I wonder if its because I took the ota or maybe I should have just flashed it my self
I manually installed the update after trying to use voodoo and it still did not work. It seems as if some of us are not able to update su binary after we updated. I found instructions on pushing the su update to my bionic via cmd on my comp, but, I have not had a chance to try it yet.
You can't flash jb file.. its not a flash able file. You'll have to wait for someone to tweak with it or create one. Just install it in recovery
When you install the update through stock recovery you are flashing it. Just as when you flash a custom ROM in safe strap or bootstrap. Right? Its basically the same thing I believe.
I always hack my hotspot or run a ROM that has hotspot hack already baked in. I'll download foxfi and check to see if it does in fact work on jelly bean. I have heard reports that its been updated to support jb.
Well it does indeed work on my maxx. Not sure about bionic though. Bionic does not appear to be listed as one of the phones that foxfi has support for with jb yet. Its so similar to razr though that I am sure it would work.
