also believe in supporting developers when they come up with something i use all of the time, so i think the small fee was super reasonable and worth every penny!!

    Yeah, that's for rooted devices, unfortunately. For non-root, I think Foxfi is typically the solution. You can try doing the hotspot/wifi toggle widget trick, as well. I'm not too familiar with how it works, but some people have claimed success with it, so you might want to search around for information on it.

    DroidXcon basically said that he downloaded this: to use for wifi tether. Your phone doesn't have to be rooted in order for it to work. Downloaded it right now and giving it a try.

    I think he was operating under the assumption that people knew the phone had to be rooted. This is for rooted phones only. As mentioned above FoxFi is typically the non-rooted option.

    Ya, just tried it earlier to see if it works without getting rooted first. And it didn't. Sadly. LOL
