Rock Some WiFi Tethering Without Root Thanks to FoxFi

I’ve always been a fan of WiFi tethering as I am sure most of you folks that have used it are too. However the one issue that we’ve had with WiFi tethering is that those of us who wanted this capability needed to either drop extra money a month for a tethering plan or we would have to root our devices to bypass that. Well that’s a thing of the past as the FoxFi brings wireless tethering capabilities to devices everywhere with no root required. That’s right folks those non-rooted folks who had to be tethered via USB cable can now enjoy the freedom of wireless tethering.

This can be done either through WiFi or Bluetooth. However while Bluetooth mode works on all devices WiFi mode only works on most Motorola and Samsung devices. I say most as the original Droid, Triumph, Samsung Admire as well as any HTC phone will have to tether through Bluetooth.

Hit the break below to find the Google Play Store Link or QR Code. As of right now the Atrix 2/4G isn’t supported and there is a bug with the Triumph that causes the app to crash but they are working on an update for that. HTC has a lock on WiFi hotspots so all you’ll get is Bluetooth mode. However that shouldn’t affect you folks too greatly. I recommend getting this app now before your respective carriers take it out of the store! Enjoy!

    I’m sure they can still tell that you are tethered. I don’t see how the app can get around that…

    I wouldn’t say all HTCs, we have a Desire S and Desire Z here and both do WiFi tethering out-of-the-box with no problem.

    Do we know if this app is safe? Can the carrier actually detect it?
