Wifi tether doesn't work on ICS...yet, foxfi does or the entitlement hack from what I have read.
If you do the entitlement check, just use the stock WiFi Hotspot app "Mobile Hotspot"
I tried that, but when I start the stock mobile hotspot, it just get stuck at starting. The option to click on it turns grey and it just stays grey unless I reboot the phone
And Verizon will not know/charge if I use this occasionally? I don't want to trigger any flags for them.
just use foxfi. That seems to work for me.
Foxfi won't work for me. It just crashes when I try to run it.
weird im on foxfi right now.
the stock tether app works. Thanks
so i set the entitlement check to 0, then did the settings in Wifi Tether to bionic and routing fix, but i get a startup error when i use it
i tested the stock mobile hotspot, but will verizon see if i am using it? i dont plan on using it heavily, i just dont want them to know that i use their stock app and charge me for a tethering plan.
what im asking is, does the entitlement check to 0 turn off the verizon seeing us use the stock app?
works fine for me.
Thank you so much! I actually didn't have to change the line to 0 from 1, to get it to work. I actually did at first and then I realized my backup assistant through VZW is not working so I went back and changed it back, rerooted, and my backup assistant and the app to access my VZW data still is not working. Did anyone else have this problem? If so, how do I fix it?
I apologize in advance for the hijack of the post, but I initially found this post through Google when I was having problems with my RAZR and wifi tethering after upgrading to the OTA of ICS. I want to say upfront that the original poster's instructions worked beautifully. I rooted my RAZR using the Batman Root utility 1.7 for RAZR by Matt and can't be happier.
My only question is - Does changing the 1 to a 0 ENSURE that VZW won't somehow discover this 'workaround' and start charging the extra $30/month? Or is that what the root access allows for, for SQLite to access that setting and make the 'call home' feature inaccessible to VZW? That charge is bogus IMHO just b/c I only use it for testing wifi connections and when my g/f (who has a 3G-only phone, Droid 3) needs the faster 4G connection every so often - I don't use the ability enough to justify spending the extra money to utilize it.
Granted, if any type of incremental updates to ICS come down the pike, that setting may be reset again; but initially with root this should not alert VZW, correct?
