    Hi everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I am beyond frustrated. I installed the hotspot fix for jelly bean 4.2. My LG G2 has constantly been trying to update; so I thought it would be a good idea to delete the hotspot provision so that I could update.

    I screwed up somewhere and now the mobile hotspot is gone and the “updater” is gone as well. I downloaded the “stock” mobilehotspot.odex and the “mobileupdateclient.apk” installed them to phone, set the permissions, and rebooted the phone.

    However, on reboot the mobile hotspot app is not showing up and the phone will not try to update when I go to “about phone” and “software.”

    I installed TWRP to flash back to stock, but I can’t even get that to work, I just get the android guy with the triangle and exlamation point.

    Any input but would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Cheers to a great community.

    Flash back to stock with the LG Flash tool, take OTA to 12B, then OTA to 24A, then root with ioroot25 and apply KitKat hotspot fix.

    I am in the same boat that you were. I have the hotspot fix installed on JB. Hotspot works. Everyday sometimes twice a day I get the update notice. I haven't done it because I'm not sure there's a way to fix the hotspot with KK. This morning, in an attempt to hit the snooze button I hit the update button. Don't judge me, 6am and coffee was an hour away! I thought quick enough to hold the power button down before any update (damage) was started. Whew! I wish I could turn off the update. I'm not very good with all things root. I did get it rooted and the fix applied, but I don't even know if I could accomplish that feat again.

    So am I to understand that there is a root and hotspot fix if I let the OTA have it's way? Is it difficult?

    Thanks,

    Jason

    TB

    I don't have the paid ver. of TB, so no freeze. That doesn't answer the hotspot question either. Good idea for the update issue though. Thank you.

    Maybe rename it with root explorer? Are you using the modified hotspot apk?
