    These wireless tether apps are confirmed to work on the Droid 4 running Android 2.3.6. They do not require a Verizon tethering plan, although you may still see the "Tethering or Mobile Hotspot active" notification.

    WiFi Tether for Root Users 3.1-beta11 (root required)

    FoxFi (Beta) (root not required)

    FoxFi works great for me. Can't seem to get WPA2 to work with it though...

    Someone else mentioned this in another thread and said it started working once he rebooted. Have you tried that?

    I am currently using an app called Open Garden. Works great.

    Couldn't get open garden to work on my D4, which saddens me because i just upgraded from a HTC Eris that was my baby. The first link works for me...but I found the radius was drastically reduced. Not sure if that's the app or the d4.

    Holy android gods, if thats true that would be amazing. Can someone else confirm that they have tried this? I am a little hesitant to make such low level changes without confirmation.

    Also does this require root access? (i am rooted but others who are not might want to know)

    WiFi Tether for Root Users has always worked perfectly for me, even in my OG Droid days
