Awesome! Thanks a bunch! :happy3:
I am upgrading from a Droid 3 to a Droid 4 (Thanks, Verizon, for this free upgrade!), and on my Droid 3 I used a method to change the radio channels or something in the phone itself, so that the mobile hotspot would use the same connection as it would if I were using my phone normally. The entitlement change never worked on my Droid 3, and I'm curious if it will actually work on the Droid 4. My phone will be here today sometime, so I will be glad to break it in, root it, and see if I can get wifi tethering. Will update with progress!
The entitlement check if for 4G phones only. The radiocomm hack works for 3G phones only.
Thanks! Loving the phone, didn't have to do the entitlement check though. Rooted, latest version of wifi app, and up and running in under three minutes!
Thank you so much this worked like a charm and both WiFi Tether and the built in mobile hotspot works!
Dude, you are my HERO!!!!! I searched high and low to find out why SQlite editor was fc'ing after the OTA ICS update on my rooted Razr Maxx to find out nothing. Some peoples worked, others didn't, etc. I had V1.3 running from my rooted Samsung Facinate and it worked on the Maxx until the update. I saved the root, everything went like clockwork, but had an issue with TB and wireless tether (both). I resolved TB but the wireless tether was burning my @ss (especially since I'm grandfathered in on data plan). Your little bit of info just made my day. I rarely if ever use wireless tether, but to be ripped off by Big Red and told "NO data unless you pay" just rubs me the wrong way. I'm on it now!!!!
Thank you so much!!! :hail::hail::hail::hail::hail:
ps. I screwed them out of a GalaxyIII as well (still new in box) lol
Just as a note, I was able to Wifi-tether with the free Fox-Fi app before rooting my Droid IV. I wonder if this whole job is an unnecessary step to take...
Foxfi wifi tether is where its at, make sure to change your ssid/ name of wifi hotspot. Have tried all tethering apps, root apps included. Foxfi's the right choice, besides you don't even need root! I recently upgraded to 4.0.4 latest version as of Aug 1st also rooted. Dhcp problems that were occurring disappeared
As always keep it open people
I don't know how you figured that out but your directions were perfect. I root just so I can use this tether method because it is so stable. Thanks again.
Works better with the stock tether app and these instructions, thanx
I believe that some of the wifi hotspot teather problems are hardware related.
Her is my observation: three DRIOD 4 all working fine (I rooted all and set up teather).
I hacked up my phone and replace it.
The new DROID 4 would not teather. It would connect and run a short bit and drop. I called support and complained about data service dropping. No questions I was sent a new refurbished phone (I originally bought a refurbished phone).
The new phone worked like a champ. Same configuration. Simply restored a backup.
Rooted with foxfi and wifi teather and a cold beer. ;-).
What's the difference in this vs, a wifi teethering app from the market?
Also, can anyone help me on same subject?... http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/220901-can-my-d4-power-my-d2g.html#post2236439
