Tablet [Q] Free FoxFi Wifi on Verizon Note 2 with Stock Rom

I got the message to update today so I pulled the battery.
The only thing I care about is My free WiFi Hot Spot.
The last update KILLED my free FoxFi hot spot. But I was able to get it to work again by

(1) turning the phone off,
(2) removed the SIM card,
(3) retried FoxFi, without the SIM card, That got me passed Verizon's Subscription Check and Allowed FoxFi to install a security certificate.
(4) turned the phone back off and reinstalled the SIM card.
(5) turned the phone back on and my FREE WiFi Hot Spot has been working every since.

Could someone that has already taken the latest update try this and let me know if it will work ?

Not sure if you mean the free version of foxfi or just free Hotspot. But I used paid foxfi and have no problems on latest update without that work around.
