  2. Once done, tap to launch the SQlite App editor and select Settings Storage.
  3. Once in Settings Storage, tap to select settings.db.
  4. Now select Settings and after that tap on menu button followed by selecting Set_Filter option.
  5. Now in the Set_Filter field, type “check” and press OK.
  6. In the resulting menu, set the value of “entitlement_check” to zero.
  7. After this reboot your phone.
  8. Now once your phone reboots, Run the mobile hotspot app on your phone.

  1. bartimus – Thanks for the recommendation of ashell and asqlitemanager! Awesome! Screw FoxFI and their stupid crap, I can not believe they made their old version which was free and worked awesome payware, and broke it. Did Verizon pay them off to cripple their software… sure seems like it…..

  2. Still unable to connect. Seems as though Verizon is successfully blocking access through these methods to their 3G and 4G networks in our area.

  3. You can use aSQLite manager and aShell instead of SQLlite for free in the market (bit of a noob so took me a while to understand any of this). Path is data/data/com.motorola.android.providers.settings to get to it
