Google Wallet and WiFi hotspot for non-root

So coming from the GNex I am very accustomed to using these two features, especially Wallet, very regularly and since I missed out on the HTC dev unlock I was wondering if anyone has created a backdoor for the One that bypasses the Verizon stupidity to allow these two features. I downloaded a few hotspot apps last night and they couldn't get past the Verizon subscription check, and of course Google Wallet says its not authorized for the phone (I know it downloads to the One, but it won't do anything beyond that). Any help would be great, especially with a hotspot solution because I am going on a trip this week.

I use "FoxFi (wifi tether w/o root)". It works for me with no issues.

I tried FixFi on my HTC One and couldn't get past the Verizon subscription check with the bluetooth tether option. I will admit I didn't fully test the wifi option since I unsure if I wanted to accept the certificate and required unlock pattern/pin/password. Since it works for you, do you have any advice you can share?

Unfortunately I have not tried it on the One yet. I am using a Bionic and it bypasses the subscription check. Sorry I can't be more help.

Tried FoxFi out today again and for some reason it worked this time, but are there any free apps? I know the premium is only $8, but since I only use it a few times a year I would rather just go free if I can.

Nice avatar.

Foxfi is free I use it all of the time and never paid for it. Just press the home key after you activate the WiFi hotspot and it will bypass the Verizon check and the need for a pin/password.

So are you saying it is working on the Verizon HTC One? I was on the fence with the One because I'm grandfathered into unlimited data and frequently use wifi tethering.

I read somewhere that Foxfi wasn't working on newest Android version, including HTC One.

Is it working fine for you?

And, does it work via wifi connection, or is it Bluetooth?

I just tried it and it does work over wifi. I was amazed. It just installs a certificate that forces you to have a lock screen password.

Awesome. That's what I have read elsewhere as well. Now I'm definitely leaning towards picking up a One and patiently wait for root, for other features.

Thanks for the info!

Just worked for me, same as previous poster. Verizon HTC One, business pool of data plan, no prompt except for certificate and lock screen (ugh). Now I have 2! Have to find a way to turn off HTC's drag to the center one...
