Just wondering. I never did the unlock as I really just need tether. Wondering if there were any developments in that department.

I feel confident that the FoxFi\PDAnet developers will come through with a solution as they did for the Samsung KitKat devices. A process report would be helpful.

DONATE TO ME
You can always pony up the extra money per month for the officially sanctioned mobile Hotspot feature. You can also use Faveset Klink over USB to a small always-on PC that acts as a wireless router. An Intel NUC is a good example of that. Both of these solutions do not involve paying Verizon any extra money per month, though they may not be 100% kosher as far as the ToS for your unlimited data plan. I went the legit route and signed up for the mobile Hotspot feature. Hurts the wallet but I'll never need to worry about NUCs or the possibility that I'll never be able to root my device and be stuck without a tethering solution.

Easy tether pro has worked since day one. Has bluetooth for wireless but it's not a true wifi hotspot. Better than nothing.

Don't know if this is the place to ask but is there any data available on connection rates between WiFi via mobile hotspot vs Bluetooth tether? Which is faster and what app is best?

I haven't seen any data. But I've personally experienced the best results using wifi hotspot. Followed by usb, then bluetooth. The last 2 are significantly slower.
