I know the mantra so no need to preach (though I'd expect few here having rooted our phones and wiped the ROM would go that way).
Once in a while I want to use my phone as a hotspot. This is one of my gripes with the option Verizon presents. I maybe do this once a month for a matter of minutes at a time. That sort of usage should be included.
Anyway, I use Wifi Tether and it's been great but now I ran into an issue. I'm spending weekends on the beach with a Kindle and it refuses to see the hotspot (the ad-hoc versus infrastructure issue). I read that there's a way to get a true hotspot that any app will see. There was talk of a 3G Hack but that seems to have vanished now.
Are others getting this to work reliably/easily and, if so, how?
