Just a heads up to anyone who still has the original UDP and wants to keep wifi tethering with FoxFi. YOU CANT.

The 7.0 update blocks wifi tether by foxfi and bluetooth tether. I was able to get USB tether to work using PDAnet but your pretty much stuck to using a pc or mac.

also... there was something i read about ejecting the sim as you try to enable the stock wifi hotspot, as a trick that worked. unfortunately that seems to have been blocked by verizon - the phone forces you to reboot a before you get any connectivity back after ejecting a sim card.

Marshmallow downgrade is easy and effective. You will have to clear data and freeze the Samsung updater afterwards but oh well.

Silly question - how do you downgrade to Marshmellow? By using Factory Data Reset?

Foxfi works fine on my Verizon s6 edge... Just go to settings and turn on WiFi Hotspot as if you are paying for it and it starts foxfi ☺️

I'd reference this thread on downgrading.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/ver...5-1-1-t3489816

Factory Data Reset just wipes your apps, media, settings, accounts and etc. It is what you would you use if you were to resell or return your phone for some reason.
It doesn't touch the firmware.
You will use the Factory Data Reset from Maintenance mode in the process of downgrading after you flash the appropriate firmware. But before you go downgrading don't forget to turn off re-activation lock. And all of this is if your phone's firmware is still down-gradable.

Mmm, it says I need to purchase a subscription.

So many years I've used my phone as a hot spot. I paid for FoxFi, etc. This is really disappointing.

I've tried "Net Share", but it's a pain and limited - had to install software on my laptop, etc.

Do I have any options with this phone? Is there a phone that will work?
