    I would just root anddelete the program that blocks the stock hotspot from working, actually that's exactly what I did, works great.

    I think its ATT network management that you want to freeze.

    Would it be too much to ask you to walk me through it? Step by step... not Geek Squad speed, you are dealing with an old man here that is not smart on smart phones.

    Well, I am rooted, got titanium backup, and a few other apps, but Android Market has me blocked by ATT for getting Barnacle wireless AP application for the Samsung GS II i777.

    Probably I screwed something up or some AT&T application I forgot to freeze out with Titanium Backup.
