Default [Q] 4.4.2 Wifi hotspot turns on and devices connect, but no internet access.

I can turn on wifi hotspot in settings and connect with other devices, but they can't actually connect to the internet. I've tried moto tether in xposed, wifi tether router(with the mooto x specific settings in the app guide), foxfi, and a plethora of other generically named wifi tether apps. Nothing I try is working. My Moto X has an unlocked bootloader, twrp recovery, stock rooted 4.4.2 and I am using straight talk (runs on AT&T's network). This problem has plagued me since I got the phone and I can't seem to find any solution that actually works. Does anyone know of a solution to this?

I had a similar issue with wifi and it was ultimately resolved by SBFing back to stock, re-trying, and it worked like a charm. You can read the whole thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...ocked-t2755730

While we never did figure out what the issue was (because my device was completely stock, other than flashing SuperSU/TWRP), but now it works great. I'm using the WiFi Tether for root users...download link is in the thread I linked above. I know its a bit of a pain to have to reinstall your apps, etc, but it was worth it to me.

Good Luck
Help us keep XDA fun and safe. Please read the RULES, and please respect your fellow members.

Looking for a new carrier? Check out Republic Wireless!
Plans starting at $10 for unlimited talk/text and $25 with unlimited data.
Use this link to save $20. RW is my carrier and I couldn't be happier with them.


I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE
