    I don't know why it shouldn't. It needs to be combined with the newest version of both FoxFi and PDANet. Once configured, when executed, and it pops up with the error abut contacting your carrier you should be able to use it. Just ignore the error.

    foxfi doesn't work on the motorola droid maxx (yet). I know because i tried it yesterday. the usb internet works though, but not the wifi one. also, if you try to use it, you will kill your screenlock with slider, face recognition, or no lock, and be stuck with password or pattern. it was a pain to fix.

    I also lost ability to Facelock and all you mentioned. After numerous Google searches, a "clear credentials" fixed it. Pain in the buttocks though. I remember someone else mentioning it worked through pdanet. Gonna have to look into that.

    There is now a fix to no wireless tether, it's the entitlement check for the built in hotspot app, one sec and I can find a link.

    There is no alternative quite yet that we know of, the maxx is pretty darn new and root was obtained only days ago. More things will come out and maybe foxfi support

    Credit to DirtyDroidX and PipeHitter, after you root (thanks JCase!) You can now use SQLite Manager or the free method below to enable your mobile hotspots on the new Droids without the entitlement check!

    PipeHitter, on 30 Jul 2013 - 5:16 PM, said:
    For using the stock Mobile Hotspot, here is a quick walk-thru using some free sql apps if you want to avoid paying for SQLite Manager.

    As always, all standard caveats apply - ie perform at your own risk. ROOT IS REQUIRED!

    Note: If you make an error while in aSQLiteManager don't panic, just back out and when prompted to save tap NO, then start over.

    1 Launch your stock Mobile Hotspot app to ensure a db entry is created[/size]. It will not work and give a msg stating to call cust svc, thats fine.
    2 Back out and download both aShell and aSQLiteManager by ANDSEN in play store for free[/size]
    3 Launch aShell and agree to terms, etc.[/size]
    4 Make sure you enable root access by checking box in upper left corner that says "root"[/size]
    5 Tap "file explorer" and navigate to /data/data and select "com.motorola.android.providers.settings"[/size]
    6 Select "database"[/size]
    7 Select "settings.db" !!!BE PATIENT!!, it will take a momement to create a temp file [/size]and give you a response
    8 Tap complete action using either reference to aSQLite[/size]
    9 Tap open database with aSQLiteManager[/size]
    10 Tap settings[/size]
    11 Tap data[/size]
    12 Tap pgdn until you see “entitlement_check” (mine was row 67)[/size]
    13 Tap "edit" on row 67, then change "value" from the default of 1, to 0[/size]
    14 Tap OK[/size]
    15 Reboot[/size]

    Now you should be able to use VZW Mobile Hotspot[/size] with no problems. I've connected with various devices and all behaves normally.

    I found this on droid rzr forums, I am about to try it out and see if its still free (always a worry right???)

    Okay this method is confusing, its much easier to get sqlite editor app and go to setting storage and look for line 65 entitlement check and change it from 1 to 0 (that's what the above method does) and it turns on now for me. Anyone else tried this???

    This method does require root, correct?

    rooting takes about 3 minutes. No reason not to. Entitlement hack takes another minute. No reason why anyone shouldn't do this.
