    Guess what gang?
    My FoxFi is working now.
    I'm not sure what happened but I think I uninstalled it, reinstalled it and then rebooted the phone and its working, at least for now.
    HOLLY +++! It is! HEY YO! I searched FoxFi in the PlayStore, and saw the FoxFi Add On. I'm not sure what its for, but it has a link for us AT&T and Sprint customers (who they took it away from) a link how to get it. The link is FoxFi Installer

    So, if I use FoxFi, whats the Add On app? Should I use it since AT&T doesnt want us to use this? Thanks!

    Yes, it does seem to work. I downloaded the latest version directly from Foxfi FoxFi Installer (1.91.3). The Google play store lists their version of Foxfi as 1.91 so I am not sure if they are identical. I say seems to work because I am running an ATT microcell (which uses my internet connection to make a mini 3G cell tower). I turned the wifi off on my phone to make sure I was only getting data from the microcell. Then I enabled Foxfi. I used my HP Touchpad to connect to the hotspot from my phone and BOOM, I'm surfing. I'll give it a try when I am running directly off ATT towers tomorrow.

    I see Foxfi has a add-on now that may help mask data use. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...hmaS5hZGRvbiJd

    EDIT: beat me to it. According to the description of the add-on, it does this
    This version of FoxFi AddOn implements
    1. Notifications of WiFi client connections.
    2. A Web Proxy server on the phone that can be used to hide tether usage.
    3. Debug log sending.

    Of course the description of the main Foxfi app still says it doesn't work with Jellybean, but it sure seems to.

    So what exactly does that mean? I'm a little confused with my public school education Have you aded the Add On? Do you recommend it for us AT&T users?

    I just went to this link and downloaded the app and installed it. FoxFi Installer Then follow the directions in this thread. The add on is in the Play store. I ahve tried it a bunch of time and it works well. I tried it outside of work (where I have wifi anyway) at lunch and connected my wifes phone to it and she was able to surf!

    Hey gents, is it safe to say that it does not work on sprint? I was looking into getting a Samsung Galaxy note 2, but if that's the case I will prob get the s3.

    I have the note 2 for At&t and the first thing I did was download pdanet and it directed me to foxfi....I downloaded it and wifi was working great.I woke up today and now its not working. When I click to activate it a message pops up and says wifi is not working with 4.1 and above....which is puzzling because I had 4.1.1 since I got the phone. Is anyone else experiencing this???

    Same here. No longer working and it gives the message about not working with 4.1. I updated a bunch of apps yesterday. I wonder if one of them caused this problem. Foxfi is showing the same rev as the one I downloaded a few days ago.

    I tried Wifi Hotspot & USB Tether Lite by SVTP. Wifi Hotspot & USB Tether Lite SVTP Although it gives an error message after turning on the hotspot, it does work. This lite version is only good for two days and the full version is $15. I use a hotspot maybe three times a year, but for those few times I am really glad to have the feature. On previous phones, I was rooted and often running a custom ROM that had the hotspot feature built-in. I might be willing to pay $15, but I think I'll see what happens with Foxfi in the future. Since it worked yesterday, seems like we should be able to get it going again.

    Like most of you, my WiFI was working yesterday on FoxFi. Unfortunately that is not the case to day. However my Bluetooth tethering is working like a champ.

    Its back! Strange stuff. Yesterday I cleared Foxfi data, uninstalled, and then rebooted my phone. I reinstalled the app (the one straight from Foxfi). Still no love. Then today I ran it and it worked..... several times in a row. How does the same version of the app give a not compatible message with 4.1 one day and not the next?

    I was referencing your post there. There are some issues using this on my S3 & JellyBean. I need to continue to find the necessary steps to getting it working properly?

    I went in just now and started FoxFi and it worked perfectly. And, I verified that I was able to get my wifi tablet to connect to the Internet.
