Now that we have root back, I tried using Wifi Tether but it wont start correctly. all the other apps out there keep triggering the AT&T checker which then kicks it back off. Miss the old days when the tether widget trick worked. Anyway, does anyone know what settings to change to make WiFi tether work? Or if there is a particular version we need for our phones?

Have you tried freezing the system app called "tetheringprovision"?

Yep. Froze it using Titanium and now it gets a "Unfortunately, Settings has stopped" when I try turning tethering on.

Tried FoxFi as well. It was able to start without any errors but it's not broadcasting anything.


Nevermind. Got it to work using another app. Luckly I only need it once in a while so the pain to turn it on and off doesnt bother me.


Do wish AT&T didnt make such a fuss about tethering with the unlimited plan (yay grandfathered plan!)
