foxfi helps when your data plan doesn't allow tethering

_MOD Edit- data used be data one could use it however one pleases, and then iphone came along and ATT asked them to selectively allow tethering on some data plans. so that they could charge more for tethering.

i think the back end of it is implemented using, APN types. Vaguely remember able to tether by setting APN type as "Default, tether". doesnt work anymore, atleast in mycase.
the APNs on my phone are locked, even if i make new APNs they keep switching back to the default ones.

since my phone is rooted there should be someway to delete network specified APNs, and use custom APNs

my guess is this should serve fine and we could just use the default android tethering on rooted phones

thoughts, guys?

I did the hack, I've used it just fine on RAZR, Bionic, MAXX and a bunch of other Motorola devices.

This time when I connect any device to my MAXX HD I lose 4G until I disconnect a device.

Anyone having the same issues or have a solution?

I am having the same issue. My computer will connect, but have no internet access. My Nexus 7 connects with no issues however. My phone still retains 4G status, so it isn't a lack of service. I tried both FoxFi and the Settings.db hack. No luck on either. I'd love it if someone could figure this out.

Did you try usb tether option? It works for me (only on ics) but foxfi works as well. Have you installed the recent update? I believe it was something like 0.7.2. I haven't, so maybe that is the cause of you not having working wifi tether.

For those that hacked the settings.db, have you tried this?

You should remove foxfi and any other 3rd party tethering apps before trying that .apk.

Tried it both before and after the 0.7.2 update. My Nexus 7 AND Xbox 360 will connect via WiFi Tether, but if I use my computer I can connect, but get "No Internet Access." I can however use USB tether, it's just more tedious. I've also tried going into command prompt and doing iprelease and iprenew with no luck.

foxfi asking me to subscribe to plan
I still have the unlimited data, and i've rooted my razr hd maxx, plus flashed the jb leak. Foxfi asks me to subscribe to the hotspot feature through verizon. Is there a way to get around this?

Yes, turn off entitlement as stated before.... well....

However foxfi went to a limited free model, right? I dunno, I just use a usb tether, and it works great with the entitlement hack.

The masses are uninstalling foxfi, it doesn't work on my HD for some reason... oh yeah, they said their product doesn't work on jelly bean!
