If the original source was linked, and not quoted, then you wouldn't need a refund button. LOL.

Yes, the settings.db hack requires root access.

Pay VeeZeeDub 20 bones a month. No other option if you're dead set against rooting.

I'm not against rooting, I would rather wait until the dev team breaks JB. Then I can just root. Had a bad ROM and bricked HTC inc 2. Love the RAZR

With the utility 1.10 allowing people to go back to ICS, root, then return to JB, I doubt the devs are going to work on rooting JB. I followed the utility 1.10 procedure and it worked perfect. I recommend that, else live without wireless tethering.

I remember when GB leaked for the X2, and came pre-rooted thanks to P3Droid. Why can't custom roms be like that anymore?

Basically because the world got itself in a big damn hurry, and people more than likely don't want to reinvent the wheel so to speak

Question JB 4.1.1 and wifi hack

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.

Go to the Utility 1.10 thread and download and follow the instructions for using the utility. If you've hacked before, you should be able to read the instructions and figure out how to root, protect, and take the update.

Then come back to this thread and follow the procedure for using the sqlite editor to hack the hotspot app.
