Default Moto G Aio Wireless Internet Tethering Work around

i have done some research Aio Wireless (AKA att marger with cricket) Aio doesn't believe in Bootloader Unlock on there phones due to wanting to wifi tether or usb tether. Due to not able to unlock the bootloader or rooting the phone i have found a work around to be able to tether your moto g from aio wireless to your computer to be able to use it for internet. the work around is using PDANET. Pdanet (aka FoxFi) builds it self into the phone like root access but not full root access. You have to use the usb tether on the app to tether. You can get FoxFi on the google market. Purchase the licenses to be able to have full access to the app.

here are some steps to use foxfi
things needed. deleloper options enabled foxfi on android and pdanet installed on the computer (Mac or Windows)

1. download Foxfi from the google market on to the moto g
2. download pdanet from there website (Google pdanet) look for Version 4.15 click on it and download it) and install it on your computer (when installing install the moto drivers when it asks)

3. After installing both enable usb debug mode in the deleloper opions
4. Plug the phone into the computer and go to the foxfi app on the phone and enable usb tether (the drivers will enable and install on the first time used on the computer)
5. pda net will pop up on the computer saying its connecting to the phone
6. after everything done you should be able to use the usb tether on the phone via foxfi.
I will check to see if there another way to unlock the bootloader with some kinda of keygen program for the moto g from Aio Wireless. I will start a patation aio wireless to release bootloader unlocks to the moto g users.

congrats to Pdanet to making a work around. FoxFi works with other android phones. be sure to use a VPN on your phone when using tethering. look for free vpn on the app market.

Props man. This is good cause the limitation Aio wireless puts on their phone is really annoying. Also, it kills me I still havent been able to root this phone so any assistance would be most appreciated.

The work around I found still stands as the same. Aio wireless is a good company to have I think it beats everyone else for value. The best thing I could say is buying a phone off of ebay or localy that rooted unlocked and custom rom. I am using the first Samsung note 1 on aio wireless works great but I am sure aio hates it. I am still looking for a root way to be able to unlock the full pational. The Samsung galaxy express with aio wireless has the bootloader locked so you cant do tethering. best thing if you wanna use the galaxy express look for the att version on ebay that unlocked. the bootloader on that version remains to be unlocked so you install custom roms.
