Thumbs up New Wi-Fi Tether For Root works on the Lucid!

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.googlecode.android.wifi.tether

Special thanks to Android Police via Google+.

I had tried installing the previous version and it error-ed out. Just downloaded version 3 and it works! Posting this while tethered to my Lucid.

I'm curious to know what kind of speeds you're getting on whatever device you have tethered to the Lucid. I'm still debating what my handset upgrade should be, but am also considering purchasing a wi-fi tablet which I would certainly want to tether to whatever LTE phone I buy.

Depends on where I am. I've gotten anything from 6 to 13Mb. Lately the 4G has been a little unreliable I've noticed. Shows bars and 4G symbol, but just sits there at times. It isn't consistent. I'm in Chicago.

Two notes:

1. I was able to unroot my phone, install the OTA, re-root and can confirm that the OTA does not conflict with the ability to use wireless tether.

2. Mine runs in ADhoc as well, but I get internet access.

One thing to check on is if you have any programs that control Wifi or data (I have JuiceDefender, which turns Wifi/Data off to save battery power), you'll be able to connect to the Lucid, but you won't get any internet access. Try disabling those programs and then launch Wifi tether and try it out.

I checked for programs and I don't have any such as Juice Defender. Shabby suggested foxfi and that worked successfully for me so who knows. Thanks for the response though.

Default Stock Lucid

Hey, I'm a little late to the game, but my fiancÚ just got the Lucid today. I haven't touched it yet, but I'm ready to apply what you all have set up so far. Before I root it, is there anything anyone wants to look at? There were earlier posts about stock phones and testers and I'd be glad to help if it meant getting CMwhatever to this phone.

Same here. My wife got a Lucid 2 months ago, moving from a Pre+, and needed to continue to tether her TouchPad to her phone. FoxFi will has worked superbly on her non-rooted Lucid.

Did you try Wifi Analyzer on your TouchPad, as I suggested in the thread you started? What were the results?

What channel did the Lucid show up on and was it congested?

As far as I know FoxFi is not doing an adhoc network.

Probably my bad, this thread is for Wireless Tether for Root and not tether in general.
