    I need to remove/freeze/disable the "mobile hotspot" app. It is interfering with my tethering (i'm using the old "wireless Tether" and "Wired tether for Root users" apps. How can I remove this app? I did some googling and apparently it is not an .apk or anything.. I am rooted and i do have root explorer.

    thanks

    yeah as soon as i open either tether app, the VZW one opens also and it won't allow me to tether without having the ability in my plan.

    anyways i don't have a hotspot.apk or odex in the system/apps folder. I couldn't find anything with "hotspot" when searching either.. i may have deleted it when i first rooted my bionic but it still shows up in my app tray..

    thanks for your help though, any more takers?

    You can just use the stock USB tether in settings. You don't need an external app for it. Verizon (for whatever reason) doesn't restrict LTE users from USB tethering.

    the VZW can be removed.. but if you dont have a hotspot.apk then theres a problem... the sql hack will remove the VZW lock on the stock hotspot.. and works better then any apps out there IMO... only thing is the widget from wifi tether is nice..what OS is on your phone

    use this version if your still on GB.. it was the most stable for that version.. btw when you do use this the stock hotspot will appear also ... its a known glitch ..3.1 beta 14 android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting...might wanna check your firewall if you cannot connect.... im done :happy3:

    Should be in your app drawer. It's a red icon called Mobile Hotspot.

    Also, there's ways around Verizon provisioning but requires root.
