    I have a new razor maxx ver. 4.0.4 and have not been able to get any hotspot app to work. I am toying with the idea of rooting and trying again. Does anyone have a suggestion on what the best hotspot for a rooted phone is?

    Foxfi doesn't work for you? There is WiFi tether for root. There is another but I can't remember offhand. If you do a search with your version you'll come up with a ton of options. This question always comes up.

    I can make a connection with Foxfi but can't access any sites with my PC or tablet. If I could get it to work at least once, I would buy the full version. I have tried several other USB tether apps with no success. Foxfi worked like a charm on my droid x but i needed to upgrade to 4G.

    Foxfi works fine on my Maxx w/o root. You just have to use the generic network name and no password. Since the hotspot is fairly low broadcast power is the security really that important?

    Root and use the SQLite hack and be done with it as it connects using the phones built in hotspot and works every time.
    I've been using it for a year now and it always connects, never an issue.

    Well, I got Foxfi to work without root. It has something to do with my wireless router on my home network. As soon as I power off my router, foxfi started working. May still root though. What are the advantages to rooting?
