    Amen! Anyone who thinks that bypassing Verizon and using our phones as free WiFi hotspots is stealing needs to GTFO.

    I have not been able to get it working. It worked fine on my OG Droid but not on the Rezound. I have v3.1 Beta 10, have MSS CLamping and Routing Fix checked but it just sits at "Please wait while starting". Anyone have any ideas?

    Try dropping down a version or two. Version 2.0.7 works without playing with anything. Any version above that may be hit or miss.

    Well I got it working. I had a few problems. First, I changed the settings in Superuser because I noticed that it was getting denied. For some reason, the screen was blasting by so fast, I didn't have a time to click accept allowing superuser access. That got me by the launching screen but I was getting no WiFi signal. I'm not sure how I fixed that. I tried switching channels and went through all the other settings and I got it working but I'm not sure which setting fixed it.

    You can run AP mode with this version? Any special settings or just hit start?

    No, not AP. Just AdHoc WiFi. 1 user only.

    Just throwing it out there cause it worked great for me. I don't really need tethering unless i'm traveling (rare) I Cable Internet at Home. I have 4g Phone (obviously)

    But check out 'Open Garden Wifi'. Lots of options, easy to use etc.

    Can you do a wired tether without root, and without paying verizon? Need occasional connection, just doesn't have to be wireless.

    As long as you're not abusing it you can get away with wired or wireless tether. The people that are running their entire houses on tether are the ones that usually get caught.

    First time on a forum. Never had problems before with free wifi till my Rezound. I too, ran the beta 3.1 version and couldn't get encryption. I unistalled with astro file mgr., then reinstalled 2.07. It started up great on my handset, with encryption running, but my laptop doesn't recognize it. I tried changing many options, but to no avail. I am curious if anyone has heard of using the SQLite Editor. This is the program I ran on my Bionic. After changing some settings you actually use Verizon's mobile hotspot for free.
