    Your best bet is to root with the RAZR Blade hack then follow instructions for the SQLite workaround to enable mobile hot spot. Bluetooth and USB tether still work on FoxFi but they are very slow. Total investment for the above was about 30 minutes and $2.99 for SQLite.

    Keep in mind the RAZR is basically at the end of its product life cycle. We're unlikely to see additional updates.

    It does and Bluetooth works too but they are both radically slower than the WiFi hotspot connection.

    VZW FoxFi/PdaNet wifi blocking

    My daughter and I both have RAZR's, but she always answers NO to the IceCream Sandwich upgrade...however, I did

    Last night I was upgraded to JellyBean without any Y/N options and like everyone else...no more FoxFi/PdaNet!!!

    Is it possible to "downgrade" the OS back to IceCream Sandwich?

    Everything seemed to worked well on that OS version or has VZW blocked WiFi from all OS versions?

    Thanks...PVC

    Hi PVC, I was not asked prior to the update either. I lost my FOXFI wireless but I have been able to use it tethered via usb cable and have read other threads who have successful used it via bluetooth though I have not gotten there yet. the PDAnet works on mine so try your settings to see if something is amiss, btw, I have not had to Root yet so good luck. I rooted my last Droid X and had a lot of success but so far no need yet on the MAx but I will if I need to.

    I disabled Motorola services in my app list and have yet to get the update or running into any problems. I want to keep ICS for now but what problems will I run into if I keep Motorola services disabled?

    Go to monoprice.com. Look for a usbmini to 30 pin apple , if you have an ipad. Oherwise look for what your pad has as a jack.

    I have not been able to find a way to tether a tablet with a wired connection. As far as I know wired tethering a tablet is not possible.

    Guys,
    It's really easy to root with Razr Blade. Then you spend $3 for Sqlite and in effect turn off the block to your wi fi tether app. If you can't figure out how to do it, I'll walk you thru it.
