I have been at this now for 3 days. I bought a samsung galaxy centura with STRAIGHT TALK from wal mart.. Straight Talk does not allow tethering and has modified the stock firmware to disable it. So when you go into wifi settings and click more, there is no TEHtheRINg options..
There are alot of apps out there and I think I have tried them ALL and this is the reason I rooted my phone and I jsut DL the new custom rom from VIP last night thinking this would fix the issue, but still nothing..
I was told JB thether works with the new rom for wifi tethering.. also blue tooth tethering..
i simply jsut want to be able to use my 10" tablet in the car to surf the web when on long trips.. im not going to try to stream netflix movies and run the GB data thru the roof.. I hear that will get you booted..
I have tried rooted apps to enable tethering and I get it all installed but it simply wont authenticate..
Is there a way for the new custom rom to turn the tethering settings back on in the options menu?
i am sure there is a way..
does anyone else have a STRAIGHT TALK PHONE and a centura and got tethering to work for wifi..
if so let me know what app you used and how you did it exactly?
I been trying for days with no luck at all!!!!!!!
I get as far as to connecting the devices and i cant obtain an ip address or it wont authenticate..
i finally htought i got it and it connected but then on the tablet i couldnt connect to the internet or nothing?!?!?
what app will work for the straight talk centura? and is there a way to change the settings on the custom rom.. I know its still in development..
Can you simply turn on the tethering settings in the settings when you hit more.... so it shows up!!
please chime in ... thanks for all the help already.. i got the vip custom rom working and all is working great!!
except tethering on straight talk!! they are doing all types of stuff to block it and i guess its working..
