Did not work. Im not saying this app does not work, just did not work on my device. The device rom does not support tethering and carrier (sprint) blocks tethering from being enabled. This is truly a pain to add a feature that was not supported from start. Even a rooted device does not have the capabilities to make this change. Another feature that sprint takes away from users. Was worth a shot though, if it was successful, It would have been outstanding. Kyocera Hydro 4.0.4 (rooted)
Sprint LG-G2 Rooted and on a custom ROM (D3rp G2) with the native Hotspot hacked to allow it without subscription. The mod incorporated with the ROM occasionally needs a reboot to allow a device to connect to the internet through the Hotspot. But with jTether, a reboot is no longer needed. Very nice toggle. Keep up the good work!
GREAT APP. NEED TO REBOOT PHONE AFTER INSTALL I upgraded my rooted HTC EVO 4G LTE to Android 4.3 not knowing that there is no support for any free wireless tether app. While my phone was really fast, I could no longer tether for free. I tried every app you could think of and nothing works but this one. You must choose the option to remember when you grant permissions for root and you must reboot after first install. This app must request root permission like 20 times back to back. I got it to work and now I can tether LTE for free with 4.3 jelly bean.
Xperion ROM Niiiiice work devs, simplistic and easy. I even love the lil red Android icon, B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!! and to the gentalman below use stock WiFi app to turn this apps connection off, nice and simple!!! Great app devs keep up the good work. and to the other person below the other one if you are rooted this app works PERIOD!!! & to person below them, what root user app are you using? I never had to reboot to get this to work & once I give an app SU rights it sticks thats it!
Finally..!! Hello, I write to say that somehow on my galaxy Note 3 I had broken the tethering option with some rom or something. Even reinstalling the whole original firmware was not getting it working. Searching and searching on & off for months actually got me on a webpage where in your comment #172 of last year you posted about this app. All of this is to say THANK YOU, and that your app is still relevant. Be well :-)
Great App Amazing app. I use it all the time. Only issue I have would be that it leaves wifi on when the app is shut down. I like that it turns on wifi as necessary but if it was off to being with it should leave it off. Consider it 4.5 stars. If this setting is fixed it'd be perfect.
Too many issues with several devices. switch back to former approach. Functionality aligned with 1.3
Other versions available here (also new beta): http://www.jaconet.org/?page_id=951
Full review of tethering management, now search system to find usable devices. It should work on devices that use different interface names instead of standard wlan0 and rndis*.
Some of the permission required (e.g. USB) will be used in future versions supporting also USB tethering.
