    Default HTC EVO V 4G Mobile Hotspot

    Hey I'm kind of new here and I was wondering if there is any app that would allow the htc evo v 4g to have a mobile hotspot without paying the fee or rooting the phone. I've heard Foxfi is good app. Could anyone tell me who has an htc evo v 4g if there is anyway to get it for free. Thanks!

    "WiFi Tether for Root Users"

    Used it last weekend. Worked like a charm. You're just gonna have to bite the bullet and root.

    How hard is it to root and what are the side affects?

    1) Not hard if you can READ EVERY STEP AND PAY ATTENTION to what you are doing. At most, you need to know how to follow directions and know how to use the Windows/DOS Command Prompt.

    2) Side effects include diarrhea or loose stools; headache; mild stomach pain; nausea; upset stomach; vomiting; dizziness; your **** turning purple; putting hair on your chest and ability to get more use out of your phone.

    HTC might try to deny warranty claims but if you got your phone from Virgin, it's Virgin that you'll be doing a phone swap with... not HTC. Even then, push comes to shove... if you can argue that any warranty claim is due to a hardware defect, then the fact that you unlocked the bootloader on the phone is irrelevant and they will have to honor the warranty.

    Try Telhoc Alpha, works great on my unrooted phone.

    Try Wifi Hotspot and USB Tether, it works great and no rooting is required. I recently ran across this app and it works great. I think it's even better than Foxfi.

    Do you have a link to directions on how to root the HTC Evo V?
