    Rooted Rezound to Use Foxfi Wifi and no luck

    I have a Verizon Rezound with unlimited data. I went and got an S3 because Foxfi didn't work with my Rezound and I figured it was time for an upgrade. Turns out the S3 has terrible connection. It's actually at Samsung getting looked at. For the heck of it I decided to root my rezound and see if Pdanet/Foxfi worked. When I used it with my S3 it worked perfectly (when S3 had a decent signal)

    However on my Rezound I'm only able to get the USB mode to work. When I try wifi I get limited connectivity.

    I've made sure to forget wireless networks so that it can turn on wifi on the phone without hitting my router. Near as I can tell I just don't get an IP. I assume I have to authorize the connection but I don't see the menu. On my samsung I had a thing showing my surface pro connecting and authorized it but on my rezound nada. I figured I'd ask here since this is where I got the rooting instructions but may make more sense to ask Pdadnet if it's an interface issue.

    If you're going for wireless tether, I'd use wifi-tether https://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/ . It's way more reliable as far as I'm concerned. You just need to make sure to use the right settings:
    Galaxy Nexus(CMDA)
    NetD Master
    routing fix
    reload wifi driver(I always check this one)

    And you should be good to go. I'm not sure if they ever fixed the encryption bug with the Rezound but it always worked for me. At worst, you can use a ROM that has the native hotspot app patched.
    Helpful Rezound Links:

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.
