WiFi Tether for Root Users

Available in :
WiFi Tether for Root Users

*** Use this application at your own risk. It is possible that use of this program may violate your carrier's Terms of Use/Terms of Service. ***

This program enables wifi-tethering for "rooted" handsets.

Clients (your laptop for example) can connect via wifi and get access to the internet using the mobile connection (4G, 3G, 2G) of your phone.

Wifi-tethering creates a so called adhoc (peer-to-peer) network on most devices.
Infrastructure-mode is suppported for a large set of devices.


1) Root
2) Netfilter-enabled kernel (most stock-kernel nowadays come with such a kernel).


-) Widget-support. One-click enabling/disabling from your home-screen.
-) Disable tethering after a configurable idle-time.
-) Access-control feature. Allow/deny clients to use your mobile-data connection.
-) Wifi-Encrytion. 128-bit WEP in general (adhoc). WPA/WPA2 on supported devices (infrastructure-mode).
-) Settings for wifi-ssid, wifi-channel, „lan“-network and more.
-) And more ...


-) On HTC devices with stock rom it's required to enable "Routing fix" from app-settings.
-) If only certain websites can be opened you might have to enable "MSS Clamping" in app-settings.
-) If you notice reboots or if the wifi-interface is unusable after tethering UNCHECK the "Force wifi-driver reload"-option in app-setting.

Best Tether APP out there Awesome app works great with root.. must be ROOTED

by A Google User the 1/15/2013

Flawlessly Five Stars! Since my days on the original Motorola Droid, I have used this developer's app. Back then, you had to do research to find out which version of the app worked with whichever version device you were using. This app has come a LONG way, and it's fantastic! Show your support for someone who's given us free WiFi Tether for YEARS. Thank you!

Tmobile S3 Rooted jellybean ROM Works good on factory ICS, but once I installed a Jellybean ROM it no longer works. Developer please fix this, your app is the only reason I rooted my phone. I will give 5 stars once it works.
