    My brother plugged my phone into his Vizio tv and it prompted him to set up a password on my Motorola Bionic.
    Now I can't turn it off. When I go into my lock screen settings the option to disable the lock is faded and unclickable. I can change the password and change the amount of time the screen is off before the lock needs to be re-entered, but I can't disable it.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Go into security scroll down and clear credentials and then it'll let you change it to slide

    No, unfortunately not. Since Fox-Fi doesn't use root it installed certificates instead (so non rooted users can use it). Once a certificate is installed Jelly Bean requires you to lock your screen. If you are rooted then you can use this: https://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/downloads/list
