Just recently bought a Asus Nexus 7 and I find it an awesome device.

Unfortunately, I was surprised to see there is no option to turn my device into a wifi hotspot
or to share my nexus internet through USB to other computers.

thus I am now looking for apps that can help me achieve this
and would greatly appreciate anyone who has any recommendation for me..

p.s :- I tried wifi Hotspot and Foxfi (free version for both) but I can get neither computers no other mobile phones
to connect to the wifi hotspot they created through my nexus

Thank you.

Barnacle? Open garden? Pdanet? Foxfi? Easy tether?

I'm sorry..

my nexus 7 is running stock ROM..

it seems that with stock, the wifi hotspot is "blocked" or crippled or whatever..

now wonder when I used wifi hotspot of Foxfi, other devices can see my wifi but unable to access it..

I may need to root my N7, but I have never done rooting before and is a bit apprehensive in doing so..

trying to look up the easiest to understand guide as to how to root my n7 now..

additional info :- I am running android 4.2.2 and my N& build is jdq39

if anyone can point me to a guide to root my N7 with a little more ease, please do..

ok, i just saw this thread..

can anyone help confirm that this root ROM has the function to let me wifi hotspot with my nexus 7?

Also, if I were to successfully root.. am I able to return this to stock ROM if ever I feel the Root not to my liking?
