FoxFi is a great app but with the free version of foxfi you get knocked off the internet by the app and told to purchase the full version or restart app.
Don't want to pay your service provider or for an app to make your android phone a wifi hotspot?
This is how you hack foxfi and avoid getting knocked off the internet.
This method was tested on a samsung galaxy prevail (android 2.3.6 gingerbread.ff19) with boost mobile unlimited 2.5gb data(I know I have used more at this point).
First download the latest pdanet from the play store. Then download the latest FoxFi and addon.
Start PdaNet and select wifi hotspot mode.
Activate wifi hotspot.
Make sure it starts up properly and whatever device you want to connect connects.
Open the task manager and select the active apps tab.
Shut down foxfi and pdanet.
I have had it working for the past week and its great. I am not sure how long this will last but I will post something as soon as it happens. Or not considering I am using it now on my laptop to post this.
Would like to hear if this method works with other phones and service providers.
