Free wifi tether to Kindle how-to guide
How to wifi tether on your rooted exhibit ii 4g phone without paying a t-mobile tethering fee
Hereís how to tether on your rooted phone. The key to this info is that it provides a wifi signal that is acceptable to basic Kindles and Kindle Fire tablets. Most tethering apps give only an Ad-Hoc wifi connection, which isnít acceptable to Kindles and various other devices. The following method works for anything that needs a wifi connection.
Root your phone
Backup the Tethering Manager file called TetheringManager2.apk. This is the file that is used for the T-Mobile tethering, which comes with a fee that you will avoid by following these instructions.
Freeze or delete the tetheringmanager2.apk file.
Install android-wifi-tether from http://android-wifi-tether.googlecode.com
Use 3.2-beta6 BETA VERSION
After downloading that app, open the app, and then click on SETTINGS. Then click on CHANGE DEVICE PROFILE and select Samsung Galaxy S. There is no option for the Exhibit ii device profile, but for whatever reason, you must use the Samsung Galaxy S profile and it works fine. So select that profile. Next in SETTINGS, click SETUP Method, and select AUTO.
Then in SETTINGS select CHANGE CHANNEL, and select AUTO.
Then in SETTINGS make sure WIFI-DRIVER RELOAD is selected with a green checkmark (I donít know if this is necessary, but just do it).
Then in SETTINGS make sure that ENABLE ACCESS-CONTROL is NOT selected. Make sure the green check mark is turned off.
In Settings, turn on the green checkmark for ROUTING FIX
You DO NOT need to have WIFI turned on in the status bar of your phone. It can be turned off when you open the WIFI Tether app. I think if itís turned on when you open the app, the app turns it off. But regardless, you donít need to turn it on before you open the app to start tethering.
Close the app. You might need to reboot your phone so the settings are applied. Then open the app. Youíll be ready for free wifi tethering with your Kindle or other devices that want a better wifi than Ad-Hoc mode.
