    I am stock ics unrooted on vzw razr maxx hd. Foxfi used to work but now my laptop restarts every time i try to connect to foxfi. I tried to connect to foxfi bluetooth but i couldn't get to the page in which bluetooth connects to internet on my laptop.

    Is there a free wifi tether app for unrooted razr maxx hd that still works? I don't mind paying for an app but i don't want to pay only to find it doesn't work when we get the jb update.

    I am on verizon wireless and do not pay for their wifi tether and i am on a granfathered unlimited data plan. I read one guy got in trouble for using pdanet on an ATT phone. Obviously I don't want that either.

    Thanks! Foxfi was great while it lasted. :'

    Foxfi still works for me on my Maxx HD. My kids connect with their ipod touches, my wife connects with her Samsung tablet and my computer connects. Maybe unload, re-install and see what you get. There's also a foxfi companion that might be necesary too from the play store.

    Good luck!

    It won't in a week when you have jb. We both need a solution.

    I don't like that it makes windows crash in my laptop. Something very weird there.

    They say themselves it won't work with jb. Read recent reviews. I-d like to give them 1 star review but play store won't let you rate apps unless you join google+. I don't like being forced to join anything. Windows phones are beginning to look more and more attractive to me. Google is intrusive.

    Anyone else have a comment on this. Do you think the foxfi app will be fixed to work with JB or is there another app that will broadcast wifi?

    Updated to JB last night. FoxFi is working in BT mode, but not wifi. I'm sure it will be a matter of time before it is fixed. Just stay calm.

    The laptop rebooting shouldn't have anything to do with the wifi sharing... that is what struck me as strange.

    Has anyone had verification from the fifox developers that there will be a fix, or is everyone just hopeful at this point?

    Since I have unlimited through vzw fifox is no longer an option. They want you to pay. Might as well use vzw software.
