    Anyone know of a tethering widget or shortcut that works on the G2?

    Are you rooted? BT, wired or wireless tethering?

    I used Elixir to put a widget on my status bar that takes me directly to the Mobile Hotspot page of Settings, saving a couple of steps.

    I don't think they are talking about a shortcut.

    Yeah I'm looking for something that will directly turn it on and off but thanks for the idea.

    I am using FoxFi (available in the Play Store) on my G2. Works for me and tethering is included on my plan, am not rooted.

    Foxfi is not what I'm looking for.

    I have not seen such a widget in my travels and I've been interested in the same thing. It'd be ideal if it were added to the existing widget banner but if it exists, I think it would be in a custom rom somewhere. I have not seen that nor a separate flashable mod for it. And it appears that none of the existing hotspot widgets work on this phone, KitKat, or both.

    What was wrong with FoxFi? If Klotar says it works...

    Why not write one? :D

    Foxfi doesn't work for what I'm asking for.

    Yeah we already have the hotspot. What we are looking for is a quick toggle to activate/deactivate it rather than going through the multiple steps required when using the settings menu.

    You mean, you're not looking for something to manipulate provisioning... just automate the slider in Settings?
