    Re: Wifi tether for root users

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    Some of us are on the old grandfathered unlimited data plan with Verizon, this plan does not include tethering like their new share everything plans. So we rely on root and custom ROMs (or apps) in order to tether.

    While tethering is an option the phone, we cannot successfully use it unless a ROM developer works their magic

    Welcome to the forum.. You can check out Foxfi (PDA net +) and there are a few others without root.. Clockwork Mod has one I believe as well..

    Hey everybody.

    Been waiting to root. Home internet has been off a lot and I'm job hunting so I got the Note 2 with AT&T rooted to tether. Did a Titanium back up. Barnacle wi-fi tether would not work. Had to call service provider to be able to tether and had to buy $20 for 2 more GB/month for a total of 5 GB allowed. I don't use a GB/month on my data plan before needing to tether.

    Thought I could just root, get Barnacle and start tethering. Do I have to install a different ROM to tether? AT&T said I can shut off the added data service anytime. Just want to know if AT&T has got a block from tethering?

    Thanks

    I'm rooted, but I always use the stock wifi tether in settings menu. I still have to pay for the data plan. I think in the old days you had to pay for the hotspot, but to many people were getting around that, so now they just charge you for data.

    I think I got to the bottom of it. Been a while since I messed around with this stuff. First off I installed Clockwork MOD like BKdodger suggested up top. Then ran a backup with Clockwork which now negates the Titanium backup I bought right? Now I just need to get a ROM installed and I'm ready to tether without AT&T right?

    Titanium back up is a handy tool to have. Don't give up on it yet.

    If you're talking about CWM Recovery, it's completley different than Titanium Backup. CWM will make like a PC backup image, it will have tour missed calls, texts and everything. Titanium Backup is just to back up all of your apps, you shouldn't use it to backup system data when flashing a new rom - just your apps.

    You don't need to flash a ROM to tether, although most of them have the tethering built in. If you are rooted you can use Treve mod's tether. Works great. Get the APK here WifiTether_TrevE_Mod_11_22_2012.apk | by TrevE for Galaxy S 3_VZW and then here are the settings I use:

    Device Profile: Galaxy S3 (closest to the note)
    Change setup method: Netd-Ndc (master)
    Sent Netd Max Client Cmd: check
    Enable wifi encryption: check (set your password)
    Wifi driver reload: check (only the first one, not reload 2)
    Routing fix: check (might already be defaulted that way)
