    That's a fluke then because it isn't working for the rest of us. And you can't use FoxFi, either or SwitchPro Widget.

    good point - he needs to check his bill to see if he is paying the additional $30.

    I have seen others use this with success on other 4.4 devices and was wondering if anyone with a Moto X has tried/verified this works to get FoxFi to work.

    Unrooted: Do a factory reset.

    Rooted: "confirmed, Deleting or renaming /data/misc/wifi solves the problem."

    but you have to be rooted don't you?

    I am unrooted and have done several factory resets and FoxFi doesn't work on my Moto X running kitkat.

    Makes no sense. I find it very hard to believe that there's a "glitch" for the very few "lucky" Verizon customers.

    If you use PDA Net and connect via USB it works just fine.
    I think we're all looking for an app that'll do it without root.
    So far, PDANet > Bluetooth Server is the only thing I can use successfully on my tablet. Downstream speeds are always < 1 Mbps; upstream speeds are usually < 2 Mbps. Slow, but better than giving up my unlimited data or paying another $30/month.

    My galaxy nexus let me tether on unlimited data for the year plus that I had it. My brother who had the same phone and plan could not. Very random.

    On the moto x what if you change the entitlement check before the 4.4 OTA and then unroot? Does it retain the change to 0 post 4.4?

    Well, the connection does not allow Google services to sync; so, in all honesty, it's useless if you need Drive, Keep or anything else to sync. (I think Gmail sent successfully, though.) I need Google services; so, I'm still hunting for a better solution.

    I purchased PdaNet for my phone long ago.
    I installed PdaNet Tablet onto my tablet.
    Pair the 2 devices via Bluetooth.
    On the phone, open PdaNet & activate Bluetooth Server
    On the tablet, open PdaNet Tablet -- click the Connection button. If the Connection button is greyed-out, click the Configure button & proceed.
    The Bluetooth connection ought to work.

    Yeah, and they actually pair but then they don't stay connected to each other. It's weird because my Moto X has no problem connecting to other Bluetooth devices.
