Nevermind, still getting occasional "limited access" problems...
Sorry, I didn't read all the posts, just skimmed a little. Is there any update on how to get tethering working (hopefully with 4g) I am just trying to learn about things while the phone is still in transit.
It works fine for me. Obviously, you must be rooted.
Go into SuperUser Settings and set auto response to Allow (you will change this back to prompt later)
Set Dev-Profile to Auto
Setup method to Auto
Start with Wifi Encryption off. You can turn it on once you have it working
Check MSS Clamping & Routing Fix
Leave all the other settings at Default
Launch the app and try it out. If it works, you can setup the encryption.
Once you have it working fine, change SuperUser, Settings, Auto response back to Prompt
Superuser was blocking the app because the prompt came and went too fast. Once I fixed it, it worked fine.
Good Luck and report back...
I'm kind of afraid of rooting a brand new phone, in case it's got a bug or something I don't notice right away. Is foxfi compatible with these phones?
Sorry, if I should stop asking questions like this and just wait until tomorrow and try it out for myself, just tell me. I can take it
I'll tell you this, it was way easier rooting this phone than my Droid. I had to un-root and re-lock the bootloader to do the OTA a few months back and then re-root it too. It all went pretty easily. That said, I understand your reservations. Unfortunately, wireless Tether will not work without root. Not sure about foxfi. It says it works with HTC phones but doesn't specifically mention the Rezound. There was another app that is supposed to work without rooting called Easy Tether but it requires that you load an app on the PC as well. The free version will not work with encrypted sites (https). Anyway, good luck with the phone. I've had min 6 mo and still love it.
Thanks Joe. I'll probably root it after a few weeks, just not right away. The D2 rooting process couldn't be much easier, so hopefully this one won't be either.
