    will not work. i get the message saying it can't connect to verizon's servers. hope it's a simple fix for foxfi developers and not a kit kat software block.

    This is the fact every time. They always have to update.

    It's only possible with a developer edition with an unlocked bootloader. With the standard version with stock, locked bootloader, it will not allow you to downgrade any of the protected partitions.

    When do we expect FoxFi to make an update so we can start using our Hot Spot again? Also, Does anyone know of a trick to make the Hotspot start working again?

    On Kit Kat there is no way to make the hotspot work at the moment unless you go through Verizon. FoxFi may never work using WiFi on Kit Kat. Depends if they can figure out a work around

    I'm sure they're trying, but doesn't mean they'll succeed. From root, to other apps that accessed system data (GSAM, wakelock detector, etc.) it seems that Google locked a lot of things down in Kit Kat.

    I tried Foxfi Bluetooth before upgrading and it worked fine. Downloaded 4.4. Foxfi Bluetooth still working. Maybe a bit slower, but very acceptable to me.

    FoxFi tethering is still working for me, but every time I re-boot my phone I get a message from the phone saying that FoxFi is accessing all my data and browsing history. I was never a fan of the credentials FoxFi put on the phone, but I dealt with it for the WiFi. Are there any other tethering apps out there that are less intrusive?

    To be clear, you mean usb tethering? Or are you still on 4.2.2?

    Have you tried doing a factory data reset? The link below claims it works.

    Factory reset didn't work for me. Guess I just gotta hang in there and pay vzw $30 hotspot fee until foxfi comes up with a fix for kitkat

    I thought Verizon was legally required to allow 3rd party hotspot if you're on a tiered data plan. Does that not apply anymore? My foxfi isn't working anymore since KK update

    There are some tiered plans that don't have hotspot access, but if yours does, then the stock hotspot app will work. You don't need FoxFi.

    Verizon is not blocking FoxFi - it's just not working on KitKat. See FoxFi Devices

    Thanks. So basically just waiting on a kitkat update. I can't imagine why they would block WiFi but I guess that's Google's prerogative.

    I currently have a Droid Bionic running super slow, but havent wanted to lose mu unlimited Verizon data.

    Im thinking of buying Moto X while the special is running for 330.00 No contract needed.

    I use FoxFi all day long at work to power my Nexus 7. I know that 4.4 on the Moto X has killed FoxFi wifi.

    Anyone know if this is possible-

    Hook up a USB OTG cable to the Moto X, and a regular Micro USB cable to the Nexus 7. Connect the 2 cables, and then would I be able to use FoxFi/ PdaNet USB Tethering??? Can you USB tether from a micro to micro device with 4.4 Kit Kat????


    I need a new phone bad, but I dont want to lose my free tethering.

    And btw, i have tried many times to use the Blue Tooth tether option from my Bionic to Nexus 7. They both always show to connect to each other, but when I try to use the internet on the Nexus7 it shows Im offline, and no data is working.

    Looks like they got Foxfi working on Samsung phones running Kitkat. Hopefully, that means it won't be too long for everyone else.
