    Recently got this phone, works well & she ain't bad on the eyes either! ;) Rooted successfully with framaroot app as well.

    Question is! Does anyone have an idea how to tether wirelessly? I've tried Wifi tether for root users but the phone shuts it down after a few seconds etc Tried a million different apps! Can't get her to work with me haha

    I heard ZTE phones have this problem allegedly so whatever FRACKERS ;)

    If no wireless option, then is there a reliable usb tether app out there?

    Hey, thanks for any help in advance!

    I was going to post and ask the same thing. Not sure why tethering is not working. I've only tried WiFi Tether and Barnacle and neither works for me. They both show that they are tethering, but they don't broadcast a SSID and I tried to manually connect by typing in the SSID and still couldn't connect.

    I have an older version of wifi tether for root and it installs fine and broadcast ssid. Said it was connected but was very slow. I left it alone after that, I'm sure the settings can be tweaked and it should work fine. It probably would be a good idea NOT to let it update. I'll upload a copy to my dropbox and you can try that.

    This copy of wifi tether worked great on my first Warp. (3g) Did not own a warp sequent so don't know about that one. I don't think it was zte but boost could have something to do with it not working properly.

    I've tried your copy and it still doesn't work for me. Not sure what's up. I've tried to play with the settings and rebooting a few times as well and it still doesn't broadcast the SSID.

    you may have to tweak some settings, try all the different profiles. its not boost its ztes software that is the issue. just keep firing at it till you hit something or run out of bullets

    I have been using WiFi Tether Router by Fabio Grasso for the last 2 weeks and it works great on my Boost Warp 4G

    You dont have to buy anything, or be chained to a usb, change device profile to generic ics/jb (wlan0) under wifi settings and set a wifi encryption wpa/wpa2. I use wifi tether TrevE mod. But i would figure itd work with any root wifi app with alittle tweaking ;) oh and enable access control and dont forget to allow your connecting device

    Thanks!!!
    I finally got it to work (SSID is broadcasting now) using your settings above.

    EDIT:
    although I can connect devices. I get a error message on the phone:
    "loading WiFi driver..."
    failed

    So still no actual tethering.

    EDIT:
    Rebooted went back into access control and enabled client Mac address

    Now up up and running!!!!! :)
