DONATE TO ME
the only problem I have is, I got too used to unlock my phone using the fingerprint scanner and in order to use this app, you need to disable that and unlock with a pin # but I am happy there is an option for tether for us still on unlimited data

Leo. Root your phone with @geohot Towelroot and then install Xposed and X Tether. Native app FTW.
If I helped you, hit thanks if you like.

Default Use Android Device Manager

An easy way to get back fingerprint lock is to use the android device manager to disable the lockscreen lock outs. You also have to install the certificate first and do not remove it or you will have to do this again.

2. Click "Lock" and chose a new number password.
3. Type the new password on your phone and it will unlock.
4. Now it should let your change the lockscreen to anything, and foxfi will continue to work

Still working after restarting phone and using Foxfi

Orrrr, now you can Root your phone without tripping Knox, installed Xposed and X Tether and have the native hotspot and tether working without FoxFi
