Could someone with better knowledge on this assist. I cant get my phone to switch from IPv6 in APN protocol to IPv4. As soon as i try to change the protocol, i lose my data connection on the phone. Thanks for any help. I appreciate it.
What ROM you are using would be helpful.
I would suggest if you can, create a new APN with all the details of the default one but make it all ipv4
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1962752I am using Chroma. I tried to create a new APN and wouldnt work. I switched to Pure Nexus, same result. Checked with a friend on t-mobile and he also had the same problem (not sure which rom he uses). Thanks.
I wish all the other devs would adopt this method. It makes things so much easierJovys ROM has the same tethering method as I used in my ROM on the Note 2. No apn changes, and works with the native tethering app.
Truthfully you may want want to get some help from the tmobile m9 forums. I don't think there is a show stopper as as far as tethering on the n4 though. Just may need to use foxfi or wtrHey guys im thinking about switching back to tmobile from verizon because of there new contracts and will probably use tethering ill get the unlimited plan but are there any phones I should avoid im on a htc one m8 so I would like the m9 I do plan on rooting it first thing anyway
Yes because the built in tether app registers on the device side indicating hotspot data in use regardless of the device attached.I have not experience a un-rooted phone in a long time.
For un-rooted phone, if you hotspot on another Android device, does the allotment goes up?
Found a fix for my NOTE 4 5.0.1
After looking through a few forums i put two methods together and BAM
SPEC: 910T on 5.0.1 (CF AUTO ROOTED)
WIFI TETHER ROUTER SETTINGS:
1. wifi channel: 1
2. interface: wlan0
3. method: 3 HostApd
4. no firmware reload: UNCHECKED
5. drivers: nl80211
6. wifi mode: G
7. prevents standby: CHECKED
8. MTU adjust: UNCHECKED
9. HostApd Patch: CHECKED
Finally leave everything else below UNCHECKED ***EXCEPT**
10. No Disable WiFi: CHECKED
REMEMBER TO HAVE YOUR APN SETTINGS CORRECT: Settings > More Networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names
Click on your APN you setup and make sure your APN type is: default,mms,supl,hipri,fota
This fixed my issue with crappy WiFi speeds
The link posted above has worked for me in the past, even on lollipop. Give that a try. Just follow the directions.

I have been running this for two days now, and it's working (almost) perfectly. WiFi tether router is absolutely killing my battery life and is overheating my phone. Is it possible to do this with a different app like foxfi?

Ditto. WiFi tether router will run through my battery in 3 hours flat. Does the job, but it's definitely a compromise.
Yea it'd do the same to me. Luckily I don't use it for very long periods at a time. I usually use it while I'm at work and my device is plugged in anyway so I don't really notice it.
I guess you gotta suffer for making your phone into a wireless network modem

I'd agree if it weren't for the built in method barely touching the battery.
I use tethering all the time, my kids tether off my phone when we're in the car or traveling since my line is unlimited. I'll have to re-read this thread and see if any of the roms have the built in working properly.
