Has anyone been able to use internet hotspots after root?

I van get connected, but no internet connection actually get shared.

Anyone know what's going on here?

I tried once while I was in another town, but dismissed the issues I had to a weak signal. Now you've got me wondering. I'll try again tonight when I get home and have my tablet.

All right, I don't understand.

Like you, I can get my tablet connected to my Blaze using the Hotspot sharing. And Google Talk works just fine. However, GMail and the Google Market/Play Store report that there's no connection after spinning for a long time.

Hi, I had the same problem as both of you. I fixed it after root by installing titanium backup, and uninstalling the "tethering manager" after backing it up. This also has solved my problem of the hotspot crashing after enabling it.

You can freeze it instead of uninstalling it too, if you have the pay for version of titanium backup. I would post an outside link to the instructions I used, but I don't have enough posts.

Worked like a charm. Thanks!

That's strange cause i don't have to pay that and i just have the premium 5gb "unlimited" internet and tethering has always worked.

On most carriers, tethering won't work on a stock ROM without a hack.

Last time T-mobile tried to up-sell me to the 5gb unlimited plan, they touted tethering as a bonus feature of that plan.
