Default Hotspot widget / Kitkat?

Has anyone found a hotspot widget that can turn off the hotspot? I've tried just about everything on the market... I can find widgets that will turn it on but nothing yet to turn it off. What used to work with Jelly Bean doesn't work with Kitkat.

4.4, rooted stock. Hotspot works great!

I made my own widget with Tasker and it has worked through all versions.

I tried that. I can set it to turn on, but when I try toggle or off, it won't turn off.

I just checked again and you are right, it will not turn it off. I was sure it worked when I first tried it. I am using an xposed module for the hot spot. I wonder if this Kitkat or Motorola specific issue.

I'm using the native tether app.

I am also using the native app. I noticed that manually turning wifi back on turns off the tethering. But somehow Tasker can't turn wifi on automatically while tethering is active.

I just tried that. I guess I can use that as a work-around until the apps catch up to kitkat. use a widget to turn the hotspot on, and then double tap the wifi widget to turn the hotspot off and then turn the wifi off...

The Wifi AP quicksettings tile on GravityBox works perfect for turning on and off.

I also use the tethering quick settings tile from gravity box, and it's flawless.

If u can root ur device and install xposed framework, that would be better. Just use gravity box or anything similar to customize toggles.
