I had an app called Quick Settings that I couldn't find anymore (Green sprocket for a logo) there was another one that has a blue sprocket logo that doesn't work.

**update, doesn't work, well it "works" but has a redirect to a TMobile sign in**

No luck here, bud.
What sucks the most is that my entire reason for rooting was to utilize the WiFi tethering apps. Let me know if you find anything, please.

Thanks in advance,

With the T-Mobile version of the phone, you get nothing but a message telling you to try their mobile hotspot services for $15 more (on top of the $70 that I'm already paying). It's a problem with the T-Mobile LG L9 (P76910e) that was supposedly fixed with the latest 10g update, but -- just my luck -- I'm unable to acquire the update for some reason. I've received the notification to update TWICE already, and both time have tragically failed. I don't know whats going on, man.

I am wondering the same thing, and I, too, get that blocked message whether I'm rooted or unrooted. Someone needs to hurry and resolve the issue or I'll just be returning my phone (and I really don't want to since I enjoy it so much).

I have the TMobile version, unlocked and running on the Solavei network. At first, the Hotspot function was disabled. I downloaded "Wifi Tethering shortcut tool" and now it works.

I tried PDANET+ (Foxfi), Barnacle and Wifi Tethering (Yellow Wifi symbol) and none of them work.

When using PDANET, It says the Hotspot is connected, I can see it in my connections on my computer but it tells me I cannot connect to that network.

When using Barnacle, I get a message stating "Wifi: Could not set ad-hoc mode of wlan0: Operation not supported on transport endpoint

When using Wifi Tethering, I get the same kind of message about ad-hoc

foxfi works for me. If someone wants to send me a rooted system dump I'll attempt a build.prop edit to bypass the tmobile services authentication. Not sure if that'll work but it's worth a shot. I'm on 10g but I'm not rooted so I can't tinker with mine to find a way. PM me if you've got a rooted system dump.

Hmm. When I was using T-Mobile pre paid it said I wasn't authorized, because I didn't pay the $15. But when I switched to simple mobile the native hotspot works just fine. I'm not rooted or unlocked.

I tried Foxfi, but it was limited. I didn't like having to restart it once you reach a certain amount of data. The "Wifi tethering shortcut tool" actually enables the embedded TMobile app. I tap the shortcut and it brings up the regular hotspot menu to turn it on.
