    Does anyone know of a tethering app that will work on the Verizon LG G2?

    Thought tethering was included in all the new Verizon plans. So stock tethering should be enabled under setting/wifi

    if you are on an older unlimited 4G plan, you can use PDANet. it will let you tether via bluetooth (pretty slow, capped out at ~3G speeds) or via a USB Cable (Fast, but annoying because you have to keep the phone plugged in to your laptop). The Wifi tethering for the app "Foxfi" still doesn't work with the G2 as far as I know.

    It is. I am assuming that the op is on a legacy plan

    I honestly forget how I enabled it. I think I installed an apk that fakes the provisioning in Verizon's tethering app. enabling tethering launches a blank "provisioning" app before loading the Verizon tether app, or whatever looks like a Verizon app, and then it works as expected. the only downside is I haven't been able to get any shortcuts or widgets to work, which is annoying. I have to enable it in settings every time.

    yes I rooted the phone before I even logged into my Google account. I wish I could remember how I did it, but I know I got the solution on these forums or on xda.
