    Does wifi tether work in rooted stock 4.2.2 ?

    I'm running stock 4.2.2 but rooted. I cannot get "wifi tether for root users" to work. It shows that it is on but no other devices can see its SSID. I had no problems on 4.2.1.

    Has anyone had success rooting stock 4.2.2 and getting "wifi tether for root users" to work? I had the exact same issue with Cyanogenmod 10.1 .

    Thanks a lot for the input.

    There might be apps on the market that allow you to do it maybe. A custom ROM will too. Mind you, if you get caught by the carrier, and most cases you will, you will be charge with penalties for services you don't really have. Assuming you don't have a tether plan of course.......

    If you flash the native tether patch found here the stock tether app works, it just removes the carrier verification.

    Thanks a lot! Native tethering works correctly after running carrier-check patch.

    I'm not having any luck with mine at all. I tried this method, customer ROMs, tons of different tethering apps, no luck whatsoever.

    Are you unable to tether? Built in should work on plenty of Roms..

    Take a look at MMuzzy's it's solid..

    I got the patch flashed and it works perfectly. For some reason I couldn't boot into stock recovery and had the use Wug's toolkit to do the flash

    I posted this in another thread about wireless tether here. I thought might deserve a repeat. Sorry if that upsets anyone.

    Unlocked Galaxy Nexus on prepaid T-Mobile. Rooted, but otherwise stock. Android 4.2.2: AirDroid from the Play Store DOES wireless tethering. The developers pitch AirDroid as a way to access your phone from a web browser (works well), "and more" they say. "More" is wireless tethering! There goes my last reservation about Unlocked Galaxy Nexus and prepaid T-Mo.

    (I tried EasyTether, ClockworkMod Tether, and Muller's "WiFi Tether for Root Users" over and over again, trying every suggestion I came across. None of them ever worked for me on this platform. I had a soft spot for "WiFi Tether for Root Users" because it had worked with my original Moto Droid, Andy 2.3, on Verizon.)
