Question Newbie here again...tethering, possible or no???

Ok so for a couple days now I've been doing more & more with this phone thanks to all of you guys who've provided me with top notch info, now I need help with this tethering business... I am rooted, have S-OFF, and am running Mobster ROM HD. I haven't been able to get any kind of tethering to work properly so that I actually can connect to the internet from my laptop which is running 64-Bit Windows 7 (not even sure if that's relevant). So far I've tried the actual WiFi tethering (couldn't connect to the internet). Then I tried usb tethering & got "error code 67" data failure message & another message saying something about me contacting sprint because my account does not include mobile hotspot & tethering. Then I tried the bluetooth tethering option, but couldn't figure out how. I turned on the bluetooth on my computer & phone, paired both of them, but then wasn't sure how to go about connecting to the internet ...


Before I got into this forum & started rooting & s-offing & stuff, I tried out Virgin's $15 Mobile Hotspot service for 1 month. After that month I took the Hotspot service back off of my VM account because I couldn't justify paying an extra $15 for such SLOW speeds...

Under Device Profile in the settings, are you using Generic ICS/JB (wlan0)?

If not, try that, then report back.

Yes, tethering works at least in Mobster's ROM. You need to use a 3rd party app called "WiFi Tether" found here (although I think Mobster's already includes it): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.googlecode.android.wifi.tether&hl=e n

Using this app go into settings and change "Device-Profile" to "Generic ICS/JB" and turn on the routing fix. It should now work.

EDIT: I was a minute late

Most of the AOSP based ROM's have WiFi tethering built-in but if you need to use the WiFi Tether app on one of those ROM's you need the version linked from this post and also need to use the settings described there. That version of WiFi Tether also works on Sense 4.1 ROM's like Viper3D which is what it was originally created to support.

Try the midnight rom series if you want to easily tether ^_^ they all have either a built in tether app (sense/senseless) or native working tethering (jellybean) ^_^

Don't use the sprint tether unless you're paying for it. You need a third party tether app.

Did you go into settings and check generic ICS wlan0 and the routing fix, those are the options required to get the wifi tether app to work.

PACman ROM is having this same issue. I dont think the wifi tethering works properly in 4.2.2 based ROMs.
