    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

    I concur. The SQLite hack using the stock hotspot is the way to go.

    I just pluged my phone into the computer with the mini-usb cord from the charger went to settings and turned on
    tether, and the comutter uses the 4G VERY well and cruizes the net probably better then my wirless connection at home
    no app needed the computer runs Win 7 and reconized the phone as a internet connection ---works well for me
    you have to plug in the phone to computer before this option is available

    Hi,

    > Can someone else confirm that they have tried this? I am a little hesitant to
    > make such low level changes without confirmation.

    Yes, the process mentioned above works, however I modified the settings using aShell and aSQLiteManager (both free);

    I posted this on another droid forum...

    The instructions contained in a comment to an article on wifi tether for Droid Razr worked for me;

    How to Get Free 4G LTE Wifi Tether/Mobile Hotspot on Rooted Droid Razr! | DroidRazrRoot.com

    The comment from user Kendallhabra;
    "...download aShell and aSQLiteManager from the Market. Go into aShell, check the “Root” box at the top, go to File Explorer, then go to data -> data -> com.motorola.android.providers.settings -> databases -> settings.db, open it with aSQLiteManager, click Settings -> Data, click “PgDn” until you get to 150, click “Edit”, change the value to 0, then press the back button soft key until you are prompted to save the changes back in aShell, save the changes, and reboot your phone. You of course still need to have your phone rooted for this method."

    I use the stock Mobile Hotspot app, did not change any settings. Whenever I tried a 3rd party wifi hotspot app, it would simply start the stock app. Also, my old dell laptop was unable to connect to this ad-hoc wifi access point but a Droid0 and Apple iTouch connected OK.
