AS soon as I received the second message my tether stopped working. I am rooted running XquizIt v70 Rom, KT747 9-5 Kernel WiFi tether 3.2 beta 2. My computer I was tethering to is a MacBook Pro running Lion using google chrome browser.
This is just a heads up to you guys and if anyone knows a workaround let me know.
T-Mobile and Google definitely tried hard with jellybean to eliminate any type of WiFi tethering. They even successfully made the WiFi tether for root users and open garden useless. And the one none root that worked for us unlimited 4g data planners, the 15$ SVTP WiFi/USB tethering app freezes at opening. I thought that was it. But low and behold all thanks to developer TrevE whoever you are cause he cracked the problem. Several rooted custon ROMs like xquisitare coming with his modified app built in to the update/ROM. But for everyone else just Google search WiFi tether for root TrevE mod. You will have to download the .apk file and check "allow non market apps" in security settings but that's it. The newest is modv22 and its great. Easy access tons of options and it flies. Better luck next time Google. And of course the play store does not have the modifies working version. I have paid for every app on there root or no root and after the updated sniffers this is the only option.
PS praise be to triangle away!! I rooted my phone (GS3 t999) two days before my allshare cast hub arrived fed ex from Korea and thought thanks to rooting I bought an 80$ paperweight. But the play store all share update and triangle away resetting my flash counter and now everything is working! Even Samsung media Hub downloads and all
