The best part about this hack is we've now turned a "bloatware" app into a useable app, and I can free my phone from the useless (and not bloatware itself) FoxFi, Barnicle, Wifi Tether, Open Garden, etc., etc. apps.
Could you point me in the direction of the exact procedure use use to root and also apply the wifi hack? Also, if I'm reading this correctly you are saying that it does still work on JB 4.1.1 (I just got a RMaxxHD as well. LOVE it but haven't updated from ICS because I don't wanna loose wifi.) I have an unlimited plan so it's not free unless I use an app and as you know no current apps work on JB!
THANKS SO MUCH!! I know a lot about Phones and computers but it will be my first root, not my first hack though, lol.
