So my question is - what's a reliable (and unlimited) wifi tether app that can be used on a rooted Atrix 2 running ICS?
Thanks in advance!
You could always try the FoxFi paid version, and see if it works. Then request a refund if it doesnt.
Also you can do this:
The entitlement check is a setting built into the AT&T ROM by default to check whether you have permission from your carrier to do things like Wifi and USB Tethering. Why it does this check upon connecting a Webtop accessory I'm not quite sure, but anyway...
Things you will need to disable it:
ES File Explorer (free from play store)
aSQLiteManager (free from play store)
1. Launch ES File Explorer and within its settings, grant it full root permissions (near the bottom of settings, go in and check all four checkboxes).
2. From ES File Explorer navigate upward out of your SD card and onto the root of your device, then go into Data/Data/com.motorola.android.providers.settings/databases
3. Copy the "settings.db" file found there over to your SD card
4. Using aSQLiteManager select "Open Database" and pick that settings.db file on your SD card.
5. Select "settings" from the four tables you are presented with
6. Select "Data" from the top button menu
7. You'll see a long list of crap. Hit PgDn untiul you see line 113 "entitlement_check". Hit Edit and change the value from 1 to 0.
8. While you're here, also go to lines 117 and 118 that start with "dun" and change them both from 0 to 1. This is not necessary for Webtop but will enable wifi hotspot tethering.
9. Exit aSQLiteManager, go back into ES File Explorer and this time copy the modified "settings.db" back into the previous/original folder from Step 2, overwriting the old file.
10. Exit ES File Explorer, reboot your device and Webtop should work as expected.
